Was Kendrick Lamar Mocking Drake's Hotline Bling Moves? Fans Suspect

Fans Suspect Kendrick Lamar Mocked Drake's Hotline Bling Dance After 'A Minorrrrr'

Fans Speculate Kendrick Lamar Mocked Drake's "Hotline Bling" Dance During Diss Track Performance

Fans are buzzing with speculation after Kendrick Lamar's recent performance, where many believe he was mocking Drake's iconic "Hotline Bling" dance while singing his Drake diss track, "Not Like Us," at his "Pop Out" concert in Los Angeles.

The incident occurred during a live show, where Kendrick not only mimicked the famous dance moves but also donned an outfit strikingly similar to Drake’s from the "Hotline Bling" music video. 

Interestingly, the outfit Kendrick wore was also a tribute to the late rapper Tupac Shakur, as Tupac had worn the same outfit during a show. 

Adding to the intrigue, Kendrick's two backup dancers wore outfits that closely resembled those of the women featured in Drake’s video.

Fans Believe Kendrick Lamar's Hotline Bling Dance Was Aimed at Drake:

This performance has reignited discussions about the longstanding tension between the two rap giants. 

The history of subtle digs and competitive spirit between Kendrick Lamar and Drake has been well-documented.

However, Kendrick’s choice to bring back Drake’s “Hotline Bling” dance moves and aesthetics, while dressed in an outfit reminiscent of 2Pac’s style, seemed like a deliberate move that fans quickly picked up on.

On social media, fans debated whether Kendrick’s actions were a playful homage or a pointed jab. Many argued that Kendrick was making a statement about originality in the rap game.

By combining elements of Drake's popular video with the legendary 2Pac's style, Kendrick appeared to be positioning himself as the bridge between the old school and the new school of hip-hop. 

This narrative fits with Kendrick’s often complex and layered approach to his artistry.

Kendrick's performance, especially his dance routine after the line "A Minorrrrr," was a highlight that sparked even more speculation. 

The dance moves, coupled with the matching outfits of his dancers, were almost too close to Drake’s original "Hotline Bling" video to be coincidental.

This incident highlights the competitive nature of hip-hop and the importance of originality and legacy within the genre. 

As always, the rap community remains engaged, waiting to see how Drake will respond to this latest provocations. Stay tuned to WhatsOnRap for updates as this story unfolds.
