Ye is teasing his remix of Future, Metro Boomin and Kendrick Lamar‘s “Like That” diss track.

The superstar rapper, formerly known as Kanye West, stopped by Justin LaBoy’s The Download podcast to premiere his fiery verse on the “Like That” remix, where he takes shots at Drake and J. Cole.


In a clip shared by Ye through Instagram on Saturday (April 20), the 46-year-old rapper is all smiles as he shares a portion of his scorching remix with LaBoy. The track opens with Ye referencing Lamar’s beef with Drake, saying, “You know we had to get the hooligans up here to get these p—y n—as out/ Yo Dot, I got you.”

From there, Ye takes direct hits at both Drake and J. Cole. “Y’all so out of sight, out of mind/ I can’t even think of a Drake line/ Play J. Cole, get the p—y dry/ Play this s— back 130 times.”

The full version of Ye’s “Like That” remix had not officially surfaced on streaming services at press time on Sunday.

Lamar and Drake’s beef ignited with the Compton rapper’s explosive “Like That” verse that set the rap game on fire and remains at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. On the track — which appears on Future and Metro Boomin’s We Don’t Trust You album — K. Dot throws several volleys, suggestively targeting Drizzy and J. Cole.

“Yeah, get up with me, f— sneak dissing/ ‘First Person Shooter,’ I hope they came with three switches,” Lamar aggressively spews on his guest verse.

“First Person Shooter” was the joint song Drake and Cole released last year on which the latter boasted, “Love when they argue the hardest MC/ Is it K. Dot? Is it Aubrey? Or me?/ We the big three like we started a league.”

Ye’s “Like That” remix follows two recent responses from Drake, who officially dropped his “Push Ups” diss track through steaming services on Friday (April 19) and followed later that evening with “Taylor Made Freestyle” on social media. On “Taylor Made,” the 6 God uses AI verses in the style of Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg to further taunt Lamar, who has not yet responded to his “Push Ups” diss.
