Drake and Kendrick Lamar are two of the biggest rappers in the game right now and they are both enjoying huge success with their albums, More Life and Damn., respectively. You would think that there’s a heated rap rivalry going on between them, but apparently there isn’t one.
On Saturday (April 29), a photo surfaced of Drizzy saluting Kung Fu Kenny on his massive album sales for the past two weeks. Last week, Damn. moved a whopping 603,000 equivalent album units, beating Drake’s More Life‘s record-breaking first-week sales of 505,000 copies. Damn. is expected to retain its No. 1 position this week with an estimated 200,000 additional units.
In the pic, Drake was happy to see Lamar back atop of the charts again. “Amazing to see our music moving!!!” he wrote on an Instagram post by Elliott Wilson that shows a screen capture of the estimated final totals for next week’s albums chart (DAMN.‘s second week; More Life‘s sixth).
So clearly, there’s no real beef between Drizzy and K.Dot. Although the two rappers haven’t collaborated since “Poetic Justice” on K.Dot’s good kid, m.A.A.d City, Drake seems to be open for another collaboration by way of DJ Khaled. Check out the photo below.
If anyone can get these two rappers together on a track it’s DJ Khaled. Let’s hope he can make this happen. Another one.
Props to Drake for acknowledging Kendrick Lamar’s impressive run in the rap game so far.
