VIBE Versus: Drake Vs. Kendrick Lamar (In Spanish)

Features

While Sunday’s Grammy Awards has positioned Kendrick Lamar aside Macklemore as hip-hop’s biggest critical darling, we’re still excited about his simmering rivalry with Drake.

The good kid from Toronto has been keeping busy by dropping remixes (still waiting on that Wu-Tang track), guest verses and his own loosies (see: “Trophies,” “We Made It”). Not to mention his hilarious appearance on SNL. His latest delivery comes on bachata star Romeo Santos’ new single, “Odio,” on which Drake sings in Spanish.

Drake ain’t the only popular rapper to switch his native tongue to Español. Kendrick Lamar had us going crazy with his loco flow on Schoolboy Q’s 2013 single “Collard Greens.” Both K. Dot and Drizzy are clearly talented in multiple languages, but which lyricist can rock Spanish flows best: Señor Drake or Señor Kendrick?
