Kendrick Lamar Says He's "Trying To Murder" Drake, J. Cole, Wale On Big Sean's "Control"

Kendrick Lamar also says he is "trying to murder" Big K.R.I.T., Pusha, T, A$AP Rocky, Jay Electronica, Tyler, the Creator and Mac Miller on Big Sean's "Control." Lamar also crowns himself "the king of New York" and "king of the Coast" on the track.

Kendrick Lamar says he is "trying to murder" rappers on Big Sean's "Control," a song that leaked Monday (August 12), which also features Jay Electronica

"I'm usually homeboys with the same niggas I'm rhymin' with," Kendrick Lamar says on the song. "But this is Hip Hop and them niggas should know what time it is. That goes for Jermaine Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Wale, Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Big Sean, Jay Electron[ica], Tyler[, the Creator], Mac Miller. I got love for you all but I'm tryin' to murder you niggas. Trying to make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas [and that] they don't want to hear not one more noun or verb from you niggas. What is competition? I'm trying to raise the bar high." 

The line above follows Lamar's claims that "new" rappers are currently left out of many "debates" he's heard about. 

"I heard the barbershops be in great debates all the time," Lamar says on the track. "About who's the best emcee? Kendrick, Jigga and Nas, Eminem, Andre 3000. The rest of y'all new niggas [are] just new niggas. Don't get involved." 

Another Lamar statement on the song addresses his status in New York and the West Coast, following a remark likely inspired by Tupac Shakur. 

"I'm Makaveli's offspring," Lamar raps, likely referring to Tupac's 1996 release as Makaveli, The Don Killuminati (The 7 Day Theory). "I'm the king of New York, king of the Coast, one hand, I juggle them both." 

Lamar's "king of New York" line was likely inspired by a 2010 selection, "Get Bizy," which featured Kendrick Lamar, Terrace Martin, Bad Lucc and Kurupt. "I'm important like the pope," Kurupt says on "Get Bizy." "I'm the king of New York. I'm live from South Central. I'm a Muslim on pork." Lamar's verse on "Control," which also references his "big homie Kurupt" by name, features the lines from "Get Bizy." "I'm important like the pope," Lamar rhymes on the song. "I'm a Muslim on pork."

"Control," which will reportedly not appear on Big Sean's Hall of Fame album, can be heard on HipHopDX and it can be streamed below.

Rappers, including Pusha T who was named in the song, began responding to Lamar's verse on Twitter soon after the song was leaked.

    Okay first off I love how media puts things. There was an interview with big Sean or Kendrick that explains his song and how it's just a joke. He clearly states "I got love for you all" before but I'm trying to murdur you niggas...

    Best move an emcee has made in a long while, he not only increased his own following 5-fold, but got people paying attention to the other artists he mentions and the ones that responded to him. Dude lit a fire under the whole genre's ass in 3 minutes, give him his fuckin props. Verse of the year, like it or not. Just wish it wasn't on that annoying ass beat, can barely listen to it

    Kendrick's verse is dope as shit. Gotta say though Pusha been waiting for someone to say his name, pushing half the industry for awhile even. Few people understand Pusha outside that "coke" shit, dude an incredible emcee. If he makes a track, shit could get real. I look forward to it, shit's good for hip-hop.

  • Alonso Avila

    I really do think that people are blowing this whole thing out of proportion. I don't think this is an attack on anyone. Kendrick clearly states that he's "homeboys" with the same artists he rhymes with: Big Sean and Jay Electronica. Kendrick does use the word "usually", but I think that refers to the music industry being something like the saying "crabs in a bucket": Everyone for themselves. If anything, he's just pushing the artists to be more creative and lyrical with their music. I don't think the artists need to lose their anger over this. There are bigger issues in this world than being "king", "best of all time," etc. These artists need to grow up and be more mature than the audience they're catering to.

    i think Kendrick is what the Hiphop industry neeeded, errbody's fforming cliques and playing it safe nowadays but what inspired hiphop stardom was the fact that there were no teams hookin up with other teams when it started and i think K-Dot sat down saw this and decided todo it for the love of hiphop, the roots of it and screw everybody, this ish gone resonate through out history as the turning point in modern day hiphop, no wait, modern day Rap!!!

  • Gucci

    Gucci Mane is the realest rapper and heres why. - all other rappers rap about being gangster shooting and killing but they havent done it. - Eminem raps about killing he hasnt. - Jay z raps in open letter about sending shots he hasnt. - T.I. snitch to the feds - Young Jeezy was never bmf - 50 Cent snitch and was never in jail but a youthcamp - Game was never a banger but lived the life of his brother in his lyrics - Nas Escobar never sold drugs - Ice Cube never was a gangbanger - Dr Dre never was a gangbanger - Snoop was never a crip - 2pac was a ballerina and never sold drugs after he become famous he was doing some stupid stuff like beating and shooting at people because he though he could get away with it. Without Suge Knight 2pac was just a skinny motherf*cker. - Mobb deep are the biggiest cowards in rap they are short as midgets and keep talking this g sh*t but never did g sh*t. - Most of the rappers rap about stuff they havent done yet you all support them and say its real rap. - When rick ross does it you all claim he is fake and say its fake rap. This shows that hiphop fans are hypocritical and all these real hiphop fan wanna be's are just some unjustified haters whose opinions are just as irrelevent as the swag fag rapper fans. BIG GUWOP KILLED A MAN HE WAS A DRUG DEALER BEFORE RAPPER HE HAS STREET CREDENTIALS HE IS THE ONLY RAPPER THAT RAPS ABOUT FACTS THERE FORE BIG GUWOP IS THE REALEST RAPPER IN THE RAP GAME AND THATS A FACT!

    I liked his energy and the verse itself. It definitely got me hyped. He's the only one beside Drake out that bunch that can go platinum and consistently make hit songs. So It's not like what he said was far fetched. But I still think that J. Cole is a better lyricist then Kendrick. Still some hot stuff though.

  • dwes79

    He's trying to make nigga's stand on there on two and bring the lyricism back to the game...Kendrick is playing Jedi-mind games with hip-hop...The sad reality that Kendrick does not understand or can't fathom is that nigga's is already lost...Some in their own lanes, while, others are mundane...If you notice, certain niggas didn't get mad because they understand what he's doing...It's like this one guy in Ohio that got pissed about everybody marching for Trayvon M., but stating stating nobody care about the niggas getting killed everyday by they own kind. So, how do niggas respond to this guy, they attack with no understanding of what he is actually trying to accomplish...Which, is to tell the fans; either listen to someone with substance or stop listening to these lames all together.

    Freddie Foxxx was right. The fact that a dope verse is getting so much HYPE is one of the reasons hip hop is in a bad state. When a young and popular MC has a great verse it's like the world is ending. I guess that's what happens when the young and popular mc's for the past couple years have been guys like Drake and Lil Wayne.

      His verses on Section.80 and GKMC are better than most rappers verses. He might not have as much wordplay or internal rhymes, but keep in mind it's harder to be lyrical when you actually have a topic. The rappers you listen to probably drop endless verses with no meaning and random subject matter.

      How bout the fact that there was barely 2 punchlines. Bars with words that didn't even rhyme. Mispronouncing words just to fit the rhyme, i.e. New "Yolk".

    1st- nice publicity stunt, never seen kendrick trending or #1 trending before 2nd. Kendrick had one of the best albums of 2012 and Section 80 before that was very good as well, Big Krit had a really nice album as well and content wise rich dad,poor dad could go up against any song on GKMC, Nas also had one of the best albums last year. This year has been very slow. 3rd. the responses today " wow kendrick is raising the bar", "thanks Kendrick", "that's my nigga" The responses 10 years ago "your a house nigga guy, andre 3 stacks,good kid aight but aint no aquemini, thats why you dont sound good live because all your tracks are synthesized" but maybe someone will make this interesting.

And honestly andre 3000 flo is better than his 90s flo that's why his considered one of the best. And if you don't think his trying to raise the bar then your stuck in the 90s honestly. His bringing hip hop back to where it use to be telling everybody they need to step there game up I guess you like lil wayne huh..?

    Kendrick Lamar never impressed me much. He's like the Kurt Kobain of rap. A little depressing if you ask me.. But at the same time the passion he puts into his lyrics one has to respect. Let's hope he really sticks to this "fuck money" thing and slowly transforms rap back to its roots. Before rap was about bragging about what you had and was about sharing stories and awareness with a little subliminal competition in your lyrics. Could Kendrick be the 2nd coming of real hip hop?

      Maaaan! He didn't call out any REAL spitters. Just a bunch of overrated clowns. He bigged up the dudes that really spit that shit i.e. 3000, Nas and Hov. Kendrick ain't stupid nor is he that great of a spitter.

    • kitty litter

      I agree. But I think what he did was smart. He just created a whole bunch of work for himself because like you said, he's going to have a wholllle bunch of talented rappers firing back at him within the next few weeks. That means he gets to fire back at all those rappers individually when they do. Like a real estate agent that just found out he's got a whole bunch of houses to sell, it's work, but it's good.

  • GAV

    What about Joel Ortiz or Corey Gunz. I love Kendrick lamar hes raw. But there are so much talent out there that it all depends on the listener. Now a days the listener strives for loud deliveries and choppy flows and can have shit for lyrics. Though K dot is nasty with wordplay, no doubt. But Idk Pusha T and Wale? Those two are pretty good. But Like I said you got Joel ortiz or how about COB from Crooked I's coast. BTW I'm a fan of Kendrick Lamar. He definitely inspired me to start flowing again. The shit he does on the radio station with the free styling truly off the top I can do, I'll flow till 2-3-4 am in the morning...I Love wordplay as well. Kendrick is raw but Idk about going after the game like this. But I do understand that this is an competitive sport. -GAV

    k.dot can call any rapper nw he can shit on any nigga out there #thatssituation

  • benben

    Lets be real no matter what this is a wake up call! Artist in hip hop are suppose to be compitive thats the nature of it.I don't care what people say K.Dot and Jay Electronica were both hot. He was not trying to come up with a deep verse he was trying to get hip hop back alive thats his goal and obviously a lot of rappers agree. I'm just saying plus for all of Dick riding Drake fans. I am a fan of drake as well but Drake ain't got shit on K.Dot because K.Dot himself has made a debut classic and Drake hasn't made one classic yet! So it's obvious he's better. I'm not dick riding because I'm just gonna be real about artist, and this is some real sht.

  • CulturesClothing

    Kendrick is extremely dope...that much is a fact. And his verse was also very dope. But of course you're going to be murdering MC's if your competition is Drake, A$AP Rocky, Meek Mill, etc. You want to start putting yourself in a conversation of the "Best of the Best"? Put yourself on a track with Qwel, Pharoahe Monch, Chino XL, Blu, Elzhi, etc. and eat those guys alive. Then I'll REALLY be impressed. I kind of expect Kendrick to bodybag J. Cole and guys like that. Talented MC, but not mind-blowing. Murder Hex One & Tek-nition of Epidemic and guys like that on tracks and I'll be more impressed. No hate...I like Kendrick a lot. Just truth.

WHAT HE SHOULD BE WORRYING ABOUT IS HIS MEDIOCRE SALES...U CLAIM TO MURDER DRAKE WITH 200K FIRST WEEK ?! LMFAOO #SEPT17TH

  • Jay

    Thank you Kendrick!! All this we all getting money thing took the Lyrics out the game. You have artist scared of competition pushing albums back and letting artist get a certain date to release theri album... who does that. Hiphop is build on skill not this we all eating ish. You nice you will eat, X Jay Nas Big Pac was dropping Albums at the same time. Raise the Bar Lamar. Stop all this Harmony get money ish and drop lyrical bombs and show who really is the best with you young dudes.

    • Jay

      Was on no one nuts,I am stating facts. Hiphop has turned into a we are the world game. You don't push albums back because your friend album is coming out. Kendrick spoke volumes to MC's ( want to be MC's). You got Drake buying J Cole cds in best buy. That is cool that you are friends but when in the studio I am their to kill you. So Kendrick just put competition back into hiphop. You got dude going a Jay instead of going at their direct comp.

    Look at these comments. Kendrick wins. Debates, arguments, and most importantly discussion. Some of you are highly disappointing to even remotely think this is "beef". This is equivalent to hooping with your friends and saying "YOU'RE GOING DOWN BITCH." Do you cry when that happens? This will set the bar higher so that people set their bars higher. Good for music. Point blank.

  • dentaldamboy

    As an accountant for young money, i can confirm that we do not want beef with kendrick.

    Let's be clear and end it here. Kendrick's verses were not a dis to anyone, PERIOD! This 20 something year old kid LOVES HIP-HOP, the old and new. Verses were meant to cause a debate and light up twit birds/social media sites. If you love hip-hop you gotta love how he delivered the verses. We need the debate, but keep civilize fellaz. Ain't nobody talking about no real gangster shi* over the net. It's music! If you love hip hop you are bumpin to this joint in your ride/ipod.

  • JordanLebronMagicLarryWilt

    I'm a fan of Kendrick Lamar but he's 0-2 on the mic when matched up with legends in my opinion. Jay-Z's bars were better on 'Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe (Remix)' and 50 Cent's bars were better on 'We Up'. K Dot should of saved this for an Eminem track instead of wasting it on Big Sean and the B-Version of Nas.

    • Dat Dude

      I agree with Mr.HipHop... Kendrick just raised the bar on rappers who is luke warm in the game or worth to mention. What really funny is it took someone from the west coast to spark up the rap game. Kendrick respect the game and the folks he mention. Basically he just let all hip hop fans know he about hip hop sticking to straight basic dropping bars on other rappers. Respect his gangsta but young dude just Son NY rappers since it the birth place of hip hop and took it nationally and internationally (Drake).

I mean all the rappers he dissed were wack anyways. J. cole is boring, wale is trash, drake is a soft poser, big Sean is an idiot, ASAP rocky will be irrelevant, Mac miller sucks, big KRIT is overrated, pusha t fell off, meek mill is a nobody now, jay electronics barely makes any verses and Tyler the creator will murk Kendrick Lamar like he did to b.o.b. Besides, Macklemore sold more than this moron so he's not even the king of his own coast lol.

This track invites hators, critics, fans all in one. All in all I hope more interesting music comes out like this. Cause I'm a fan of this hip hop shit.

  • Not Impressed

    I've said it before and i'll say it again, Kendrick Lamar is an average rapper. Is he the best new rapper out right now? Probably, but that doesn't mean he's dope. It just means hiphop right now sucks. Almost every rapper he name dropped is garbage, he has no competition. This is why he couldn't blow up in the 2000s, there were too many rappers out who were better then him. Go and watch that video with him rapping with Charles Hamilton. Charles was fucking RAPING HIM, rhyming off the top of his head. These days people like that aren't around, so Kendrick was able to enter the game and be the best in an ERA OF SHITTY RAPPERS. Just listen to the song, his lyrics are average. People like it because of the length, his delivery, and the name dropping, but if you read the lyrics on paper, it's not all that. To me, Jay Electronica's verse was far superior. But because people think he's "old" and he has no gimmicks, people don't want to give him any credit. Like Masta Killa said, 'The dumb are mostly intrigued by the drum' and that's real shit. I'm not impressed

    • eat it

      That's why jay electronica killed him on this song. And he doesn't even have an official album. His verse on here will not be easy to understand to the average kendrick stan.

    • You'e an idiot

      You honestly sound like the quintessential hater, spewing unfounded hate from your hate-filled pulpit. I have never seen said "cypher", but I'll take your word for it. I don't think there's a rapper who is undefeated in battles. Just because someone can win in cyphers doesn't make them a dope emcee...see Juice, the emcee not the movie. Slaughterhouse albums/mixtapes have been just alright, but we know all those dudes can spit at least as well as Kendrick, yet Kendrick's albums and mixtapes sound way better.

    • you're an idiot (reply)

      The "mainstream comment" was meant for the guy above you. I have to disagree with you and say that kendrick's verse was mediocre and that jay electronicas verse was way better. Really break down what kendrick is saying and its not any new that I haven't heard in a freestyle or battle.

    • Not Impressed

      I don't give a fuck who likes him, you people are drones and follow everything you read on the internet. I never said only 90's rappers can be dope. As i mentioned, Charles Hamilton was rapping in a cypher with Kendrick a couple of years ago and he murdered him. Willie The Kid is better then Kendrick, Jay Electronica is better then Kendrick, there are a lot of new, none 80s/90s rappers I respect, who are way better then this dude. I'm just not impressed by these rappers the internet tries to shove down our throats.

    • You're an idiot

      Sorry, forgot the "r"

    • You'e an idiot

      You're assuming that I only listen to mainstream rap. Idiot. Some of my fav. records this year include Czarface and Uptown X.O.'s joint. I listen to hiphop, there's good hip-hop to be found in the mainstream and the underground. There's no way on earth that verse is mediocre. As for albums, like the guy below me said, including mixtapes Kendrick has 4 projects which are all solid. It's Ok to laud Biggie and Big Pun, but not Kendrick? Kendrick has a least as much material as both of them.

    • This nigga above me is on kennys nuts

      Yeah, but jay-z's got the albums and battles behind him and really doesn't have to prove himself anymore. Kendrick spit a mediocre verse and were supposed to get excited!? If you want to hear dope verses and whole albums worth stop listening to pop corporate rap.

    • You're an idiot

      Tonnes of vets who can spit acknowledged how good Kendrick's verse was. These same vets like Royce repeatedly acknowledge how good Kendrick is. You're probably one of those delusional heads who think only the people from the late 80's and 90's can spit. Guess what? Kendrick could probably spit with Biggie, Big L, Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, Kool G Rap etc. Get over yourself, moron. There are a lot of legends from Golden Era who you probably dick ride who couldn't rap with Kendrick like Q-Tip or Pos from De La Soul. Just because they dropped classic don't mean they are dope emcees.

    • This nigga above me is a hater

    Gucci Mane is the realest rapper and heres why. - all other rappers rap about being gangster shooting and killing but they havent done it. - Eminem raps about killing he hasnt. - Jay z raps in open letter about sending shots he hasnt. - T.I. snitch to the feds - Young Jeezy was never bmf - 50 Cent snitch and was never in jail but a youthcamp - Game was never a banger but lived the life of his brother in his lyrics - Nas Escobar never sold drugs - Ice Cube never was a gangbanger - Dr Dre never was a gangbanger - Snoop was never a crip - 2pac was a ballerina and never sold drugs after he become famous he was doing some stupid stuff like beating and shooting at people because he though he could get away with it. Without Suge Knight 2pac was just a skinny motherf*cker. - Mobb deep are the biggiest cowards in rap they are short as midgets and keep talking this g sh*t but never did g sh*t. - JA-RULE IS THE BIGGEST CLOWN IN HIPHOP WITH TOTALLY NO STREETCREDIBILITY! Be in jail for smoking weed, carrying a gun or tax evasion is for pussies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Yo Kendrick its time to come out of the closet faggot. You like dicks! - Most of the rappers rap about stuff they havent done yet you all support them and say its real rap. - When rick ross does it you all claim he is fake and say its fake rap. This shows that hiphop fans are hypocritical and all these real hiphop fan wanna be's are just some unjustified haters whose opinions are just as irrelevent as the swag fag rapper fans.

      I liked it quite a lot. I think it's overlooked mostly cuz it's after kendrick's (people will probably keep rewinding once that verse ends) and it's the shortest verse.

  • Hahaha

    Kendrick just dissed Nas and Jay-Z but you ain't even know it... hahahah aftermath stay winning...Eminem, Dr Dre bitches....waaaaa

  • drop knowledge

    Dam, that Jay Electronica verse was FIRE!!!! I think it was better than kendrick's. Kendricks verse was really elementary and easy to follow about him being the the best and wanting everyone to compete with him. Jay said so much more with fewer words and it was deep, and will go over a lot of peoples heads.

  • the-shadi

    WOWWW that verse :o

  • my name is my name

    Pusha T is a new nigga? he is 40 years old lol

  • So Icy Boi!

    as a close friend of Lil Wayne I can confirm we YMCMB niggas are mad at Kendrick Lame-r... Weezy let diz nigga to rap over da Carter 3 beats... and sneak ass nigga say Andre 3k, Nas, Jay and Feminem better rappers? Weezy murdered dem on collabs. enough said. swag

  • So Icy Boi!

    fuck Kendrick Lamar... he didn't mention Lil Wayne as da greatest rapper of all time... Weezy made you famous, you disloyal bitch ass nigga. swag

    • Anonymous

      I know you aint just called that weasel lookin ass nigga the greatest rapper of all time. first of all you prolly aint been on this earth long enuff to determine who the greatest rapper WAS guess u never heard what he sounded like when he first CAME OUT. FOH

    • agree for once

      And he's using waynes tactics by naming himself the best.

  • Drizzy!

    People act like Kendrick is new. He has two dope mixtapes and section 8.0 and GKMC. All 4 of his releases thus far have been stellar. Quality is more important than quantity. People have enough material from him to start forming opinions about where he ranks. If Biggie or Big Pun's names can come up on an all-time greats list so can Kendrick. It ain't like their sample sizes are any larger.

  • kitrob

    i knew kendrick used 50 cent rap and old beat bass that's 50 cent verse

  • kachi

    he fucked up vrybody-----let the battle begin

    • shadow boxin

      He really didn't acheive anything, everyone he mentioned are his boys. They going to praise him for his comments but at the end of the day all he did was spit a descent verse. If you want to hear more stop listening to pop rap.

  • The problem

    Fools like blacks niggas don't listen all thy want to her is that simple lengthy verse with out facts or proof. Jay E. got that song but you know niggas don't have the patient to listen all they no is gun shot and baseless noise.

  • Blacks are lame

    Just a verse and you Youngins and fucked up Fools are calling him goat. The game was about to do thesame thing but had no sense of approach, now K.dot with some tactics for lame niggas you fools are going all wild.. A greater rapper once said in Kens verse that( I wait) and that's what you fools need to do. Wait for more albums from him before saying shit.

  • DaMilkman

    Honestly... it wasn't much of a diss, more so friendly fire cos a diss wouldn't have "I got love 4 u.." 2 start it off. secondly r ppl really tryina overlook the poetry that Jay Elec dropped after??... Kendrick MURDERED it don't get me wrong but lyrically it was his last 8 bars that was off the chain on some Eminem type sh!t but 4 me "Jay Electricity" BODIED it in 16 bars. just listen please 4 the sake poetry lol. Also it osund like Sean took a few shots @ K.Dot 4 sure..he must re-wrote his verse haha

  • Generic Comment

    Great job kenny!

  • Game Change

    Got damnit this nigga just did it. He pulled his dick out a laid it on the table. lol.

  • T-wiLLz

    All I gotta say is that hopefully this triggers something raw to happen in the game, where all the new era rappers will actually TRY and write something dope, whether mentioning or dissing k dot, with what's hopefully its a hot verse. This week can be either one of the dopest weeks of hiphop or just another ordinary weak ass week

    • yawn

      People will forget when next weeks releases come out and gucci or drake is back on top. Their is alot of dope hip hop always being released that takes some looking to find. Its silly that one verse would get someone all excited about hip hop when you can find a ton of dope albums that artist make from the heart and not from just wanting a big corporate pay check.

  • T-wiLLz

    Fuckin right, rap is getting to the point where the only way you can get a "good song" is by having other people on it, its going away from competition and becoming "team work", and the thing about team work is that everyone becomes lazy and half asses everything they write down/spit cus they know its gonna be a hit if they have people like wiz khalifa and k dot on the song too. That's the only reason why groups like hustle gang and MMG are still here, reason why people even try to mention french Montana as "good"... Reason why DJ Khalid's fat ass gets "his" music to sell, too many people are wanting to listen to songs only because of the line ups. There's nothing wrong with getting a couple artists together on a track and try n see who spits the hardest, its a problem when all of the artists on the track only spit a couple words cus they know people will buy/listen to it. Last song with a group of artists on it that I liked was 1 train, that was sorta decent, but last song to impress me was forever cus all of them on that track actually tried to kill it while sticking to their own style.

  • Trap Lord

    he moved up the ladder...he might even be Top 5 Dead or Alive right about now bruh

  • Pat

    With this verse Kendrick Just took the Fucking Hip-Hop Throne

    • black angel

      True, how can you be the best when most of the rappers he mentioned are c+ at best. He should going at underground rappers like r.a. the rugged man, black thought, ill bill and celph titled.

    • the throne

      was the throne empty before this or did he take it from someone else?

  • NYCDaFuture

  • sgswgr

    that verse was too cold but damn it's gunna be a curse too. This nigga one of the most popular artists out right now and once all these kids hear this shit stanning of KDot is gunna be taken to a whole other level. Niggas on youtube already claiming KDot the GOAT cuz of the verse

    • sdffes

      WAY too early to put him near the top 10 but he's on his way, we'll see if he's still dope 5 albums into his career. Niggas going crazy over this verse cuz its rare to hear a popular artist spit something so ill, but that just shows how fucked up the game is right now. Don't be forgetting about Black Thought's verse on Bird's Eye View...

    • goat

      DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH THEM? where is he on the goat conversation?
