Kendrick Lamar dissing J. Cole and Drake on  Future and Metro Boomin's song "Like That" had all kinds of effects.

It triggered a response from Cole on "7 Minute Drill," then an apology.

But there's more. According to Mal of the New Rory & Mal podcast, Drake was reluctant to perform with Cole at the North Carolina spitter's Dreamville Festival last weekend because of "Like That."


 

"He might get mad at me for talking about it, but he knows he’s my n*gga. I asked Drake one question: I said, 'Yo, you going to Dream Fest this weekend?'" said Mal on his show. "And he gave me an answer that was kind of weird Friday night hearing it, but Sunday night it made all the sense in the world. He says, ‘I don’t know, should I? ‘Cause it’s weird right now. Are we performing the record? Can we ever perform 'First Person Shooter?'"

"He has to change the bar now," he continued. "He has to sh*t on Kendrick now. 'So we gonna sh*t on Kendrick every time we do the record? Nobody wants to hear us together unless we dissing Kendrick.'"

Remember, Cole praised K Dot on "First Person Shooter," so the song will forever hit differently.

"Love when they argue the hardest MC / Is it K. Dot? Is it Aubrey? Or me?/ We the big three like we started a league, but right now, I feel like Muhammad Ali," says Cole on the track.
