Just when we thought Kendrick Lamar's beef with Drake couldn't get any worse, things escalated to new heights this past weekend. 

Drake has been forced to address claims Kendrick made in one of his recent diss songs about him allegedly liking underage girls.

"Say, Drake, I hear you like 'em young / You better not ever go to cell block one," Kendrick raps in 'Not Like Us'.

He adds in another verse: "Why you trollin’ like a b****? Ain’t you tired? / Tryna strike a chord and it’s probably A-Minor.”

'Not Like Us' was one of four diss songs Kendrick has released about Drake. It was released less than a day after he dropped 'Meet The Grahams', which also accused Drake of being a paedophile. 

"And we gotta raise our daughters knowin' there's predators like him lurkin'," Kendrick raps. 

Drake clapped back in his latest song, 'The Heart Part 6'.  

"Just for clarity, I feel disgusted, I'm too respected / If I was f***ing young girls, I promise I'd have been arrested / I'm way too famous for this s**t you just suggested."

Drake and Kendrick have released several diss tracks directed at each other since March, dropping several shocking allegations about each other in the process.

In 'Meet the Grahams', Kendrick accuses Drake of fathering a daughter that he has been hiding from the public.

Dear baby girl
I'm sorry that your father not active inside your world
He don't commit to much but his music, yeah, that's for sure
He a narcissist, misogynist, livin' inside his songs
Try destroy families rather than takin' care of his own
Should be teachin' you time tables or watchin' Frozen with you
Or at your eleventh birthday singin' poems with you

Drake claims in 'The Heart Part 6' that his team feed Kendrick false information about him having a mystery daughter. 

'We plotted for a week, and then we fed you the information / A daughter that's eleven years old, I bet he takes it / We thought about givin' a fake name or a destination / But you so thirsty, you not concerned with investigation," the 'God's Plan' hitmaker raps.

This isn't the first time Drake has been accused of hiding a child. Rapper Pusha T famously revealed in 2018 that Drake had a son with a French porn star. 

"Adonis is your son / And he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that's real / Love that baby, respect that girl / Forget she's a pornstar, let her be your world," Pusha T rapped. 

Drake would later confess in 'Emotionless': "I wasn't hidin' my kid from the world / I was hidin' the world from my kid / From empty souls who just wake up and look to debate / Until you starin' at your seed, you can never relate."

In 2020, Drake shared the first image of his son Adonis.

It seems like there is no end in sight to Drake and Kendrick's beef. 

Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, and Taylor Swift - whom Kendrick collaborated with on 'Bad Blood' - have been dragged into the drama. Their names were referenced in some of the lyrics of Drake's songs. 

All we have to say is: What tea will these two rappers spill about each other next?
