Kendrick is featured on "Darkside/Gone" and "Deep Water" off Compton. "Darkside/Gone" includes the TDE representative mentioning enemies giving him energy. On his song "Energy," Drake raps "I got enemies, got a lot of enemies. Got a lot of people tryna drain me of my energy."
You scared of my heist now. But still I got enemies giving me energy. I wanna fight now. Subliminals sending me all of this hate. I thought I was holding the mic down.

On "Deep Water," Kendrick can be heard saying, "They nominated six to carry him... the beef is on his breath." Drake refers to himself as the "6 God."
Once upon a time I shot a n*gga on accident. I tried to kill him, but I guess I needed more practice then. That's when I realized banging wasn't for everybody. Switch it up before my enemy or the sheriff got me.
They liable to bury him. They nominated six to carry him. They worry him to death but he no vegetarian. The beef is on his breath inheriting the drama better than a Great White. N*gga, this is life in my aquarium.

Both Kendrick and Drake have been suspected of sending subliminal shots at each other over the past two years. The verbal jousting began after K. Dot challenged his peers on Big Sean's "Control." The below-the-radar battle supposedly continued on with Drake's lines from “Sh!t (Remix)” and “Used To” as well as Kendrick’s contribution to “Pay For It.”
