    Boo-hoo, the most popular rapper in the world isn't as well liked within hip-hop as a marginally less popular rapper. I don't know why we need to simp for the guy who only has less streams than like Taylor Swift and Bad Bunny like he doesn't have a rabid army of delusional stans making tinfoil hat conspiracy theory cork boards just like Kendrick's stans are.

    I don't doubt that Kendrick is more well-liked within hip-hop, but this beef was viewed on a worldwide stage. It wasn't just rap nerds like us tuning in and awaiting the back and forth like Pac vs BIG or Jay vs Nas. This was the first time two rappers of this level of fame/popularity went at it during the age of social media. You have people paying attention who have heard much more Drake than they have Kendrick simply by nature of the radio and rap caviar existing. It's perhaps the only moment I've ever experienced outside of like COVID/US presidential elections where it felt like twitter was one singular place rather than a bunch of distinct communities because everyone was talking about it. It wasn't just rap fans judging who was winning.

    Drake lost because he was outmaneuvered and Kendrick had better diss tracks overall (and Heart Pt 6 flopped), even if Push Ups and Family Matters are both great diss tracks that will also go down in the diss track pantheon. I don't think anyone is discrediting those tracks besides the most hardcore kendrick stans. it's irrelevant whether or not he was disadvantaged in a vacuum because he would have lost in either scenario lol

    So...immediately after Kendrick dropped Euphoria and before Drake had responded?

    When the millie bobby brown thing first happened I thought the reaction was overblown cuz I understand that, especially within the entertainment industry, you can have a little sibling or little cousin type relationship with people much younger than you.

    If it was just that alone I'd agree with you. But there's a pattern of behavior that's hard to ignore. Too much smoke for me not to think there's probably some sort of fire.

    I don’t feel bad for Drake at all lol. He’s a millionaire whose life won’t be impacted by any of this. Precisely why he basically said f--- all y’all & went on vacation to the Turks or wherever lmao.

    I’m just making a point re: public perception & Drake’s relative unfavorableness. It’s why after Push Ups, I said win or loss, Drake should be commended for actually staying true to the culture. He’s more than big enough to just ignore all this BS & not even entertain it. That’s what most rap artist at his level of stardom do.


    This would have more footing & I would be more convinced if there was an actual accuser but it’s seemingly the opposite where a lot of the young women people are harping on Drake for interacting with, have actually come out defending him.

    Like I said, if texts leak of Drake sending d----s pics to teenage girls then by all means but as of right now, there is no fire so to speak. It’s just people smelling something & wondering if it’s smoke.

    This is tricky because the girls could be 100% okay with it but it doesn't mean it's correct. Not immediately saying Drake is a groomer but plenty of young girls don't know they're being groomed, that's kinda the point lol.

    It's crazy the difference in how Drake treats teenage girls and how he treats teenage boys.

    With teenage girls... he takes them to dinner.... he texts them all night.... he gives them advice for their love life... he kisses them and carrases their breast.

    With teenage boys... he steals their music... brags about having them murdered.

    A guy in this thread told me there are 12 confirmed sex offenders living at Drake’s house because there were 12 arrows on the Not Like Us cover art i think you’re giving people just a little too much credit fam
