What Drake references are there in Kendrick Lamar's 'Not Like Us' Music Video?

First of all, Kendrick Lamar released the music video to Not Like Us on July 4, also known as American Independence Day.

The music video starts with Kendrick doing press ups, seemingly referencing Drake's diss track towards Lamar, called Push Ups.

The references to Drake don't stop there, as Kendrick then appears with a number of owls resting on his arms, before he smashes an owl pinata.

The Owl is the logo to Drake's OVO label, with the 'Not Like Us' video starting with the disclaimer: "No OVHoes were harmed during the making of this video."

There are also shots of an owl in a cage, seemingly inferring that Kendrick has reigned supreme amid the beef earlier this year.

Also featured are Lamar's girlfriend Whitney Alford and their two children, where the family are dancing together in the video.

In Drake's diss track 'Family Matters', he alleged that Dave Free fathered one of Lamar's children with Alford, to which Lamar has denied.

Out of all the diss tracks released during the Kendrick / Drake beef, 'Not Like Us' appears to reign triumphant, with over half a billion streams on Spotify alone.

Lamar also released 'meet the grahams', referencing Drizzy's surname Graham.
