    Kendrick Lamar’s fiery verses on Future and Metro Boomin‘s track “Like That” have ignited a rap rivalry, propelling the song to number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

    The track, featured on their joint album “We Don’t Trust You” which also topped the Billboard 200, sees Lamar directly responding to claims of rap supremacy from Drake and J. Cole.

    On “First Person Shooter,” Drake and Cole had declared themselves the “big three” of rap. But on “Like That,” Lamar dismisses this, rapping “Motherfuck the big three, n—a, it’s just big me” and asserting his own dominance. Powered by 60 million streams and 5.6 million radio spins in its debut week, the explosive song has sparked a seismic shift in hip-hop.

    Four other tracks from “We Don’t Trust You” also cracked the Top 10, while the album itself moved 251,000 units, the biggest opening week of 2024 for any release. This cements Future and Metro Boomin’s status, marking Future’s second-largest and Metro’s biggest week ever. Lamar’s blistering guest verse has reignited a high-stakes rivalry over rap’s reigning king.
