Drake Responds to Kendrick Lamar on New Song ‘Family Matters’, Lamar Shares ‘Meet the Grahams’ an Hour Later

After Kendrick Lamar shared ‘6:16 in LA’, his second Drake diss track of the week, on Friday, the rappers have delivered brand new diss tracks released within an hour of each other. Listen to Drake’s ‘Family Matters’ and Lamar’s ‘Meet the Grahams’ below.

Clocking in at over seven minutes, ‘Family Matters’ sees Drake taking more shots at Lamar and his wife Whitney Alford, rapping: “You the black messiah wifing up a mixed queen / And hit vanilla cream to help out with your self-esteem/ On some Bobby shit I wanna know what Whitney need/ All that puppy love was over in your late teens.”

Drake later turns his attention to the Weeknd (“a drugged out little punk sissy from the northside“), A$AP Rocky (“Gassed cause you hit my BM first n***a do the math who I was hitting then”) and Rick Ross (“Ross callin’ me the white boy, and the shit kinda got a ring to it/’Cause all these rappers wavin’ white flags while the whole fuckin’ club sing to it”).

At the end of the song, Drake seems to accuse the Compton rapper of domestically abusing a partner: “They hired a crisis management team/ To clean up the fact that you beat on your queen/ The picture you painted ain’t what it seems.”

An hour later, Lamar responded with ‘Meet the Grahams’, which begins by addressing Drake’s son, Adonis Graham: “Dear Adonis, I’m sorry that that man is your father, let me be honest/ It takes a man to be a man, your dad is not responsive/ I look at him and wish your grandpa woulda wore a condom/ I’m sorry that you gotta grow up and then stand behind him.”

In the second verse, Lamar speaks to Drake’s mother and father. “You raised a horrible fuckin’ person/The nerve of you, Dennis,” he tells his father, before turning to his mother Sandra: “Your son’s a sick man with sick thoughts/I think n—-s like him should die/Him and Weinstein should get fucked up in a cell for the rest of they life.” He then alleges that Drake is “hiding another child,” an 11-year-old daughter.

“Fuck a rap battle/ This a lifelong battle with yourself,” Lamar concluded.

Lamar reignited the feud last month by dissing Drake and J. Cole on his surprise verse on Metro Boomin and Future’s ‘Like That’. Cole later responded with ‘7 Minute Drill’, but then apologized for it and pulled the track from streaming. Drake fired back with the songs ‘Push Ups’ and ‘Taylor Made Freestyle’, to which Lamar responded with ‘Euphoria’ on May 1 and yesterday’s ‘6:16 in LA’.
