While the rumors were still lingering, Kevin dropped another bomb when he released his single, Super General. When you listen to the lyrics closely, Kevin is accusing Dreka of cheating. The lyrics read,
“Went home to sleep, deep down, there’s tension when you knowin’ that somethin’ missin’ / Suck it up, put all my energy back in Islah and lil’ Killa / Took the blame in interviews and made it look like I was trippin’ / Made the Dreka song lie to the world while tryna protect her image.”
He further added, “Tell me you love me, I say it back / Back in my mind, I’m indifferent / Brought this infiltrator to the farm / Hurt my heart, what am I missin. Personal trainer invaded my personal space / Deep down inside it killed me.”
The ‘personal trainer’ line added more fuel to the speculations. As for now, neither Kevin nor Dreka has addressed the rumors.
