Did Kendrick Lamar confuse Haley Joel Osment with Joel Osteen?

After the Pulitzer Prize-winning rapper released his new Drake diss track, "Euphoria," on April 30, fans began parsing through the lyrics and noticed Lamar names Osteen while referencing the films A.I. Artificial Intelligence and The Sixth Sense — both of which star Osment, 36.

"Am I battlin' ghost or AI? N---- feelin' like Joel (Hale) Osteen / Funny, he was in a film called A.I. / And my sixth sense tellin' me to off him," raps Lamar, 36, on the track.

Some listeners were confused, as neither film features Osteen, a 61-year-old Texas-based televangelist known for televised church services and his many faith-based books.

While Lamar could've made a simple mix-up between the two similarly named stars, the lyric could have more meaning behind it.

Osteen has been accused of using ghostwriters in the past, and so has Drake, whom Lamar is taking shots at on "Euphoria" — the latest in a series of back-and-forth disses between the two rappers.

The lyric could be interpreted as Lamar knowingly mixing up Osteen and Osment's names as a way to shadily communicate feeling unable to tell who wrote the lyrics of Drake's recent diss tracks about him.

Reps for Lamar did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

"Euphoria" serves as a response to Drake's recent, since-deleted "Taylor Made Freestyle," which saw the "Hotline Bling" rapper refer to Lamar as a "coward" and featured AI-generated vocals from the "Humble" rapper's fellow West Coast MCs, Snoop Dogg and the late Tupac Shakur.

Lamar, on the other hand, called Drake "a master manipulator and a habitual liar" on the new song and took aim at his rap skills: "You not a rap artist, you a scam artist with the hopes of bеing accepted."

Elsewhere on "Euphoria," Lamar calls out Drake's recent tourmate J. Cole, who helped spark the feud by claiming himself, the Canadian rapper and Lamar are the "big three" rappers in the game on the recent song "First Person Shooter" from Drake's For All the Dogs album.

"Yeah, Cole and Aubrey know I'm a selfish n---- / The crown is heavy, huh / I pray they my real friends, if not, I'm YNW Melly / I don't like you poppin' s---, that s--- for real, I inherit the beef," says Lamar on his new track. "Yeah, f--- all that pushin' P, let me see you push-a-T / You better off spinnin' again on him, you think about pushin' me?"
