Kendrick is seeing some financial gain from his recent beef.

Kendrick Lamar is easily one of the biggest artists in the world, and the last couple of weeks have certainly proved that. Overall, it can be easy to forget Lamar's chart dominance as he takes a decent amount of time between projects. However, throughout his beef with Drake, he has been dropping a plethora of songs that are doing extremely well on the charts. For instance, "Not Like Us" is the biggest song in the world. Furthermore, "Euphoria" is currently third on the charts, with "Meet The Grahams" coming at number 12.

Throughout the past week, "Not Like Us" has broken a plethora of Spotify streaming records. It broke some of Drake's longstanding records, and it was also the fastest track to hit over 100 million streams. Despite this being a diss record, it has a ton of replayability, with Lamar beating Drizzy at his very own game. According to DJ Akademiks, this song has certainly led to a lot of financial success for Kendrick. In fact, in the first week of its release, "Not Like Us" has brought in a total of $280K. Of course, this is an estimation based on sales numbers and the fact that the song is already eligible for Gold certification.
