Kendrick Lamar done opened up a can of worms in Hip hop!
On Monday Big Sean unveiled a track entitled “Control”: which features the west coast rapper and it stirred up ALOT of talk and debate regarding the state of Hip Hop, it’s lyrics, song messages, and challenges both current artists and the public to re-examine how we define an MCee. KL held no punches as he noted that while he may be “cool” with other rappers, he’s definitely not impress with the music their putting out, and he names a few rappers as well. Lamar’s most controversial line stems from his rap line “I’m Makaveli’s offspring, I’m the king of New York,” King Of The Coast, One Hand, I Juggle Them Both/ ”
I’m usually homeboys with the same n-ggas/I’m rhymin wit/
But this is hiphop and them n-ggas should know what time it is/
and that goes for Jermaine [J] 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 core fans never heard of you n-ggas/
They don’t want hear not one more verb or noun from you n-ggas/
SHOTS FIRED! Oh there’s more:
Kendrick Lamar also talks about the popular drug of choice for most rappers today “Molly” while offering some harsh advice on what the outcome might be for those who continue on that path.
“Moll’ys will probably turn these n-ggas to f–kin Lindsay Lohan. A bunch rich as white girls lookin for parties/Playing with Barbies/Wreck The Porsche before you give ’em the car key”
He continues with:
“And I ain’t rockin no more designer sh-t/ White T’s and Nike Cortez, this red Corvette’s anonymous. “
Here’s the song!
I” just keep it simple and say I HUGELY respect Kendrick Lamar’s bravery for speaking some TRUTH’s about Hip Hop music today. In the words of Ice-T who tweeted this yesterday:
” I love how ONE verse woke Hip Hop the F–k Up! It’s been a LONG time since people talked about ANYTHING someone said in their rhyme….. I’m sure there’s gonna be ALOT of replies and diss tracks, Do’t trip. It’s Hip Hop…. Hey Hip Hop stripes are born in battle. Me and LL [Cool J] did our thing back in the day. It’s [art of the game! “
Rapper Joel Ortiz had this to say:
“ This ain’t no different, I’m listening, you the king of New York? / Lil homie you ain’t the king of New York, you the next thing on my fork/ When we met you said “It’s an honor”, man the YAOWA man can spit/ Maybe that’s why left me out of that sh-t/ Maybe that’s why the Slaughterhouse ain’t get dissed.
Diddy jumped on the action by uploading this pic and caption:
“Kendrick got ya’ll n-ggas taking ya’ll time now. What ya’ll gonna do now Haaaa lolo. Let’s Go!”
Rapper Shyne Po tweeted:
While this is is just a few – there is much more reply disses that have surfaced from rappers B.O.B., Lupe Fiasco, Cassidy, and Fabolous who was in search of a studio at the time of the release track .
