Undoubtedly Drake and Kendrick Lamar are the créme de la créme when it comes to modern day rap and music in general. So the rivalry was something that the media and the public immediately saw in that fact alone. In fact the rappers applaud each other in times of defeat for the one and success for the other.
Kendrick's recently released "DAMN." shot right at the Billboard's Nr.1 Spot. The Album sold 603.000 units in the first week and smoked the sales figures of Drake "More Life" (505.000 unit). Drizzy's project was released earlier this year in March.
But the good sportsman that he is, Drake took it upon himself to speak out on the performance of Kendrick's album. He commented on IG "So happy to see our music moving!!".
So no animosity after all. Just positivity and good music. What more you want?!
