When Dennis strikes a chord, it’s never A-minor — he always checks their licenses.

By now, the rap beef between Drake and Kendrick Lamar that divided pop culture for weeks while spawning numerous hit singles in the process has cooled off, but as the core characters of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia can attest, any beef left un-squashed is liable to reignite at any given moment and burn down Dennis and Mac’s apartment in the process. After Kendrick’s catchiest diss track yet in “Not Like Us” skyrocketed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, the outpouring of hit songs as the two artists aired one another’s dirty laundry ceased, and the highly entertained hip-hop community had to accept the fact that no feud in entertainment can truly last forever. 

Well, almost no feud — I’m sure the McPoyle family still has a great many qualms with Charlie, Dennis and the rest of the degenerates from Paddy’s Pub.

One fan of both It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the most musically fruitful rap feud in decades decided that, as much as we all love “Not Like Us,” Lamar’s masterpiece feels incomplete without a proper music video. As such, the YouTuber Nate’s TV Edits took it upon himself to give us “The Gang is Not Like Us” — let’s see what Drake has to rap about that.

Beyond being very pleasingly in time, Nates TV Edits music video for “Not Like Us” is filled to the brim with references that fans of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia can catch as they bounce to the beat. For instance, putting the clip of Frank finding out that Charlies new (possibly North) Korean girlfriend is 12 years old from the episode “The Gang Solves the North Korea Situation” over the line “Say Drake, I hear you like em young” was absolutely diabolical editing.

Ultimately, the best music video Lamar never asked for wont move the needle on a rap beef he already won, but Meek Mill might be relieved to see Philadelphia can still rally against Drake.
