1. Kendrick Lamar’s verse on Big Sean’s “Control” took social media by storm as fans rushed to react to his shots at current rappers.
3. After putting himself in the same class as top MCs Jay-Z, Nas, Eminem, and Andre 3000, he took aim at the current crop of rappers:
I’m usually homeboys with the same n***as I’m rhymin’ wit
But this is hip-hop and them n***as should know what time it is
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale
Pusha T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake
Big Sean, Jay Electron’, Tyler, Mac Miller
I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you n***as
Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you n***as
They don’t wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you n***as
What is competition? I’m tryna raise the bar high
Who tryna jump and get it?
