Living in the limelight means you’re bound to have to contend with celebrities and A-listers – but not all of them spark good relationships.

This is believed to be what happened between Drake and Kendrick Lamar – who will be making headlines for the Glastonbury festival on Sunday, June 26.

While the duo has dominated the hip-hop game for the best part of the past decade, they also have a discreetly hostile relationship.

The problems between the pair initially began in 2013 with Kendrick’s song Control – when Drake reportedly offended a sentence.

On the track, Kendrick jostled his competitors, including the likes of Mac Miller, Tyler, Meek Mill and Drizzy.

He raps, “I love you all but I try to kill you n *****”.

This made up the starting point for most of his beef now.

While it was initially seen as a compliment, Drake – whose real name is Aubrey Drake Graham – was not pleased with his inclusion.

In 2013, he told Billboard, “It just sounds like an ambitious thought to me.

“That’s all,” he added.

“I know well and well that Kendrick didn’t kill me, on any platform.”

At the BET Awards, Kendrick later got to know Drake by referencing his album Nothing Has Been The Same.

“Yeah and nothing’s been the same since they dropped ‘Control’, and stuffed a sensitive rapper back in his pajamas,” he exasperated.

Drake later admitted to the feud and reflected on the situation in an interview with Vibe.

“I never said that he [Kendrick] a bad guy [or] I don’t like him,” he said.

“I think he’s a genius in his own right, but I also stand my ground when I should.

“And with that comes another step, where I then have to realize that I’m being baited and I’m not going to fall.”

In 2014, Lamar finally addressed the situation directly – and referred to Drake as “the kid with motormouth” in the hit Language hit – before saying, “Let’s end our friendship, honey, I’d rather die a me.”

Over the course of the years, the pair have shot each other repeatedly over their songs as they made savage digs at each other.

Allegedly, their rivalry eventually culminated when they engaged in a verbal confrontation – which was captured on camera – however, their manager allegedly destroyed the tape. .

Although the two have stopped exchanging insults in recent years, the actual feud is still very large.

In November 2021, rapper Kanye West confirmed that the beef between the two was still burning bright.

Kendrick will take to the stage at the Glastonbury festival this Sunday to make a splash on the iconic stage.

He’s one of four titles set to take the stage alongside the likes of Diana Ross, Paul McCartney and Billie Eilish – who made history as the youngest title ever of program.

After being canceled due to Covid-19 in both 2020 and 2021, the iconic festival will make a long-awaited return from June 22 to 26.
