Drake has replied to Kendrick Lamar‘s brutal ‘Euphoria’ diss track on his Instagram stories.

Last night, Lamar released the six-minute diss track against the rapper, calling him a “master manipulator” and questioning his abilities as a father amongst other accusations. It is the latest response in a feud ignited by Lamar, who hit out against Drake and J. Cole in his guest verse on Future and Metro Boomin‘s ‘Like That’ in March.

Now, the Canadian rapper has acknowledged the diss on his social media. He seemed to mock Lamar’s lyrics: “I’m the biggest hater / I hate the way that you walk, the way that you talk, I hate the way that you dress / I hate the way that you sneak diss, if I catch flight, it’s gon’ be direct” with a scene from cult romcom 10 Things I Hate About You.

In the original scene, Kat (Julia Stiles) reads out her poem about Patrick (Heath Ledger), which begins: “I hate the way you talk to me and the way you cut your hair / I hate the way you drive my car, I hate it when you stare”. The poem eventually reveals her true romantic feelings for Patrick: But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you / Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.”


As a nod to the poem’s intentions, Drake captioned the scene with a broken heart and winky face emoji. See his response down below:

In the aftermath of the ‘Like That’ verse, Lamar, Drake and Cole have now all traded bars with each other.


Cole initially responded with his track ‘Might Delete Later‘ on his surprise album, but later apologised for it and pulled it from streaming, announcing the news in a three-minute speech at one of his shows: “I just dropped a new album right? I’m so proud of that project, except for one part. It’s one part of that shit that makes me feel like ‘Man, that’s the lamest shit I ever did in my fucking life, right?’”

Meanwhile, Drake hit back at Lamar with two disses, ‘Push Ups‘ and ‘Taylor Made Freestyle’. However, he had to remove the latter diss due to its use of AI-generated Tupac vocals after late rapper’s estate threatened to file a lawsuit.

Other musicians have since waded into the debate: Kanye West dropped his own remix of ‘Like That’, comedian Munya Chawawa released his own parody Lamar diss track and George The Poet called Lamar “a non-revolutionary cosplaying as a revolutionary”.
