The rap feud between Kendrick Lamar and Drake has officially come to an end, according to Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith. Kendrick, formerly signed to the label, refrained from responding after Drake’s recent release, signaling the conclusion of their lyrical sparring. Drake himself hinted at closure with an Instagram Story post on May 12, featuring an illustration of one warrior against many, captioned “Good times. Summer vibes up next.”

Although the battle appears to be over, the statistics from their solo diss tracks continue to accumulate. Depending on the perspective of fans, the conflict spanned either 40, 50, or 52 days. Kendrick’s involvement began with his verse on Future and Metro Boomin’s “Like That” on March 22, with Drake’s “The Heart Part 6” on May 5 marking its potential end after no response from Kendrick. However, Top Dawg announced the battle’s conclusion on May 10, leading to a 50-day duration. Drake’s May 12 post extends it to 52 days.

The impact of their diss tracks is evident in chart rankings and streaming numbers. Drake’s “Push Ups” was the first solo diss track to enter the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at No. 17 and spending two weeks on the chart. Kendrick’s “Not Like Us” received overwhelming praise, breaking Spotify records previously held by Drake and gaining significant streams.

The question remains: is this beef truly settled? The reception of their next releases will reveal whether the conflict continues or concludes. Until then, fans can reflect on the milestones and achievements driven by Kendrick Lamar and Drake’s lyrical showdown.
