Kendrick Lamar's Reaction to Drake's 'Family Matters' Revealed by JasonMartin

Renowned West Coast artist Jason Martin, formerly known as Problem, has unveiled the swift and strategic reaction of Kendrick Lamar to Drake's diss track "Family Matters" in the latest episode of the Bootleg Kev podcast. 

In the promotion of his upcoming joint album with DJ Quik, Jason provided Bootleg Kev with exclusive insights into Kendrick's immediate response when the diss track was released in May. 

Problem shared: 

I’m giving you some real insight. You’re hearing this first, Drake dropped ‘Family Matters,’ and I texted Kendrick, like, ‘This ain’t it. Man, it’s time to step on his head.’ He replied, ‘Say less.’

Problem continued to reveal the behind-the-scenes story: 

I thought it wasn’t anything serious. I went to the bathroom and when I came back, the song ‘Meet the Grahams’ was already uploaded. I was like, ‘Wait, wait, wait!’

"Meet The Grahams” is Kendrick’s direct response to Drake’s “Family Matters.” 

In this track, the Pulitzer Prize winner addresses Drake’s immediate family members individually over an eerie production. 

The song was released within the same hour as “Family Matters” to shift the focus away from the Drake diss track. 

Reflecting on Kendrick's strategic move, Problem recounted their conversation via text: 

I texted him (Kendrick), ‘You already dropped the song?!’ He responded, ‘I’ve been waiting for this guy to drop something.’ Drake didn’t even know what he was in for. He shot a video and everything. Sometimes, you just need to know what to do and what not to do.
