Over a year before Kendrick Lamar released his breakthrough debut album good kid, m.A.A.d city, Drake featured both him and A$AP Rocky on his Club Paradise Tour, when they were both relatively unknown by mainstream audiences. Following the tour, Drake further helped Kendrick by not just featuring him on Take Care, but essentially giving him his own song on the album. After that, Drake also lent a verse to Kendrick for that debut album. The two remained friends over the course of the following years, until Drake was mentioned, amongst others, by Kendrick in his now infamous verse on Big Sean's song "Control."  In interviews Drake has offered a handful of responses to the verse, all walking a fine line between compliment and insult. Drake seemed to formally reply to Kendrick on "The Language," which was featured on his recently released album Nothing Was The Same, rapping: "I don't know why they been lying but your shit is not that inspiring... Fuck any nigga that's talkin' that shit just to get a reaction. Fuck going platinum, I looked at my wrist and it's already platinum. I am the kid with the motor mouth. I am the one you should worry about. I don't know who you're referring to, who is this nigga you heard about." As we previously reported, the annual BET Hip Hop Awards were recently filmed along with the always anticipated group cyphers. Although the awards will not air until the 15th, AllHipHop.com just released a 15 second clip of the TDE cypher which features Kenrick Lamar firing direct shots at Drake. In the snippet, Kendrick raps: "Nothing's been the same since they dropped 'Control' / And tucked the sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes," Kendrick Lamar says in his cypher verse. "Ha-ha, jokes on you / High-five, I'm bullet proof / Your shits will never penetrate / Pin the tail on the donkey, boy, you've been a fake." While Kendrick does not mention Drake by name, he does mention his album title Nothing Was The Same. He also references the commonly made claim that Drake is a "sensitive rapper." It's reported that Kendrick's verse in the cypher is much longer than anyone else's. Unless the full cypher eventually leaks, we'll be glued to our TV's on the 15th to hear what else he has to say.
