Drake responds to the President choosing Kendrick Lamar as his rap battle winner 

The President of the United States ended the Drake vs Kendrick Lamar battle earlier this month. But Drake isn’t going down without a fight – as he bit back in rap to Barack Obama’s choice on Saturday.

The Canadian hip hop star, 29, released his first single off Views From The 6, which referenced the President’s decision.


‘Tell Obama that my verses are just like the whips that he in, they bulletproof,’ he defiantly raps on Summer Sixteen.

Obama was asked on January 15, during a You Tube Q&A: ‘If Drake and Kendrick Lamar got in a rap battle, who do you think would win?’


‘Gotta go with Kendrick,’ the President answered, ‘I’m just saying. I think Drake is an outstanding entertainer, but Kendrick, his lyrics — his last album was outstanding. Best album, I think, last year.’

Two weeks ago Kendrick paid a visit to the White House and shared an image alongside the President.


He captioned the black and white picture: ‘hood politics’, to describe their meeting to discuss how to improve inner-city communities.

Obama also previously nailed his colours to Kendrick’s mast in the feud between the two rap stars when he named Kendrick’s To Pimp A Butterfly track How Much a Dollar Cost as his favourite of 2015.

Drake is worth $100 million according to The Richest, dwarfing Kendrick’s $20 million fortune.
