Drake Disses Kendrick Lamar & Metro Boomin on His New “Push Ups” Single

Drake is a Canadian rapper and global rap superstar. Not too long ago, he released a highly anticipated diss track, “Push Ups,” a direct response to “Like That,” the collaborative Drake diss by Kendrick Lamar, Future, and Metro Boomin.

Drake – “Push Ups” Single

“How the f*** you big steppin’ with a size-seven men’s on? This the bark with the bite, ni**a, what’s up? I know my picture on the wall when y’all cook up. Extortion baby, whole career, you been shook up. ‘Cause Top told you, ‘Drop and give me fifty,’ like some push-ups, huh. Your last one bricked, you really not on sh*t. They make excuses for you ’cause they hate to see me lit. Pull your contract ’cause we gotta see the split. The way you doin’ splits, b*tch, your pants might rip.” – lyrics

“Push Ups” holds a deeper meaning than what meets the eye. The title could refer to a viral video of Kendrick Lamar performing push-ups. This reference sets the tone for the track, as Drake uses it to convey his determination and resilience in the face of adversity. He wastes no time addressing the shots taken at him, asserting his dominance and refusing to be silenced. “Ni**as really got me out here talkin’ like I’m 50,” Drake raps. “Ni**as really got me out here rappin’ what I’m livin’.” These lines serve as a powerful statement, showcasing Drake’s determination to rise above the criticism and prove his worth in the commercial battle rap arena.

Drake’s clever wordplay and lyrical prowess are on full display. He effortlessly weaves in references to his success and the impact he has had on the music industry. His response is laced with subtle jabs and witty comebacks. Drake skillfully navigates through the verses, showcasing his ability to effortlessly switch between introspection and bravado. While it’s evident that Drake is defending himself, he also takes the opportunity to reflect on his journey and the challenges he has faced along the way. Through his lyrics, he reminds his critics and fans alike that he is more than just a target for controversy.
