Drake unveils new song using AI to imitate 2Pac and Snoop Dogg

Over the weekend, Drake dropped two new tracks, "Taylor Made Freestyle" and "Push Ups".

Both songs serve as a response to Kendrick Lamar's diss on "Like That", his collaboration with Future and Metro Boomin, which also saw him take shots at J. Cole.

J. Cole expressed his regret over retaliating with the track, "7 Minute Drill", whilst performing at Dreamville Music Festival. He publicly offered Lamar a chance to "take your best shot" and call him out on his retaliation: "I pray that y’all forgive a n***a for the misstep and I can get back to my true path cause I ain’t gonna lie to y’all the past two days felt terrible," he concluded.

Snoop Dogg shared a video to his Instagram account, acknowledging his part in "Taylor Made Freestyle", and he said his phone had been blowing up. “They did what? When? How? Are you sure?," he says into the camera. Snoop features on Lamar's third studio album, To Pimp A Butterfly, on the track "Institutionalised". Elsewhere on the album, Lamar uses archival audio of 2Pac on the track "Mortal Man" taken from a 1994 interview with the Swedish radio show P3 Soul, to mimic a conversation with 2Pac about how he came up in the rap game and how you can be broken down by a system that is out to get you.

Later in the song, he shouts out Lamar's "Bad Blood" collaborator Taylor Swift, who has just released her eleventh studio album, The Tortured Poets Department. “Shoutout to Taylor Swift / Biggest gangster in the music game right now / You know, I moved my album when she dropped."

Drake recently released his eighth album, For all The Dogs.
