Kendrick Lamar says he was “confused” when Drake and Kanye made up

The track appears on the TDE rapper’s new LP Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.

Father Time, which features Sampha on guest vocals, sees Kendrick Lamar name drop Drake and Kanye West, revealing that he was “confused” when the two made up. On the song, which reflects on “daddy issues“, he raps “When Kanye got back with Drake, I was slightly confused/ Guess I’m not as mature as I think, got some healin’ to do,” referring to Ye and Drake reconciling after years of animosity between them. The pair reunited and put their beef behind them last year, performing together at the Larry Hoover benefit concert in Los Angeles on 9 December 2021.

K-Dot and Drake also used to have some longstanding beef, stemming back to 2013 when he name dropped Drizzy in the track Control.

Naturally, users on Twitter were quick to react to the track.

Lamar released his long-anticipated new double-album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers today. The 18-track release features a slew of collaborators including Duval Timothy, Thundercat, Beth Gibbons – of Portishead renown – and Ghostface Killah.
