Did Kendrick Lamar take shot at Kevin Durant on latest single?

Did Kendrick Lamar take shot at Kevin Durant on latest single?

Hip hop artist Kendrick Lamar's new album "The Heart Part 4" drops on April 7, but his lyrics are already making waves.

Lamar, who hails from Compton, California, appears to take a shot at Kevin Durant for his decision to leave the Thunder and join the Warriors this past offseason in free agency.

From the single titled "IV":

     Tables turned, lessons learned, my best look
     You jumped sides on me, now you 'bout to meet Westbrook
     Go celebrate with your team and let victory vouch you
     Just know the next game played, I might slap the s--- out you
     Technical foul, I'm flagrant, I'm foul
     They throwin' me out, you throw in the towel

If the Warriors face the Thunder again this season, it will be in a playoff series. Golden State swept Oklahoma City 4-0 during the regular season, winning 122-96 on Nov. 3, 121-100 on Jan. 18, 130-114 on Feb. 11, and 111-95 on March 20

Their average margin of victory was just under 20.
