Kevin Durant has seemingly picked a side in the Drake vs. Kendrick Lamar beef.

Durant was spotted hanging out with Drake on Monday, celebrating Canada Day with the Toronto-born rapper.

Durant’s outing with Drake comes a few weeks after a handful of NBA stars were seen at Lamar’s “Pop Out and Show” concert in Los Angeles in June. LeBron James, DeMar DeRozan, James Harden, Russell Westbrook and Coby White were all in attendance at the show, and DeRozan and Westbrook even joined him on stage.

It’s unclear whether any other NBA stars joined Durant as he bumped elbows with Drake, but the rapper at least has one athlete in his corner.

Drake and Lamar’s rap feud began in the spring and has been one of the biggest storylines in the music industry since. Lamar has released songs such as Euphoria, Meet the Grahams and Not Like Us aimed towards Drake while Drake has put out songs like Push Ups, Taylor Made Freestyle and The Heart Part 6 in response.

The beef has seemingly cooled down in recent weeks, as the last song released came in May, but Lamar’s show at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles reignited chatter surrounding the two rappers, with NBA players getting into the mix by being in attendance.

It’s worth noting that Durant has a history of rapping, so perhaps he’ll spend his offseason in the booth with Drake.
