Fans React To Doechii’s Mash-Up Of Hit “Persuasive” And Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us”

The feud between Kendrick Lamar and Drake seems to have ended, but the impact of their brief spat is likely to be felt for quite a while. Kendrick’s final release in their back-and-forth, the DJ Mustard-produced “Not Like Us,” has made a significant impact. Unlike some more severe tracks spawned from their beef, “Not Like Us” is a high-energy track that immediately resonated with fans. The song soared to a number-one debut on the Hot 100 within five days of tracking. It sits in the number two spot, following Morgan Wallen and Post Malone’s new collaboration, which debuted at number one.

One particular big fan of “Not Like Us” is Kendrick’s former Top Dawg Entertainment label mate Doechii. She skillfully integrated the song into one of her biggest hits during a recent performance. “Persuasive,” a track that was a massive turning point for her back in 2022, especially the remix featuring SZA, became a major fan favorite. Now, she’s again adding to the track by incorporating lyrics from “Not Like Us” during her performance at a recent show.

Earlier this year, a list of the top Dawg Entertainment artists expected to release a new album in 2024 made the rounds online. Included on the list was Doechii, who has already begun teasing a potential new project. Most notably, she dropped the single “Alter Ego,” which features JT of City Girls. The hard-hitting cut has racked up more than 8 million streams on Spotify since its initial release last month.
