Kendrick Lamar Disses Drake and J. Cole

Last night Metro Boomin' and Future dropped their joint album "We Don't Trust You [click here if you missed]." 

Fans are busy dissecting the lyrics and it looks like the bromance between Drake and Future is over after an uncredited verse from Kendrick Lamar dissing Drake and J. Cole was discovered on the track, "Like That..."

From Variety
Kendrick Lamar made an uncredited appearance on Future and Metro Boomin’s new album “We Don’t Trust You,” and with it delivered a series of apparently sharp, pointed words for Drake and J. Cole.
Lamar, whose fiery verse lights up “Like That,” steals the spotlight on the track, where he addresses a few bars from Drake and J. Cole’s “First Person Shooter” included on the former’s “For All the Dogs.” On that song, which released last year, J. Cole makes mention of the “big three,” referring to Lamar, Drake and himself: “Love when they argue the hardest emcee / Is it K. Dot? Is it Aubrey? Or me? / We the big three like we started a league.”
Drake retorted with a bar that could be interpreted as a shot at Lamar, excluding him from the “big three” designation: “Who the G.O.A.T.? Who you bxtches really rootin’ for? Like a kid that act bad from January to November, n—a, it’s just you and Cole.”
On “Like That,” Lamar directly references the rappers’ bars and comes gunning for them. “Yeah get up with me, fxxk sneak dissing / ‘First Person Shooter,’ I hope they came with three switches,” he raps, later adding, “Motherfxxk the big three, n—a, it’s just big me.”
Later in the verse, he comes for the quality of their music and says that his legacy will outlast their influence, comparing himself to Prince and his relationship to Michael Jackson. “Your best work is a light pack / N—a, Prince outlived Mike Jack / N—a, bum, ‘fore all your dogs get buried / That’s a K with all these nines, he gon’ see Pet Sematary.”
