Kendrick Lamar Claims NYC Throne & Calls Out All The MCs On Big Sean’s Epic “Control”: Listen
Kendrick Lamar is drawing a line in the sand and is ready to beef. On Big Sean‘s epic Hall Of Fame leftover “Control,” which also features Jay Electronica, the Compton kid comes out swinging, challenging any other MCs to take the throne from him. First he stakes his claim as the next 2Pac while touting his own bi-coastal domination: “I’m Makaveli’s offspring/ I’m the king of New York/ King of the coasts/ One hand I juggle them both.”
After that, Lamar offers more words for all these rappers pushing the molly trope, barking, “Molly’s prolly turn these niggas to fuckin’ Lindsay Lohan / A bunch of rich-ass white girls lookin’ for parties playing with Barbies.” And then K-Dot just resorts to naming names, listing everyone from A$AP Rocky to Drake to J. Cole, before laying out his mission: “I got love for you all, but I’m trying to murder you niggas / Tryin’ to make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas / They don’t wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you niggas.”
Well, New York’s Pusha T, Fabolous and Joey Bada$$ have already taken notice on Twitter, as have a few others, but we’re itching to hear some rap responses. For now, head below to hear K-Dot’s warning shots.
