Amidst the ever-growing hip-hop war between artists like Ye (formerly Kanye West), Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and J. Cole, each passing day has been bringing in new updates of the feud. Recently, the world was left in a daze after Metro Boomin almost suddenly removed his post with the Atlanta rapper from his socials while fans were even more puzzled to find the remix of Lamar’s ‘Like That’ by Ye missing from YouTube.

Following the unforeseen developments, the ‘Donda’ rapper seems to have retreated to the arena with a fresh cover for his remix.

When Ye premiered his remix of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Like That’ first on Justin LaBoy’s The Download podcast, many fans wondered if the mix had the original trio’s approval. Though the doubts were soon put to rest after Metro Boomin publicly endorsed Ye, the skepticism once again caved in when the former unexpectedly took down the post from his socials accompanied by the latter’s sudden removal of the remix. However, a recent update shows that the artist has returned with a new cover for the remix that echoes the vibe of ‘Vultures 1’.

The cover, posted by GoodAssSub on X, features the silhouette of a goat, which speaks volumes about the mix itself. For concerned fans wondering if the rapper switched allegiances or if Metro Boomin withdrew support, this update offers reassurance that likely nothing has shifted. Nevertheless, with these consecutive developments, fan speculation has surged regarding the present status of the infamous feud and the equations the artists now share.
