Kendrick Lamar Says He’s Trying To Murder J. Cole, Drake, Big Sean & Wale, Rappers React [Details]
Rucuss staffAugust 13, 2013
Kendrick Lamar has the hip hop industry’s attention.
Big Sean dropped a leftover track from his Hall of Fame recording sessions and it was an explosive one. On the seven-and-a-half-minute song entitled, Control, he, Kendrick Lamar and Jay Electronica trade sick rhymes on the song that didn’t make the album. Although it was clearly album worthy there were clearance issues.
But instead of shelving the song, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper released the bonus track to Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex on Monday. While Sean delivered some good verses it was Lamar who stole the show. The Compton rapper called out most of his peers, while referencing Tupac and crowning himself the king of both East and West Coast.
“I’m Machiavelli’s offspring, I’m the king of New York/King of the Coast, one hand, I juggle them both,” Lamar rapped. Towards the end of his verse he raps:
I heard the barbershops be in great debates all the time Bout who’s the best MC? Kendrick, Jigga and Nas Eminem, Andre 3000, the rest of y’all New n-ggas just new n-ggas, don’t get involved
I’m usually homeboys with the same n-ggas I’m rhymin wit But this is hip hop and them n-ggas should know what time it is And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Wale, Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Big Sean, Jay Electron‘, Tyler, Mac Miller I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you n-ggas Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you n-ggas
It didn’t take long for some of those rappers to comment on the fiery verse. Many responded to Lamar via Twitter.
Pusha T: I hear u loud and clear my n-gga… @kendricklamar
Big K.R.I.T: “This is Gladiator Shit”…Gotta give the people what they want.
Mac Miller: If I can’t do no more nouns or verbs ima start comin with the wildest adjective bars that anyone has ever heard.
