A restaurant in the heart of downtown Toronto is buzzing with business following the recent release of rapper Kendrick Lamar’s latest song.

The six-minute track titled “Euphoria” escalates Kendrick Lamar’s feud with Toronto rapper Drake, including directly mentioning a well-known Chinese restaurant.

Lamar raps, “I be at New Ho King eatin’ fried rice with a dip sauce and blammy, crodie,” in what appears to be a mocking tone toward Drake’s accent and slang.

However, since the track was dropped, New Ho King restaurant has reportedly been buzzing with business.

Additionally, it’s been flooded with five-star reviews on Google, with numerous patrons expressing their praise by quoting lyrics from Euphoria.

It’s also reported that the restaurant located at 410 Spadina Ave., is offering food at discounted prices following its shout-out on Lamar’s song.

Drake appeared to respond subtly to Lamar’s diss by sharing a clip from “10 Things I Hate About You” on his Instagram story. As is typical for Instagram stories, the clip vanished after 24 hours. The scene featured Julia Stiles’ character listing reasons she dislikes Heath Ledger’s character, similar to Lamar’s enumeration of grievances against Drake in the song Euphoria.
