Lamar-Drake diss war inspires politicians around the world

The ongoing diss war between hip-hop stars Kendrick Lamar and Drake has captivated the entertainment world in the last week.

And many politicians have taken inspiration from the feuding rap titans, whose tracks have contained allegations of paedophilia and domestic abuse, with Lamar’s latest diss track Not Like Us appears providing particular inspiration.

Unsurprisingly, former US President Donald Trump has embraced a new way of spreading hate. The Orange One tweeted out the below to followers:

“Certified boogeyman, I’m the one to make us great again

Walk Joe down, whole time, I know he got some ho in him.


Closer to home Green Party leader and hip-hop aficionado Eamon Ryan has been spitting on polluters:

“Since 2011 I had the Greens jumpin’

You pollutas’ll get a wedgie, be flipped over your carbon emissions

Yeah, it’s all eyes on Green, and Ima send it up to Harris, ayy.”

Meanwhile the UK’s Conservative government has taken a predictably unimaginative approach, using their diss track to stoke further hatred against asylum seekers. The office of Prime Minister Rishi Sunak release the following

“They not like us, they not like us, they not like us

The Rwanda 6,000, go home, yo not wanted

they not like us, they not like us, they not like us.”

Lamar is believed to be unimpressed that politicians have co-opted his art and is now preparing several new diss tracks to roast the offenders. This situation looks set to rumble on.
