For quite some time now, rumors concerning a possible rift between Kendrick Lamar and Drake have circulated all across the internet and beyond. Now, in a new interview with ex-NFL athlete Marcellus Wiley, we're learning just how close we were to an all-out beef and verbal war between the two superstars. Speaking to Kelvin Washington for an interview for ESPN 710AM’s Max and Marcellus program, Marcellus Wiley reveals:
“I can’t say what I wanna say, but I’m gonna say it anyways because my contract is up and this might give me more money...All I know is there was a beef, and all I know is I was witness to when the beef would have ignited to proportions we have not seen since Ja Rule/50, maybe even Ice Cube/N.W.A. Like it went there. But that was destroyed from everyone’s property. That was destroyed, that interview, that moment was destroyed. That’s all I’m gonna say. But I was there and I heard the shots fired.”
According to Wiley, the potential beef stemmed made by one of the two artists (who Wiley refused to name) during an interview. Upon hearing the comment, that artist's management made sure that specific interview never hit the public.
