Drake Says Kendrick Lamar "Is Not Murdering Me, At All"

Drake planning on being "extremely selective" with artists signed to OVO Sound, says Kendrick Lamar's "Control" was "an ambitious thought."

Few rappers have taken the solitary approach when it concerns Kendrick Lamar’s celebrated verse on Big Sean’s “Control,” but according to Canadian singer/rapper Drake, he simply “kept it moving” after hearing K-Dot’s raucous verse.

As part of a cover story for Billboard magazine, Drake spoke on the record numerous rappers have either responded to lyrically or voiced their opinion on via Twitter or in various media interviews.

The Young Money wordsmith went on to describe Kendrick’s verse as “an ambitious thought” and expressed his belief that the TDE rapper didn’t outdo him in any way.

"I didn't really have anything to say about it. It just sounded like an ambitious thought to me,” Drake revealed. “That's all it was. I know good and well that Kendrick's not murdering me, at all, in any platform. So when that day presents itself, I guess we can revisit the topic."

With his newly-launched OVO Sound, Drake also expressed his concern over issues that may arise when an artist is responsible for signing other artists.

"Being an artist that's signed to another artist, I understand how much of a representation I am of that artist," he explained. "So I want to be extremely selective. I want artists who are, first and foremost, genuinely good people who are good to be around, and second, who have pure talent and will make me look smart for signing them.”

Drake’s interview with Billboard magazine comes only weeks before the release of the rapper’s third studio album, Nothing Was The Same. Set for release on September 24, Nothing Was The Same will feature guest appearances from Jhene Aiko, 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, and more.

    stop drake not talented lets think on drake career from so far gone to now drake has come in this hip hop game and changed this game nobody aint did it like drake and i just noticed this shit after he dropped nothing was the same, after he made 5am in toronto i crown this nigga as the best we got now . kendrick lamar will never win a grammy . drake wins grammies . drakes a musician k.dot is just a rapper .

  • Shug

    As far as talent is concerned, K-dot is destroying you buddy... But I'll give you one thing, you have more fans-even though they are likely much much dumber.

  • darrel austin

    i lost respect for kendrick lamar, i didn't like how he pretended to be drakes friend just to get more popular, and then he turns around and disses drake for no reason, kendrick lamar cant be trusted, not after that stunt he pulled on drake

      you sound like a bitch

    • Bella

      You're so dumb! Kendrick wasn't pretending to be Drake's friend or exactly "dissing" him in the way you speak. He was simply saying he thinks he's the best, EVERY NIGGA THINK HE THE BEST. That's not being fake AT ALL. Schoolboy Q just had an interview where he said "what's wrong with Kendrick is that he isn't me." Drake is just too in his feelings, taking shit wayy t personal. Drake is relevant, he has the money but the talent isn't anywhere near Kdot's. If anything Drakes come back on The Language was low "your shit is not that inspiring" ummm ok drake. No artist that was called out by Kendrick was offended but Drakes pussy ass. The rest actually were impressed and flattered and only came back saying nah I'm better soo chill out

  • WinkDiggyFunkMasta

    I hope Drake knows that good kid, m.A.A.d. city is better than any has released. However, Drake is a great artist with a lot of talent and he has made some awesome songs. His first two albums are good as well. He doesnt have a GKMC under his belt though. He is a bigger star, has sold more albums, and has more money, but he can't mess with Kendrick on making a classic album. Nothing Was The Same is up there, but I will have to take a few more listens to determine if it truely compares to GKMC. Murdering? Maybe not. But 2012 was the year Kendrick. We'll see what the future holds for these guys.

    selling a lot of records means a lot of people like your music enough to buy it, and that means your music is good and that makes you a better artist ,long story short drake is way better than kendrick. drake does not talk about gangstar sh*t because he knows nothing about it like most of yall internet gangstars stop hating and if you hate him so much ehy do u read every article about him ask yourself you are just confused fans you dont get it why other people love him so much

    • Anonymous

      ",long story short drake is way better than kendrick." I stopped reading after that. You mean that guy from Degrassi is murdering Kdot? I do have respect for Drake but he is far from Kendrick's level.

    • Anonymous

      No. Selling a lot of records only means you're popular and that does not make your music good. Sales have nothing to do with music quality. By your flawed logic, MC Hammer is better than Nas because he sold more than him. Dumbass. You got it backwards; Kendrick is better than Drake. Kendrick makes real, introspective hip-hop music with substance and dope lyrics, Drake makes generic, radio-friendly pop-rap and R&B about money and sex like every other rapper out there. Hop off Drake's dick, Stanley Dicklick.

    "Both of you are retarded. Wow, you're still wrong about everything, bitch." You are either an annoying bridge resident troll who argues with other people and trolls to create an illusion or mockery of people who take the Internet to seriously by argue with yourself/others, or you are legitimately a fucking irate, wigger manchild. Perhaps you are a decoy troll and I am arguing with you just so you can make an example out of me and others (trolls and non-trolls). I think either you and other trolls are paid to comment and argue to get people coming back to HHDX, or you are all true lowlives. Or, you could all be the same pathetic hermit of a person. For now, I'm sure you're just a waste of space and I'm overthinking it with the possible scenarios. Either way, fuck off. P.S. - Another quote of yours: "Both of you are fucking idiots" "All of you are fucking idiots" "You're a fucking retard/idiot." "Wrong bitch, I'm NEVER wrong. My jackass butthole is too uptight and stubborn to admit it can be wrong. I sometimes when I talk out of my ass it stings from the buttfuck." BTW, Kendrick is a great artist, but he still has more to prove. GMKC and Section.80 were solid works of art, but only time will tell if they are true classic albums.

  • dentaldamboy

    Let me start by saying that I love Kendrick. I think Section .80 and GKMC are both great in their own right. If you want to go by strict lyricism I would have to agree that Kendrick is better. But rap is not all about lyricism. Rap is about being yourself. Rap is about providing a service to people who listen to your music. You want to know the reason why Champagne Papi is that dude? Cause he saved my life. Literally. Not a suicidal thing or nothing like that, but lets just say I needed Drake to survive. Call me a pussy all you want, but I know who and what I am. Drake makes music that anybody can relate to in my opinion. Drake is one of the few people in this game who dont give a fuck what you think about him. Drake is, plain and simple, that dude. The people that hate him will say he sucks and the people that love him will like it. But I guess thats the point. No artist in this game today can inspire so much hate/love at the same time as this guy, and theres no denying that. Peace.

  • wilderal

    In terms of style, delivery, Passion and flat out narcissism Drake takes it in every category, and not to mention he's just more talented overall. I will say this Kendrick is a pretty good MC, but there's more to rap than just stringing random words together, painting abstract pictures, making quirky sounds and using alien voices. Drake has mastered the art of hip hop hubris and message delivery.

    • DK

      Kendrick would give all the rappers you named a run for their money.

    • Joe

      Na, Kendrick is more than a pretty good MC. You need to go look at his lyrics on GKMC and Section 80. He's got a message. And his delivery is insane. Look up Rigamortous. Then give me one song Drake has RAPWISE that comes close to competing with anything from Kendrick. You start talking about his voice I'm giving up on humanity. Did you hear Drake at the VMA's? No touch of autotune and mastering to hide behind, Drake is your average singer. And I'm not talking average professional singer. I'm talking average person that sings every once in awhile who has an ok voice. That's it. Drizzy got swag, and I don't hate him, but he's in a completely different lane than Kendrick. End of story.

    • Anonymous

      You really see all that in Drake??... He's really not THAT talented. He's a decent rapper, average singer. Soft as fuck too. He sells mostly because he's a pretty boy with a huge female fan base and he makes songs that cater to them. He's in NO WAY a great MC. Neither is Kendrick. But that's beside the point. A great MC are people like Rakim, Kane, G Rap, Nas, Inspectah Deck, etc. Drake is not on that level nor will he ever be.

    "guess this dude thinks Vanilla Ice is top 10 because of sales" If sales didn't matter they wouldn't keep track of them. Nobody was talking about Vanilla Ice, but since your bitch ass did, he sold 20 million albums. Could you do that? Not in a million years.

    • Anonymous

      Sales matter to the company and artist, but these days we have fanboys like you that associate yourself with numbers to validate who you listen to. Your comments either start or end with numbers and that's why you have absolutely zero credibility when you speak. As soon as someone says something about Ross, you bring up Forbes net worth or worldwide sales. You never speak on the actual music. You're the type of person who watches who's #1 in soda sales, so you can feel big when you walk around sipping it. Type of guy thinking he special holding a bottle of Fiji water, like that brand of water makes you top dawg. So again, sales matter to pussies like you. Such the consummate groupie stargazer and UOENO. lol

      only a stupid ass kid would say that shit here ever heard off selling out and he signed to a massive label his sales dont mean shit they spend soo much on publicity that hes destined to sale not because hes the best rapper because hes a commercial nikelodeon rapper and is a children icon grown hip hop heads dont bump that shit we cant stand that shit so either you 14 or theres a big bitch in you.

    "damn,drake's been getting a big mouth lately. Talking all reckless about the common situation and what not..... dude you soft, stay in your lane!!!" Exactly.. this silver spoon in his mouth, raised by a rich White mom clown is talking all types of reckless. He's trying to play tough now, saying he's bringing the "attitude" on this album when we all know he's a cream puff. He wasn't talking this tough when niggas robbed him at gunpoint in his own city a few years back. He was talking then.. but it was to the police when he reported it. Kendrick murders Drake lyrically and musically which is really all that counts. Sure Drake has more money, exposure and female fans, but that doesn't count for much as far as being a great artist. Kendrick has TWO classic albums already.. Drake has none.

And it's not like I got butthurt over the responses people made to control. I just don't like that Drake is talking about it all seriously and like acting like he's the shit. It's pure cockiness. MAking a response, that's confidence. Saying oh he's not murdering me on any platform, that's cockiness. And that kinda cockiness isn't being backed up. And to look at just sales as what matters is pure bullshit. There are so many underground artists who aren't making money that are better than almost every single mainstream artist out there.

    • comeonson

      first of all, music is subjective..so your opinions really dont matter. someone can think waka flocka is the best, and you have no choice to respect that..so trying to say kendrick has drake beat on anything is dumb. second, platform does not mean "flow, artistry, etc" think sales, arena tours, the markets drake reaches, stuff like that..those are platforms. drake has more appeal, which is WHY he has more money. facts only, stop getting emotional like you know these men personally..end of the day, they are all friends and its only music.

    I understand all the lyricism and all that bullshit, but at the end of the day, hip hop is about entertainment - not just lyricism or battle rapping. I'm a big Kendrick fan, but I get bored pretty easily when I listen to his songs, while on the other hand, if I am listening to Drake or Big Sean or whatever, I could go on longer.

    • Joe

      Saying hip hop is just entertainment makes you another piece of shit that is ruining hip hop. Hip hop is a culture. Do your fucking homework man, damn. Hip hop is art. And saying its just entertainment shits all over the artistry of it. That's why the radio today has all bullshit.. and guess what, drake's music is saturating that bullshit

    • No one Is Entitled to their own opinion anymore.

      @Anon2, I'm pretty sure he already knows that dummy. It's laughable how upset you K.dot stans get when someone says they don't like him. IMHO, I think he's a pretty good artist, but overrated with lots of saddle-up style horse cockriders hittin' shit from the back. Just last week someone said that Life After Death by Biggie wasn't a classic, and all the Biggie stans get pissed off like you guys did. Again, all crazy stans act the same.

      "Anonymous: Someone's a little mad, your faggot ass, is really stepping up to bat for these shitty female rappers." Thank you young fuckboi. You've just fully admitted that you have a bias toward female MCs and rappers. That's all I wanted to know. See, it's one thing to have bias, but it's another thing to be arrogant with your personal prejudice. And due to your bias, your close-mindedness clouds you from seeing any possible skill any of them they may have. And you call others "faggots" (ironic) if they like any skilled or average rapper with a pussy and some estrogen. You bait to solely hyper-masculine rappers I bet. But hey, they could very well be closet faggots too. Also, I'm mad because dumbfucks like you let bias continue. You idiot fans and stans are fucking up the hip hop genre in various ways anyway, both with and without prejudice. But hey, I'm going to keep this post short and sweet. No need into getting into a tirade again into make my point. After all, there's no cure stupidity.

    • The ONLY RETARD HERE is YOU......

      I listened to their music little fucktard faggot, and they were not as terrible as Lil' Wayne and artists of today when THEY were in THEIR PRIME. They might suck more now, but they still aren't nearly as bad as people Soulja Boy, Rich Homie Quan, and OJ tha Juiceman, Future, J-Kwon, and Young Scooter. Clean out your shit-infested ears you idiot bitch and re-listen. Give one reason why you think they suck. Is it because they aren't lyrical enough for you? Or maybe you don't take female rappers in high regard. But regardless, your opinion is invalid because of this. You're sincerely a fucking RETARD if you still think they belong on this list. They are average rappers, but they aren't horrible rappers, dumb cunt. Might as well resort to putting people like modern-day Jay-Z or modern-day Eminem, modern-day Run DMC, modern-day Ludacris, all simplistic rappers from the 80s during the infancy of rap, and other rappers/vets who fell off according to your views because they aren't as good as they used to be either. Not too many people agree with you here.

    • These Stupid Ass Kids on the Site pretending to be Hip Hop Heads

      @ Anon1, are you serious? You are fucking blind and/or deaf if you think Lil' Kim and Foxy Brown are terrible rappers, belong on your list, and are worse than Drake. GTFOHWTBS! Not all female rappers suck. Ever heard of Rah Digga? MC Lyte? Roxanne Shante? Queen Latifah? Hell, Miss Elliot & Trina? Come on! Foxy and Kim are the only two who don't belong on your bullshit list and can outrap a lot of these shitty ass rappers today both on and off your very list of "artists" you named. Lil' Kim isn't as good as she used to be (like a lot of rappers such as Eminem, Jay-Z, and Kanye nowadays) and had ghostwriters, but her on her worse day is better than some of these rappers on their best days, and that alone speaks volumes on how far we have fallen. Shit, Eminem and Nas on their worst days are almost, if not on par with Kendrick on his best alone. This generation of hip hop has a full recovery to complete.

    • You are a fucking joke.

      "Both of you are retarded. Wow, you're still wrong about everything, bitch." You are either an annoying bridge resident troll who argues with other people/trolls to create an illusion or mockery of people who take the Internet to seriously by argue with yourself/others, or you are legitimately a fucking irate, wigger manchild. Perhaps you are a decoy troll and I am arguing with you just so you can make an example out of me and others (trolls and non-trolls). I think either you and other trolls are paid to comment and argue to get people coming back to HHDX, or you are all true lowlives. Or, you could all be the same pathetic hermit of a person. For now, I'm sure you're just a waste of space and I'm overthinking it with the possible scenarios. Either way, fuck off. P.S. - Another quote of yours: "Both of you are fucking idiots" "All of you are fucking idiots" "You're a fucking retard/idiot." "Wrong bitch, I'm NEVER wrong. My jackass butthole is too uptight and stubborn to admit it can be wrong. I sometimes when I talk out of my ass it stings from the buttfuck."

  • Drake runs rap

    heres the proof you delusional haters. drake runs rap: 1) Age has a lot to do with it if you are young and stay consistent your fan base grows you sell more you break records you grow larger and more established 2) How many hot new artists since 2005 have came and had a big impact as drake in hiphop? How many have went double platinum and had countless hit songs like drake? no body 3) Who else in the rap game has a the buzz drake has right now? Drake is everywhere on the radio on youtube his songs get the highest views most dounloads he is the 1 talked about by mainstream music fans 4)Drake has officially set the record for most number one singles (10 total) on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Chart. And it appears that he has 2 Chainz to thank as their collaboration, "No Lie," just hit topped the chart. With this news, Drizzy passes previous record holder, Jay-Z, who had nine chart-topping cuts. Below is a breakdown of the top four artists in this realm. And just to note: the total number, like Drizzy's 10, for example, includes both his own tracks and those he appeared on as a guest. 1. Drake [2009] - 10 (3 Lead, 7 Collaborations) 2. Jay-Z [1995] - 9 (4 Lead, 5 Collaborations) 3. Lil Wayne [1999] - 8 (3 Lead, 5 Collaborations) 4. Kanye West [2003] - 6 (3 Lead, 3 Collaborations) There you go in 4 years he has had more chart topping hits than jay z and the rest of the vets so you are the 1 claiming false. 5)Drake sold 700k in the first week last album he dropped and he has gotten more popular eminem is a vet in the game but he has lost his buzz 6)Drake secures the Number 19 spot on the "Top 50 Worldwide Tours" list thanks to his Club Paradise Tour.Other artists featured on the Top 50 Worldwide Tours list include Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber, and The Black Keys.

      So you're basically saying, "Drake's the best because he's the most pop?(ular)" Are you for real?

    • Anonymous

      all you've shown is he is the king of pop rap. thats not an impressive feat at all! very few rappers who top the charts actually possess any real skills lyrically. all the record sells and popularity cant make up for the fact that he is a mediocre at best rhymer. it would be a more impressive if the nigga grew some nuts and step up to kendrick and smash him. even the biggest chart topping rappers in history like eminem, jay, pac and biggie engaged in rap battles on wax. drake looks like a pussy if he continues to claim hes the best but ducks and dodge every rapper who calls him out

  • Drake runs rap

    Its a fact that cant be denied that drake is the face of rap right now. No1 else has the buzz or the hype drake does right now. kendrick can never measure up to drake. If you deny your just a delusional fairy tale believer. 1)Drake has the most number 1 hits at the age of 26 2) No other artist from the new wave of rappers goes double platinum like drake does 3) Drake is breaking a lot of records and he hasn't even reached 30 yet 4) Drake is the face of rap everyone listens to rap for drake 5)Drake is the only 1 capable to go platinum first weak these days and drake will go down as the greatest of all time when its all said and done 6)Drakes tours are the highest selling out of all rappers drake runs rap its a fact stop denying.

    Interesting that he responded this way. He clearly doesn't want to show any love for kendrick's verse and the conception behind it. At the same time, althought he says he know good and well kendrick can't kill him, he doesn't want to lyrically and musicially respond back to him (almost as if he is hesistant of doing it at all to prove kendrick can't infact kill him). Well, drake should of explained what he meant when he says kendrick cant kill him. Does he mean in terms of lyrical capabilites or does he mean in terms of popularity and record sells?? If drake means the latter, then sure thats true. However, if drake means the former...ah, unless he is holding back some amazing rhyming skills that most hip hop heads aren't aware of and skills that he is holding back from the public at large, i can confidently say, based off the known drake records so far, i highly doubt drake could kill kendrick let alone keep up with k. dot bar for bar. Not sure if dude is delusional or he is hiding his true talents as a lyricist, but hes gonna have to do better than this half-baked response to convince the real hip hop heads that kendrick is incapable of murdering drake. Drake, step up to kendrick if this is true, otherwise, you just a nigga with a highly inflated-ego who wont even have to balls to back himself up and prove yourself as a serious mc and not just a simple ass pop rapper

Drake can make music that certain groups like and thats fine but he is basically the Justin Beiber of rap IMO (I will admit he was probably the best on Fuck'n Problems but every dog has its day... and even that day wasn't that good as Kdot really seemed to just throw some bullshit together). He should be watching who he is trying to beef with... Lamar is not Brown, he has some real skill and a battle with Kendrick would hurt Drakes... whatever he calls it.. career I guess.

  • conspiracy theory??

    I may be looking into it too much but Drakes choice of words when he describes how he is going to choose his artist and what the artist should represent, kinda gives off the impression that his tenure at young money/cash money has about run its course and he didnt have a great experience there...just saying...and he is a little to confident on his skill vs K.

      So you are calling Em out for what he said on a record about "Hating fags", which he addressed as entertainment and nothing more, but then he does a record with Elton John so he is not Gucci... you clown ass idiot. First off why are upset that Em is not a asshole bigot? The guy rapped with a musical legend... that is that who gives a fuck about his orientation you homophobe. On top of that Gucci couldn't do Eminems laundry now let alone claim to be a better artist and that is now... while Ems career is a big ?. If you look at Em at the beginning Gucci should be lucky to be mentioned in the same breath as Eminem. As for Cube... you really have your head so far up Guccis dick hole that you are gonna compare him to a legend like Cube. If you ever listened to Cubes music he never claimed to bang... he talked about crazy shit in his hood and he talk about doing some dumb shit which is plausible being from that hood... if he got beat down in school so fucking what... lotta kids do... lotta kids change when they leave school too.
