Kendrick Lamar Strikes Back at Drake in ‘Euphoria’ Diss Track

After much anticipation and speculation, Los Angeles rapper Kendrick Lamar has finally unleashed his first full-fledged diss track aimed squarely at Drake. Titled ‘Euphoria,’ the track, released on April 30, serves as a direct response to Drake’s ‘Push Ups‘ diss song, which took shots at Kendrick, Future, Metro Boomin, Rick Ross, The Weeknd, and others in the rap industry.

In ‘Euphoria,’ Kendrick delivers scathing lyrics that cut deep into Drake‘s persona and musical style. One of the most notable lines in the track sees Kendrick labelling Drake as a “fake” within the rap industry, suggesting that he should stick to his strengths in singing melodies rather than attempting to portray a tough image.

Furthermore, Kendrick takes aim at the disparity between their respective rap deals, perhaps insinuating that Drake’s success may be more reliant on industry connections than artistic merit. He also addresses the issue of cultural appropriation, urging Drake to refrain from using the racially charged term “n*gga” in his music.

The six-minute-and-twenty-three-second-long track doesn’t just aim to diss Drake; it redefines Kendrick‘s persona in the process. Fans have noted that this is not the Kendrick they’re used to hearing; rather, it’s “Kung-fu Kenny” taking center stage, unapologetically asserting his dominance in the rap game.

“We don’t wanna hear you say n**ga” anymore, Kendrick chants in the song, highlighting a growing sentiment within the hip-hop community regarding cultural sensitivity and authenticity.

The release of ‘Euphoria’ marks a significant moment in the brewing rivalry between Kendrick Lamar and Drake. While both artistes have achieved immense success in their respective careers, their differing approaches to hip-hop and their occasional clashes have kept fans and critics alike captivated.

Euphoria‘ by Kendrick Lamar serves as a reminder of his lyrical prowess and his willingness to challenge the status quo, solidifying his place as one of the most formidable figures in contemporary rap music. “You got shit twisted, what is it the braids?… i hurt your feelings you don’t wanna work with me no more, ok,” Kendrick also rapped in the witty song.

Only time will tell how Drake will respond to Kendrick’s latest diss track. But for now, ‘Euphoria‘ stands as a testament to Kendrick Lamar’s ability to command attention and spark conversation with his words alone.
