Kendrick Lamar may have just started a lyrical showdown.

Kendrick Lamar is easily one of the best rappers to ever live. Overall, he has delivered classic project after classic project. One could argue that every single album he has ever dropped is a classic. Sure, Mr. Morale got a bad wrap at first, but it is easily one of his most personal albums to date. Unfortunately, despite all of his talent, fans have begun underestimating Kendrick. There have been all sorts of conversations about how Cole is a better rapper right now, and that Drake could beat him in a rap battle. The discourse has been relentless, however, it appears as though Kendrick has been paying attention.

We know this because Kendrick is featured on the new Future and Metro Boomin project, We Don't Trust You. Lamar appears on "Like That" and he makes the most of his appearance. "Fuck sneak dissin', first person shooter, I hope they came with three switches," he begins, which appears to be a reference to Drake and J. Cole's hit song, "First Person Shooter. Subsequently, he says "Motherfuck the big three, n***a, it's just big me." Of course, this speaks to how some believe rap has a big three right now, that consists of Cole, Drake, and Kendrick.

"And your best work is a light pack/N***a, Prince outlived Mike Jack'/N***a, bum, 'fore all your dogs gettin' buried/That's a K with all these nines, he gon' see Pet Sematary," Kendrick raps.
