Naomi Osaka Shares Her View on Kendrick Lamar and Drake's Beef

Naomi Osaka and Coco Gauff, who shared their views on who would win the rivalry at the Italian Open. The long-standing rap rivalry between Kendrick Lamar and Drake appears to have simmered down after a back-and-forth exchange of nine diss tracks.

On Wednesday, four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka offered her perspective on the highly publicized feud between Lamar and Drake. Despite describing herself as a “pacifist” in the conflict, the 26-year-old seemed to lean towards Kendrick.

“I’m a pacifist. I’m a neutral party,” Naomi Osaka stated. However, she couldn’t help but express admiration for Kendrick’s latest track. “That last song is amazing, and I played it walking onto the court. Currently, I think Kendrick’s doing a good job.”

Gauff, after winning against Magdalena Freçh at Foro Italico, also shared her stance on the feud, echoing several of Osaka’s points.

“I knew you were going to ask me this because you asked Naomi,” Gauff remarked. “To be honest, yeah, I like Kendrick’s songs more. Yeah, I think pretty much everybody I know is leaning towards him. I do like Drake as an artist, as well.

But, yeah, as far as the rap battle that’s going on, the rap beef, I think definitely Kendrick is winning.”

Gauff sided with Kendrick, citing an additional reason for her choice.

“Also, Drake dissed Serena [Williams], so I have to go with Kendrick,” she added. “Kendrick defended her, so yeah, I have to go with him.”

In Kendrick’s “Not Like Us” diss track released on May 4, he warned Drake to “not speak on Serena.”

The feud between the two rappers ignited with Drake’s intense “Push Ups,” countered by Lamar’s powerful “Taylor Made Freestyle.” Lamar then followed up with “Euphoria” and “6:16 in LA,” making his stance against Drake clear.

Drake retaliated with “Family Matters,” prompting a swift reply from Lamar with “Meet the Grahams.” The feud reached its peak as Lamar released “Not Like Us” shortly after. However, their rap beef seemed to conclude after Drake dropped “The Heart Part 6.”
