“One trick ponies”- New Beef? Drake Takes a Surprising Turn After Deleting All Diss Posts on Instagram

Published 06/09/2024, 9:15 PM EDT

The Kendrick Lamar-Drake feud once kept the energy in mainstream hip-hop on high alert. However, in the past few weeks, the conflict has cooled down, along with the chaos surrounding it. Despite their mic-drop moments and the ongoing debate over who took the crown, the current silence in the rap universe feels like the calm before the storm. This is especially true after Drizzy's cryptic social media activity and his latest post, suggesting that the Canadian rapper might be gearing up for another beef. 

Even though it is difficult to predict what he might actually be up to, Drake may still be basking in the afterglow of the recent feud.

Not long ago, the rap world became a hotbed of controversy when Drake and Kendrick Lamar aired their differences publicly. However, after a few weeks of silence, Drake surprised everyone on Wednesday, June 5, by deleting all his diss track posts aimed at Lamar. While Lamar's fanbase viewed this as a clear admission of defeat from Drizzy, the Canadian rapper has since sparked more intrigue with a recent post that reads, "Goats don’t worry about one trick ponies."

Drake recently posted a series of photos on Instagram, featuring himself in a t-shirt and baggy trousers with a long-sleeve shirt tied around his neck, accompanied by a fiery caption. It appears that Drake is clearly challenging the idea of his defeat, and his Instagram caption is a strong hint for fans of the feud. While it is difficult to determine if the caption signals something new in their rivalry, it could very well be Drake's subtle response to the ongoing debate about who is the greatest rapper of all time.

Whether Drake subtly referred to K-dot as the one-trick pony remains uncertain. Meanwhile, Lamar seems to be stepping back from the debate, making unexpected public appearances.

Kendrick Lamar has long been in the headlines due to his recent lyrical feud with Drake. However, he recently made a public appearance that suggested he might be moving on from the debate. Lamar surprised his fans with an overdue public appearance by delivering a speech at the 2024 graduation ceremony for Compton College in his hometown.

Amidst the changing atmosphere following the intense feud, Lamar imparted words of wisdom to the new graduates and expressed pride in his hometown during his speech. While Drake's recent social media activity may indicate his willingness to reconcile through philosophical reflection, Lamar also seems to be signaling an end to the feud, albeit in his own distinct manner.
