Drake & Kendrick Lamar’s Rocky Relationship Explained


While making an appearance on The Big Podcast With Shaq to promote his basketball league The Big 3, the West Coast legend was asked his thoughts on the rap battle between the two current rap heavyweights. After saying that he “approves of rap battles” and that they’re “the essence of the game,” Cube added that he thinks Lamar is winning, but doesn’t think the battle is over.

“I think Kendrick is up. He’s landed the more hard and effective punches, but that don’t mean Drake can’t get off the canvas,” he said. “If I was Kendrick, I’d stay locked and loaded just to be ready for whatever’s coming.”

Ice Cube knows a little something about rap beefs. The former N.W.A. member famously went at his former group and label, Ruthless Records, on the 1991 diss track “No Vaseline,” which many consider one of the best diss songs of all time. The rapper also feels that way. During his set at the California Roots Festival in May, the rapper told the crowd why he thinks his record is still the best: “One MC — myself — I took out four motherf—ers and the manager. You can’t beat that.”

Shaq also talked about the time Cube blocked him from releasing a Dr. Dre produced track called “That’s Gangsta” because he felt is was too “off brand” for the then-Los Angeles Laker. “He’s loved by millions, loved by kids. He already established that. And why go backward when you’re already forward? You’re already a household name,” he said.

This isn’t the only rap news Shaq has made recently. Last week, the NBA Hall of Famer made his song with the Notorious B.I.G. “You Can’t Stop the Reign” available on streaming services.
