Kendrick Lamar Disses Drake On Dr. Dre’s ‘Compton’ Album?



Many people are speculating whether Kendrick Lamar has repeatedly jabbed Drake on Dr. Dre’s new ‘Compton’ album. Since battle rap has now become a huge marketing strategy for major labels, it wouldn’t be a surprise to find subliminal shots aimed at Drake in songs “Darkside/Gone” and “Deep Water”.

Thisis50 quotes…

On the track ‘Darkside/Gone’, K Dot appears to make reference to Drake’s recent track ‘Energy’, rapping: “You scared of my heist now, But still I got enemies giving me energy I wanna fight now/ Subliminally sent to me all of this hate/ I thought I was holding the mic down”.

On ‘Deep Water’:

“M*********** know I started from the bottom” and “They liable to bury him, they nominated six to carry him/ They worrying him to death, but he’s no vegetarian/ The beef is on his breath, inheriting the drama better than/ A great white, n****, this is life in my aquarium”.

On the bridge before that verse, Lamar also says:

“Feel’s like you’re drowning, don’t you?/About a hundred miles down in that ocean/It’s over, shoulda never jumped in/If you can’t swim (if you can’t swim, if you can’t swim)/Oh my God, where’s a life guard when you need one?”


I’m not sure what to think about the drowning line. If anything Drake is happy that he destroyed Meek Mill in a rap battle and exposed him at his OVO festival. What do you think?
