Drizzy and K.Dot are far from resolving their feud as the 'In My Feelings' hitmaker seems to target his rap rival again in his latest Instagram post, sparking reactions from his followers.

AceShowbiz - Drake's latest Instagram move has fans buzzing and the hip-hop world speculating about the ongoing feud with Kendrick Lamar. On Sunday, June 9, Drake returned to Instagram, labeling himself a "goat" with a picture from his son Adonis' soccer game.

His caption, "Goats don't worry about one trick ponies," has fans interpreting it as a subtle jab at Kendrick Lamar. The caption sparked a wave of reactions from followers that included celebrities like Ice Spice and Sexyy Red.

This latest post reignites the simmering feud between Drake and Lamar, which started earlier this year. Kendrick kicked off the dispute by dissing Drake on Metro Boomin and Future's track, "Like That," back in March. The two hip-hop giants have since traded diss tracks, with notable highlights being Drake's "Family Matters" and Kendrick's "Not Like Us", which topped multiple charts and broke records.

Despite signs that the beef over after both stopped dropping new diss tracks, the rivalry seems far from settled. Nonetheless, Drake's Instagram antics suggest that he hasn't forgotten the slights from Kendrick despite removing his diss tracks from social media.

Interestingly, some fans have drawn parallels between Drake's caption and the plot of Paul Simon's 1980 movie "One-Trick Pony." The film's protagonist, Jonah, an aging rock star struggling with a new album and a failing marriage, echoes the personal jabs in Drake's songs targeting Kendrick.

As both stars continue to stay in the public eye - with Drake attending Adonis' soccer games while throwing subliminal and Kendrick Lamar recently delivering commencement speech at Compton College - their fans remain divided on who has the upper hand.

Trevor Noah, Seth Rogen, and Naomi Osaka declared Kendrick the winner of the battle. "You don't hear defensive rapping that often. Rapping's usually pretty aggressive. … I would say as soon as you are asserting in a rap song that you should not be a registered sex offender, you've lost the rap battle," Rogen cracked in one of his stand-up comedies.

Meanwhile, Snoop Dogg took a neutral stance while praising both sides. "As far as what they did for the industry and the rap game, they made you rap again," he said. "You can't mumble your way and gimmick your way to a song no more, buddy. So, thank y'all."

As for the resolution of this feud, only time will tell if Drake will ease off on the subliminal digs or if the rivalry will persist as Drake's knack for cultural references and clever wordplay keeps his followers intrigued and entertained. For now, his fans are relishing his triumphant return to social media and anticipating what's next in this high-stakes battle.
