Megan Thee Stallion Sparks Drama with Kendrick Lamar Cover at L.A. Concert

Megan Thee Stallion

Megan Thee Stallion‘s “Hot Girl Summer” tour has been packed with unforgettable moments, but it’s also managed to steer clear of major drama with other artists—until now. The Houston rap queen added a touch of controversy during her Los Angeles show on Friday (June 21) by performing Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us,” subtly weighing in on the ongoing beef between Kendrick and Drake. Though it was just a brief rendition of the chorus accompanied by a playful dance, it made a significant statement.

Fans didn’t need Megan to declare Kendrick the winner in his feud with Drake—K.Dot’s triumphant “The Pop Out” show in L.A. on Juneteenth did that already. However, given Kendrick’s lyrical nods to Megan on “family ties” and her rocky history with Drake, her performance felt inevitable. For those out of the loop, tensions between Megan and Drake flared when he referenced a woman “lying about getting shots, but she’s still a stallion” on his 2022 album Her Loss. Megan perceived this as a direct jab, fueling the feud.

Adding to the drama, Megan’s beef with Nicki Minaj has also been heating up. Some speculate that her perceived disses toward Nicki were actually aimed at Drake. Whether these major rap battles will escalate or fade remains to be seen. Kendrick Lamar and his camp might move on, or Young Money could reignite the feud. Either way, it’s bound to be anything but a smooth resolution.

Amidst all this, Megan’s highly anticipated new album is on the horizon, building considerable buzz. Fans are eager to see if she’ll address the Kendrick-Drake rivalry or her personal issues with Drake in her new music. One thing’s for sure: Megan Thee Stallion knows how to keep us all on the edge of our seats.

Drake Sends Love to Security Chief Chubbs on Instagram Amidst Kendrick Lamar Feud

Drake

Drake has yet to publicly address Kendrick Lamar’s recent jab on “Pop Out,” but fans are eagerly analyzing his every move for subtle responses. In the meantime, the Toronto rap icon took to Instagram to honor his head of security, Chubbs, sharing a black-and-white photo of the two with a heartfelt message. “More life Capo,” Drake captioned the picture. “Plenty love in the family to go around and just wait till that other s**t comes back around [crying-laughing emoji] [party hat and confetti emoji] @chubbsview.”

This comes as no surprise, given the loyalty among Drake’s OVO crew, who have been vocal defenders amid the ongoing feud. Baka Not Nice, for instance, recently posted videos of Drake’s electrifying performance in Los Angeles, likely a counter to Kendrick Lamar’s powerful “The Pop Out” concert, which rallied the West Coast in support of K.Dot.

While speculation grows over whether Drake will directly respond to Kendrick’s diss, he seems more focused on dominating the charts and connecting with fans through his music. Meanwhile, the feud has sparked discussions in media circles. Joe Budden recently commented on DJ Akademiks’ coverage of the beef, suggesting a perceived bias due to Akademiks’ ties with Drake. “Good journalistic s**t you was doing, but you gotta know that any Drake news coming from you is viewed through a different type of eye,” Budden noted.

As 2024 unfolds, the rap world eagerly watches to see if Drake will continue to sidestep the drama or eventually fire back. With old controversies like the XXXTENTACION murder rumors resurfacing, it’s clear that the spotlight on Drake and his crew isn’t dimming anytime soon. Whether the Kendrick beef fizzles out or reignites, Drake’s loyalty to his team, especially Chubbs, remains unwavering.
