Kendrick Lamar Drops New Diss Track “6:16 in LA” Mocking Drake and OVO

Kendrick Lamar has taken another swipe at Drake with a second diss track arriving days after his first, “Euphoria.” The new song, “6:16 in LA,” parodies the titles of Drake’s popular, introspective “timestamp songs,” like 2013’s “4 PM in Calabasas” and 2023’s “8 AM in Charlotte.” In this latest track, Lamar doesn’t hold back, targeting both Drake and his OVO crew.

Kendrick Lamar’s lyrical prowess shines through as he raps over a soulful sample, exploring themes of freedom, self-discovery, and purpose. He calls out Drake as a “fake bully” and suggests that everyone in his team thinks he deserves the criticism.

“Are you finally ready to play have-you-ever? Let’s see/Have you ever thought that OVO was workin’ for me?” Kendrick raps on the track below. “Fake bully, I hate bullies, you must be a terrible person/Everyone in your team is whispering that you deserve it.”

Kendrick playfully references Drake’s viral hit, saying, “Can’t ‘Toosie Slide’ out of this one, it’s just gonna resurface.”


This feud between Kendrick Lamar and Drake has been heating up. Just a few days ago, Kendrick dropped “Euphoria,” a furious six-minute attack on Drake. Now, with “6:16 in LA,” he keeps the momentum going. The title itself is a nod to Drake’s famous timestamp records, where specific times and locations inspire fan-favorite songs. In this case, “616” likely represents June 16 (Father’s Day), adding another layer of significance.

This feud began with “Like That,” a diss track from Future and Metro Boomin’s collaboration album. Kendrick officially distanced himself from the “Big 3” (which included Drake). J. Cole responded with “7 Minute Drill,” and Drake entered the ring with “Push Ups.” The tension continues, and fans eagerly await the next move.
