Kendrick Lamar is keeping his foot on Drake‘s neck by dropping a second diss song aimed at his fierce rival.

Just days after releasing the explosive “Euphoria,” the Compton rapper shared a new song called “6:16 in LA” — a play on Drake’s timestamp song series — on his Instagram page on Friday (May 3).

Rapping over an Al Green sample, K. Dot fires off another barrage of shots at the 6 God, claiming that there are Judases among his disciples.

“Conspiracies about cash, dawg, that’s not even the leak/ Find the jewels like Kash Doll, I just need you to think/ Are you finally ready to play ‘Have you ever?,’ let’s see/ Have you ever thought that OVO is working for me?” he raps, responding to Drake’s claim on “Push Ups” that he was being extorted by his former label boss Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith.

“Fake bully, I hate bullies, you must be a terrible person/ Everyone inside your team is whispering that you deserve it/ Can’t Toosie Slide up out of this one, it’s just gonna resurface/ Every dog gotta have his day, now live in your purpose.”

Kendrick also accuses Drake of “harassing” people within his camp and trying to dig up dirt on him.

“It was fun until you started to put money in the streets/ They lost money ’cause they came back with no receipts/ I’m sorry that I live a boring life, I love peace/ But war ready if the world is ready to see you bleed,” he spits.

“The Elohim, K. T. W. know you can’t sleep/ These images trouble you, know the wires in your circle should puzzle you/ If you was street smart then you woulda caught that your entourage is only to hustle you.”

He continues: “A hundred n-ggas that you got on salary and 20 of ’em want you as a casualty/ And one of them is actually next to you, and two of them is practically tied to your lifestyle/ Just don’t got the audacity to tell you but let me tell you some game ’cause I can see you my little homie.

“You playing dirty with propaganda, it’ll blow up on you/ You playing nerdy with Zack Bia and Twitter bots, but your reality can’t hide behind Wi-Fi/ Your little mans is losing steam, they figured you out/ The forced opinions is not convincing, y’all need a new route/ It’s time that you look around on who’s around you/ Before you figure that you’re not alone, ask, ‘What Mike would do?’”

Kendrick even takes aim at Akademiks, who is not only a vocal Drake supporter but has served as the Toronto rapper’s unofficial mouthpiece throughout the feud.

“Yeah, somebody’s lying, I can see the vibes on Ak/ Even he looking compromised, lets peel the layers back,” he begins his second verse.

“6:16 in LA” mirrors Drake’s own strategy in the beef, serving as Kendrick Lamar’s second diss song without response.

Last month, the Her Loss hitmaker unleashed two tracks back to back: the aforementioned “Push Ups,” which also contained shots at Future, Metro Boomin, Rick Ross and The Weeknd, and “Taylor Made Freestyle.”

The latter featured AI-created vocals from two of Kendrick’s Hip Hop heroes, 2Pac and Snoop Dogg, but has since been taken down after a legal threat from the former’s estate.

While Kendrick — who has been criticized for his supposedly slow response time — has pipped Drake to the post this time around, the 6 God appears to be readying a response.

Following the release of “Euphoria,” Akademiks read out text messages from Drake on his Rumble channel earlier this week in which the rapper told him: “If you think this is fire, you have no idea what I got coming.”

He also apparently said: “See you soon.”
