While everyone in hip hop trips over themselves to praise Kendrick Lamar’s self-obsessed bragging on Big Sean’s track “Control,” others are laughing at him.
Kendrick Lamar Duckworth, who normally raps about swimming pools and b*tches killing his vibe, called out hip hop’s biggest rhyme slayers — such as Jay Z, Nas and Drake — telling them to catch up to him.
In response to all the hoopla surrounding Kendrick’s verse, Sean “Diddy” Combs posted a photo on his Instagram of himself and Jay Z literally laughing at him.
It’s hard to keep a straight face when a One Verse Wonder calls himself “King of New York.”
Listen to “Control” after the break.
- I heard the barbershops be in great debates all the time
About 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
And I ain’t rockin’ no more designer shit
White Ts and Nike Cortez, this is red Corvettes anonymous
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 KRIT, 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
They don’t wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you n*ggas
