  • Jack Dorsey seems to support Kendrick Lamar’s latest disses on Canadian rapper Drake.
  • The former Twitter CEO liked a post on X calling “Euphoria” a “top-10 diss track.”
  • Dorsey’s support for Lamar goes back years — he even appeared in one of Lamar’s music videos.

The beef between Kendrick Lamar and Drake has been filled with unexpected characters, including pop sensation Taylor Swift and long-dead legend Tupac Shakur.

Now, Twitter and Block cofounder Jack Dorsey is weighing in — and it appears that he’s got “PRIDE” for Kung Fu Kenny.

After a back-and-forth of three diss tracks between Lamar and Drake, Lamar released two songs this week. “Euphoria” dropped on Tuesday, and “6:16 in LA” dropped on Friday.

Both of Lamar’s tracks received approval from super-fan Dorsey, who has recently liked both new and old posts on X and praised the Compton rapper.


“I will give people a couple weeks to realize Kendrick dropped a top-10 diss track of all time,” one post Dorsey liked from Wednesday said.

The former CEO also replied Friday with a heart emoji to an old 2011 Lamar post advertising a Toronto concert on June 16. Toronto is Drake’s home city, and some fans have speculated that the “6:16” in Lamar’s latest diss references this post.

Dorsey didn’t become a fan overnight. The former Twitter CEO has been a consistent supporter of Lamar’s art. In 2015, Dorsey posted a video at a Lamar concert calling the rapper “the greatest.”

He’s also praised many of Lamar’s records, including the Pulitzer-prize-winning “Damn” and his pandemic record “Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers.”


“this is an opera. @kendricklamar is a poet and a teacher. I learn something new each listen…and I can’t listen to anything else. constant spin,” Dorsey said of the 2022 album.

At one point, Dorsey even toyed with the idea of Lamar becoming a potential Twitter board member in 2016, Vox reported.

Lamar reciprocated the love by bringing Dorsey on for 2022 music video for the song “Count Me Out.” Dorsey makes a quick cameo by sharing a toast with Lamar and venture capitalist Aviv Nevo.

Lamar also worked with Dorsey’s fintech company Block and Ticketmaster to offer fans early access tickets for his 2022 Big Steppers tour, Quartz reported.


Dorsey isn’t the only unlikely character outside the music world to chime in on Drake and Lamar’s ongoing saga.

Actor Uma Thurman nodded to Drake in April through an Instagram post featuring an image of her costume in Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill: Volume 1.” In the film, Thurman played the katana-wielding, revenge-seeking “Bride.”

“Need this? @champagnepapi,” Thurman wrote as a caption in her story.

On Lamar’s side, iconic soul singer Al Green approved of his latest track, which uses a sample of Green’s “What A Wonderful Thing Love Is.”


It’s an embarrassing development for Drake, who was roasted and promptly asked to remove one of his diss tracks against Lamar last week after Shakur’s estate took issue with Drake’s use of AI to recreate Pac’s voice.

On Friday night, Drake released his latest response to Lamar: “Family Matters.” In the 7-minute track, Drake mentions Lamar’s longtime fiancée, Whitney Alford, and goes after Rick Ross, J. Cole, and The Weeknd.

Dorsey and spokespeople for Drake and Lamar did not respond to a request for comment from Business Insider.
