Kendrick Lamar has achieved yet another professional milestone because of the popularity of his diss verse against Drake and J. Cole

The song “Like That” by Future and Metro Boomin, featuring K.Dot, shot to the top of the Hot 100 songs chart on Monday, April 1, according to a report from Billboard. The album itself, WE DON’T TRUST YOU, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, and the viral smash is just one of five songs from the album to make its debut in the Hot 100’s top 10.

Throughout his career, Kendrick has topped the Hot 100 chart twice because to his features on Taylor Swift’s songs “Bad Blood” (2015) and “Humble” (2017).

The former TDE rapper takes several shots on the song. First, he mentions Drizzy and Cole’s No. 1 record, “First Person Shooter,” and accuses them of being “sneak dissin.”

“Yeah, come on up with me/ Fuck first-person shooter/ I hope they brought three switches,” he raps.

The Compton native then makes a blatant allusion to “the big three,” which are widely believed to be Drake, J. Cole, and himself, so establishing his dominance in the rap game.

Additionally, he suggests that his work will outlive both of their catalogues by comparing himself to Prince and the others to Michael Jackson.

“Do you think I won’t forget where I am? I still have PTSD. N-gga, it’s just big me. Muthafuck the big three. What? “N-gga, Prince outlived Mike Jack. I really like that. Your best work is a light pack,” he diss

The 36-year-old ends the song with a reference to Stephen King’s 1983 novel Pet Sematary and Drake’s 2023 album For All the Dogs: “N-gga, bum, ‘fore all your dogs gettin’ buried/ That’s a K with all these nines, he gon’ see Pet Sematary.”
