Kendrick Lamar May Have Just Started A Feud

By: Amanda Crum - August 13, 2013

Kendrick Lamar did a guest spot on Big Sean’s song “Control (HOF)”, which premiered last night on Funkmaster Flex’s show, and today the web is buzzing about his rap.

Lamar’s portion of the song includes shoutouts to several rappers, but he also officially Goes There with others, including Drake, A$AP Rocky, and Jermaine Cole, calling them out for their inferior skills. Today, Lamar’s name is trending on Twitter as everyone contemplates what sort of retribution the song will bring down.

I heard the barbershops be in great debates all the time:
“Who’s the best MC?” Kendrick, Jigga and Nas,
Eminem, Andre 3000—the rest of y’all
New niggas just new niggas; 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 niggas I’m rhyming with,
But this is hip hop and them niggas 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 niggas,
Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas,
They dont wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you niggas.

    What feud? If anything, the writer has wasted my time with this garbage.

    Def not a fued – this is like a basketball star saying that he’s trying to be better than all other players in order that they raise their game! And it seems like the rappers get what he’s saying… but because it’s hip hop, it’s gotta be a fued, right?!

    Is Kendrick Lamar saying that Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale, Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Big Sean, Jay Electron, Tyler (Odd Future), Mac Miller should NOT wear designer clothes if they are not being paid full for it!? If so then I agree. Rap artist like Rick Ross, Puff Daddy and many more are known for wearing designer clothes. Knowing damn well they can’t even afford what they display. That is called being a perpetrator.

      I’m confused about your comment. It seems as if you’re saying that Puff Daddy can’t “afford what he displays.” You do know that P. Diddy is the highest paid hip hop music mogul out right now, followed closely by Jay-Z. Ever heard of Ciroc
