Jay Electronica seems to side with Drake over Kendrick Lamar in rap feud

May 6th, 2024

Jay Electronica has shared numerous cryptic tweets, suggesting that he supports Drake in his current feud against Kendrick Lamar.

Over the past month, Lamar and Drake have been trading blows over a constant back-and-forth of diss tracks. The latest escalation came over the weekend with ‘Meet the Grahams’, when Lamar alleged that Drake is a sexual predator with a secret daughter.

Then, Drake dropped his new diss track ‘The Heart Part 6’, on which the Canadian rapper suggested that Lamar’s disses are based on false information fed to him by Drake’s team.

Weeks ago, Louisiana rapper Jay Electronica shared two tweets which fans think is his way of saying he supports Drake in the feud. In one, he wrote, “Good Night and Good Luck” – which could be him referring to the 37-year-old’s first-ever diss track of the same name. He released the song in 2008 as part of his rap battle with fellow Canadian rapper Aristo.

He also tweeted a clip from the 1982 film First Blood from the Rambo film franchise. In the scene, Rambo’s ex-commander warns the local sheriff not to challenge the Vietnam veteran. “Are you telling me that 200 men against your boy is a no-win situation?,” the sheriff asks, to which the ex-commander states: “If you send that many don’t forget one thing. A good supply of body bags.” This could be Electronica alluding to Drake’s lyrics on ‘Push Ups’: “What the fuck is this, a 20-v-1, n***a?”

Last week, in a deleted tweet (per HipHopDX), the 47-year-old posted a link to Drake’s 2021 song ‘Champagne Poetry’ from his sixth album ‘Certified Lover Boy’.

Electronica has a history of sending jabs at Lamar. Back in 2016, the New Orleans native called him out on ‘#TBE The Curse of Mayweather’, rapping: “How you gon’ compare the king to a gnome?/ How you gon’ compare Jango Fett to the clones? […] ‘He’s got eleven Grammy nominations, y’all not equal’/ Man, fuck these white people!”

This led K-Dot’s longtime manager and former TDE executive Dave Free to call Electronica a “desperate housewife” who was “still mad about ‘Control’”.

Free is referring to ‘Control’, the 2013 song from Big Sean’s second album ‘Hall Of Fame’ on which both Electronica and Lamar feature. It is now a notorious moment in rap history where the Compton rapper name-checked the top rappers at the time and said they were no match for him: “I got love for you all, but I’m tryna murder you n****s.”

Lamar called out Electronica and Drake as well as other juggernauts such as Eminem, André 3000, Wale, Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Tyler, the Creator and Mac Miller.

Many say Kung-Fu Kenny’s verse was the catalyst for his feuds with Big Sean, J. Cole and Drake since the four rappers have sent indirect shots at one another for the past decade.

Drake replied to Lamar’s ‘Control’ verse in an interview with Billboard, saying, “I know good and well that Kendrick’s not murdering me, at all, in any platform.”

In other news, Lamar boosted the business of a Toronto Chinese restaurant called New Ho King after he name-checked them on ‘Euphoria’.
