Kendrick Lamar’s ‘family ties’ single was directed to Drake and not Kanye, according to Joe Budden.
The past week was buzzing about the release of Kanye’s Donda album. It’s getting even hotter this week as Drake is set to release Certified Lover Boy (CLB).
But it’s not just the albums, Baby Keem and Kendrick Lamar’s single ”Family Ties” is also making waves on the hip hop scene. Some of the celebrities who have showered praise on the track include Lebron James, Lloyd Banks, and Timbaland. Fans too are over the moon, not just because of the song but because Kendrick drops the name Kanye in it.
Towards the end of the song Kendrick goes like “Kanye changed his life but me, I’m still an old school Gemini.” But that was after he raps “Smoking on top five. MotherF*** that album F*** that single. Burn that hard drive.”
Fans have assumed that Kendrick was throwing shade at Ye and his antic-filled album release. However, Joe Budden has a surprising take on what Lamar had to say on Family ties.
According to Joe Budden, Ye is the least of Kendrick Lamar’s worries. Instead, he is fixated on Drake’s Certified Lover Boy album which is set to release on Friday.
Joe Budden argues that when Kendrick mentions “smoking on top five”, he has a hunch that it has something to do with J Cole and Drake who are the most consistent when it comes to top-fives.
Joe Budden thinks that Drake and Kendrick are going head to head-what rap enthusiasts have been waiting for for years. If it happens, then this will be the rap Armageddon. And nobody can save it.
At the moment, Kanye and Drake’s albums are already neck to neck. In Toronto, Kanye bought all billboards around Drake’s CLB billboard and advertised his album ‘Donda.’
