Ye claims supremacy over Kendrick Lamar and Drake in fiery social media post



In a bold move, Ye highlights his musical achievements and declares himself the only “GOAT” in the rap game

In an audacious display of confidence, Ye, previously known as Kanye West, has ignited the rap community with a provocative Instagram post. Claiming superiority over contemporaries Kendrick Lamar and Drake, Ye has not shied away from reminding the world of his indelible mark on the music industry. On March 28, Ye took to social media to assert that he “washed” Kendrick Lamar in their collaboration “No More Parties in L.A.” from The Life of Pablo album and did the same to Drake during their 2021 Larry Hoover Benefit concert.

West’s bold assertions extend beyond personal feats, as he also credited himself with Adidas’s resurgence and subsequent cultural fallout. The rap mogul’s post is a comprehensive self-tribute to his career, stating, “I made Yeezus, Dark Fantasy, Pablo, Graduation, Throne, 808s,” before reinforcing his resilience in the face of cancellation and controversy, boasting about his return to the chart’s summit.

This statement comes at a time when rumours are swirling around the release of Vultures 2, anticipated for May 3. The project follows the success of its predecessor, which saw significant commercial achievement. Furthermore, Ye’s timing is particularly intriguing, coming on the heels of Kendrick Lamar’s veiled jabs at Drake and J. Cole in the track “Like That” by Future & Metro Boomin. Ye’s decision to publicly place himself above Lamar and Drake, amid their own rivalry, underscores his belief in his unparalleled status in the music world.

As the rap community buzzes with reactions, debates over the true “GOAT” of rap are sure to intensify. Ye’s uncompromising stance and the timing of his declaration hint at more than just self-promotion; it’s a strategic positioning ahead of his next musical chapter. Whether this will lead to responses from Kendrick Lamar, and Drake, or further ignite rap feuds remains to be seen, but one thing is clear: Ye remains a master at capturing the spotlight.
