Kendrick Lamar: I Would Be Fine If Me And Drake Were Not Friends
(AllHipHop News) Kendrick Lamar is "usually cool with the same n*ggas I'm rhyming with", however "this is Hip Hop and them n*ggas should know what time it is." In a recent interview for GQ's Man of the Year issue, Lamar let everyone know he's not fighting for his peer's friendship.
In the interview, Lamar spoke on the pair's meeting at the MTV Video Music Awards, a week after his "Control" verse was released and gave an update on their friendship:
[We're] Pretty cool. I mean, I would be okay if we weren't.
Lamar then stated that "we all peers" after admitting that Drake informed him that he took the "Control" verse as a diss.
Drake has mentioned that he has no immediate plans to work with his former collaborator and addressed the VMA run-in with Kendrick Lamar on The Angie Martinez Show in September:
It just wasn't real to me. I saw him after that and it was just like love, so it's like was that real or was that for the people? Those were harsh words, you can't just say that and see me like, 'Yeah, man, what's up,' pretending like nothing ever happened. That's not real
