Drake has appeared to respond to Kendrick Lamar's recent diss about him.

Lamar shook the rap world last week by taking aim at both Drizzy and J. Cole on Future and Metro Boomin's new song, "Like That."

"Motherfuck the big three, it's just big me," Kendrick raps on the track, referencing the fact that he, Drizzy, and Cole are often referred to as rap music's current "Big 3."

Later in the track, Kendrick also makes reference to Drake's 2023 album "For All the Dogs," rapping: “Bum, ‘fore all your dogs gettin’ buried / That’s a K with all these nines, he gon’ see Pet Sematary."

On Sunday, two days after the release of "Like That," Drake made a defiant speech during a performance in Sunrise, Florida.

Addressing the crowd, the 6 God said: “A lot of people ask me how I’m feeling, I’ma let you know I’m feeling. The same way I’m feeling is the same way I want you to walk out this building tonight."

"I got my fucking head up high, my back straight, I’m 10 fucking toes down in Florida and anywhere else I go,” he went on. "And I know that no matter what, there’s not a n**** on this Earth that could ever fuck with me in my life!”

Kendrick's decision to take shots at Drake and Cole is likely a response to Cole namedropping him on his and Drizzy's "First Person Shooter."

“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," Cole raps on the track, which was released back in October and made it to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The Dreamville star has yet to respond to Kendrick's "Like That" verse.
