The Kendrick Lamar and Drake beef is now sectioning itself off into different camps, and we now have the first official side quest.

It looks like the Kendrick Lamar and Drake beef might get a lot of rappers more confrontational this year, and we have our first example of a side quest in this feud. Moreover, The Game just dropped a diss track against Rick Ross titled "Freeway's Revenge," and it's a pretty scathing takedown of a lot of his qualities, character, history, and approaches. Fans were quick to react, either praising the song for its lyrical density, clowning both MCs for still trying to get attention of a much bigger battle, or criticizing the Los Angeles rapper's approach to taking down the Maybach Music Group boss.

Furthermore, we know that The Game and Rick Ross apparently had issues before this, although we didn't know whether the former was just defending Drake from the latter's trolling. While there are references to Drizzy's beef with Kendrick Lamar on "Freeway's Revenge," they're mostly used for bar work and not as any continuations of that particular back-and-forth. He remains focused on his target and doesn't hold back, calling into question his street credibility and health. The Documentary lyricist even hilariously imitates Rozay at one point and makes fun of his constant trolling.

At least fans now know that this went deeper than just The Game supporting Drake against Kendrick Lamar, although that definitely seems to be the origin of all this. However, a lot of fans had differing opinions on whether or not this was a good look for this specific beef. It's fair to say that the timing of it also affected its perception, since some folks want to avoid anything related to beef right now after such a hectic past week. But at the end of the day, some stories are just too spicy to pass up. Check out more reactions to "Freeway's Revenge" down below.
