One of the main angles is that of Dave Free co-directing this with Kendrick Lamar, as the duo stands tall against Drake's claims that there's friction. Specifically, on tracks like "Family Matters" and "The Heart Part 6," Drizzy claims that the Compton lyricist's son with his partner is actually Free's. Speaking of which...

"Not Like Us" Music Video Is Hitting Big

Whitney Alford and her kids with Kendrick Lamar also popped out to show Drake that perhaps his accusals of Kendrick are moot. Of course, we don't really know what's real or what's not behind the scenes, but that's true for all the attacks during the battle. We'll see what other legs the "Not Like Us" video grows in its successful and astonishing path. What we'll also see is whether or not more entities, particularly in Los Angeles, start looking at owls a little differently.
