He commended Lamar for choosing the right time for the concert, saying, “Perfect timing, Kendrick,” in reference to Juneteenth. While he added that he does not have anything against the Grammy-winning rapper, Godfrey emphasized the impact Lamar has had with his concert, saying,

Is authenticity coming back? Is the pendulum finally swinging back, from all that mumble bullsh*t? Is hip-hop actually coming back? 

He further stated,

I’m gonna tell you right now, everybody was there. I mean you had LeBron James, you had Russell Westbrook, you had James Harden, SZA… The Weekend was there — Tyler, the Creator was there. Dr. Dre did some stuff on stage — Everybody was in the building man.

Godfrey’s comparisons introduce a new dynamic to their feud—highlighting that, like Batman and Bane, both rappers boast similar skills but have contrasting journeys and ideologies. However, some fans argue this analogy is a double-edged sword, as the comparison also puts Lamar in a potentially compromising position.

Many have argued while Lamar might have an upper hand now, like Bane, Drake, akin to Batman, could eventually come out on top. The interpretation has sparked debate among fans, with Drake supporters contending that Godfrey’s analogy implies Drake’s eventual triumph over Lamar.
