50 Cent Says Drake “Smoked” Kendrick Lamar In New Diss Track

The rap world has been in disarray ever since Kendrick Lamar dissed both Drake and J. Cole on Metro Boomin and Future’s “Like That.” 

Lamar addressed their “Big 3” claim on “First Person Shooter” rapping, “Yeah get up with me, fuck sneak dissing / ‘First Person Shooter,’ I hope they came with three switches,” Lamar rapped, adding. “Motherfuck the big three, n—a, it’s just big me.”

In response, Cole released his diss track “7 Minute Drill,” but later expressed regret for releasing it, calling it the “lamest shit” he did.

Early Saturday morning (April 13), Drake finally entered the fray with a highly anticipated response. His four-minute diss track titled “Push Ups” took aim at several artists who had recently taken shots at him, including Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, The Weeknd, and Metro Boomin.


Drake directly addresses Lamar’s “Like That” verse, questioning his place among rap royalty: “Pipsqueak, pipe down / You ain’t in no big three, SZA got you wiped down, Travis got you wiped down, Savage got you wiped down / Like your label boy, you Interscope right now.”

He also had words for Rick Ross who appeared on “We Don’t Trust You” and unfollowed Drake on Instagram. He throws shade at Ross’s age and past career as a corrections officer, rapping, “I might steal your girlfriend, just like Ricky used to cuff women in prison. Can’t believe you’re jumping into this beef, you’re pushing fifty! Every hit song you ever had, you basically owe to me. Go cash that small paycheck and stay out of my business.”

In the hours after Drake unleashed his response, fans and critics have taken to social media to share their thoughts. 50 Cent weighed in, suggesting Drake “smoked” Lamar with “Push Ups.”

He posted on Instagram, “All you [ninja emoji] got smoked by a light skinned Ni66a. LOL YALL BETTER GET HIGH AS A MOTHER FVCKER AND COME UP WITH SOMETHING!” 


Rick Ross wasn’t taking the jabs lying down. He responded with his own scathing track titled “Champagne Moments,” where he alleges that Drake got a nose job to remove his Black features. 

The Weeknd, another target of Drake’s, reacted with a seemingly lighthearted approach, posting a picture on his Instagram story of himself enjoying popcorn and laughing.

Meanwhile, Drake has suggested he has more heat coming. In a text exchange shared with an unknown person, Drake said he’s “not even close” to pushing the “red button”.

As we the next move in this multi-artist rap war, see how the internet reacted to Drake and Rick Ross’ new tracks.
