Drake has been pummeling Meek Mill in their back and forth feud over the past couple weeks, but is he prepared to take on King Kendrick?

Last night Dr. Dre streamed Compton on Apple Music, his first full album in over 16 years. The album featured an army of heavy-hitting artists including Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Ice Cube, but Kendrick's contributions were undeniably more notable, taking two less-than-subtle shots at rapper/singer Drake.

Kendrick and Drake have been feuding off and on for about two years now, with Kendrick calling Drake out in his notorious 2013 "Control" verse, and Drake responding with "The Language" off his album Nothing Was the Same.

The beef has been dormant for a while now, but Kendrick unexpectedly erupted at Drake on two Compton tracks, "Darkside/Gone," and "Deep Water." Though he never explicitly calls out his name, all the references point directly at Drizzy.

Referencing Drake's track "Energy," Kendrick raps on "Darkside/Gone:" “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.”

His attack on "Deep Water" is significantly more pointed, with Kendrick specifically naming Drake's hit track "Started From The Bottom" as well as Drake's nickname, "Six God." “Motherfucker know I started from the bottom,” later in the track rapping, “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, nigga, this is life in my aquarium.”

Knowing Drake, his response will be quick and calculated, but this is no Weak Mill he's dealing with. He may want to think twice before taking on the King in a full on rap battle.
