Kendrick Lamar teased fans with an Instagram post of the Roman numeral IV Thursday, leading many to believe he was dropping his fourth album. Instead, what we got was a track titled “The Heart Part 4” and within it, lyrics referencing Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook’s feud.
As you probably have heard by now, Durant left Westbrook and the Thunder this past offseason to join the Warriors. Since then, there has been a subtle feud between the two, highlighted by a jawing-session during a game and some Instagram posts of cupcakes.
There’s the obvious reference to the basketball aspect of things, but if you’re into rap then you can also view this as a Drake diss. Kendrick and Drake have been subtly taking shots at one another for years, and this could be the latest case.
“I don’t think anybody’s ever seen that,” Thomas said, via NBA.com. “Continue to call time-outs, continue to foul when we’re up 15. But, I mean, it was obvious what they were trying to do – get him the most points possible. Hats off to him, though. He played a hell of a game.”
Booker added eight rebounds, six assists and three steals, but his efforts weren’t enough to lift the Suns to a win. The rest of the Suns players accounted for 50 points, and the Celtics earned a 130-120 victory. Still, the 22-51 Suns celebrated Booker’s historic night after the game, drawing ire from the Celtics’ Jae Crowder, who took to Instagram to throw shade on the Suns.
After Booker responded with the ol’ “You can’t guard me,” Crowder narrowed his attack to the Suns’ supporting cast in the photo, saying, “I was talking about them dudes New York Jets Cheap Jerseys around New Cheap Jerseys you. But I’ll see you next year.”
