Not like us

Kendrick Lamar

"Not Like Us" is a diss track written and recorded by the American rapper Kendrick Lamar. It was released on May 4, 2024, via Interscope Records, amidst his ongoing feud with the Canadian rapper Drake. It is Lamar's fourth installment in his arsenal of Drake-targeted diss tracks, and premiered less than 24 hours after his previous single, "Meet the Grahams".[

Produced by Mustard, "Not Like Us" is a hyphy-influenced West Coast hip hop song composed of a prominent bassline with lively brass instruments and finger snaps. Its lyrics continue the themes introduced in "Meet the Grahams" by doubling down on Drake's pedophilia and sexual misconduct allegations, while also accusing him of exploiting Atlanta's music and cultural scenes for street credibility and financial gain.

"Not Like Us" was met with widespread acclaim from music critics, who viewed the single as Lamar's victory lap as his feud with Drake started to wind down. Complex named it the best track in their conflict, while the Ringer regards it as the seventh-greatest diss track of all time. Commercially, "Not Like Us" broke several streaming records and became the first rap song to reach number-one on the Billboard Hot 100 with a limited tracking week.
