Kendrick Lamar and Problem Had a Conversation Following Drake’s Release of “Family Matters”

“‘This ain’t it. Man, it’s time to step on his head.’”


Although the intense feud between Drake and Kendrick Lamar has subsided, fresh details keep emerging. Problem recently shared details of a chat he had with another rapper from Compton following the release of the Toronto artist’s “Family Matters.”

The rapper joined The Bootleg Kev Podcast last week and is now known by his government identity, Jason Martin. He discussed his and K. Dot’s original thoughts on the seven-minute track by 6 God. “I’m going to give you some true wisdom. You’re the first to hear this,” he said. After Drake released “Family Matters,” I texted Kendrick and said, “This ain’t it.” It’s time to tread on his head, man. Say less, he was like.

Less than an hour had passed since Drizzy’s venomous diss track, and when the rapper from A Compton Story put down his phone, he saw that Lamar had already dropped “Meet The Grahams.” “Wait, wait, wait!” I exclaimed. Recall the issue. “Ni**a, you already [dropped the song?!],” I text him. “I’ve been waiting for this ni**a to drop something,” he exclaims. Drake had no idea what he was going to receive. Drake really did shoot a video and all this crap. At times, it’s necessary to simply know what to do and what not to do.

Problem had seen Kendrick Lamar finish a song in 20 minutes during a 2010 studio session, so he was well aware of his talent even before he saw him perform in the duel with Drake. He remarked, “I’ve worked in the studio with the best people.” “I have never, ever seen something like it. He is the best of the best.

The Pulitzer Prize winner’s performance in this rap feud catapulted him to G.O.A.T status. At the end of March, he dropped a verse on Future and Metro Boomin’s song “Like That.” The following month, the “Rich Baby Daddy” singer retaliated with “Push Ups” and “Taylor Made Freestyle,” the latter of which was removed from social media when he received a cease and desist order.

Lamar followed up weeks later with “Euphoria” and, days later, “6:16 In LA.” The Degrassi actor fired back the same day and came out with “Family Matters,” only to be drowned out by the sinister “Meet The Grahams.” Finally, on an early Saturday evening, the PgLang artist dropped “Not Like Us” which was viewed as the knockout blow in the feud and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Drake attempted to salvage a victory with the narrative-spinning “The Heart Part 6,” but, according to the music community, the damage had already been done.

Drake has focused his musical efforts back on women since bowing out of the beef. He joined Sexyy Red on “U My Everything” last month and Snowd4y on the “Hey There Delilah” remix titled “Wah Gwan Delilah.”

He also promised to have “summer vibes” on the way, seemingly starting with his two features on Camila Cabello’s forthcoming album C, XOXO. He will join the Latin pop star on the song “Hot Uptown” and have his own interlude on the project with the track “Uuugly.”
