Cali Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar is not afraid of getting into a scuffle or two with his fellow hip-hop peers.

Just months ago, a verse from a Big Sean song called “Control” was released in which featured Lamar called out his competition for falling behind him in skill, lyrical finesse and overall passion.

Lamar ignited a friendly (maybe) fire of competition that had been absent from the genre for many years. Now Lamar is shooting hits at Drake, who just released his highly anticipated album, Nothing Was The Same. In a BET Awards ad clip, Lamar is seen and heard delivering a cypher, freestyle verse that goes like this: 

And nothing's been the same since they dropped 'Control'
And tucked a sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes
Ha-ha, jokes on you. High-five, I’m bullet proof.

Although Kendrick doesn’t call out Drake by his name, many have speculated that the “sensitive rapper” he speaks of is in fact the Toronto crooner, who basically owns and invented the term “sensitive rapper”.

Drake bring his "Would You Like A Tour" show to Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center on Saturday, October 19 along with special guests Miguel and Future. Tickets are available here.
