Kendrick Lamar appears to have dissed Meek Mill while performing in New York yesterday (September 10). The Compton rapper made a comment, likely referring to Meek Mill, while performing "m.A.A.d. city" in Williamsburg Park in Brooklyn, New York, according to Complex.com.
"That goes for new niggas," Kendrick Lamar said on stage. "But there's one. There's one that need to know there's really levels to this shit."
The comment is likely in reference to Meek Mill's song "Levels."
"Lil' nigga we don't rock the same clothes / Fuck the same hoes / 'Cause its levels to this shit," Meek says on "Levels." "Lil' nigga we don't drive the same whips / We don't fuck the same chicks / 'Cause it's levels to this shit / Lil' nigga we don't get the same paper / You a motherfuckin' hater / Boy, it's levels to this shit."
Soon after reports surfaced regarding these statements, Meek Mill sent a series of tweets about Kendrick Lamar.
King of what?
Somebody please tell me

Lamar mentioned Mill in his much-discussed verse from "Control."
"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."
"I do it for the streets," Meek Mill says on the song. "You do it for the niggas with the backpack / I do it for the niggas on the corner tryin' to make a meal ticket with a crack pack / Hold up, wait a minute, let me back track / Hov gave you 24, let you have that / Man, you claiming you the King of New York / What the fuck wrong with you nigga, snap back / Hundred shots, aimin' straight at your snap cap / Everybody want the crown 'til I snatch that / Heard your gun go doo-doo-doo-doo / Well, my gun go blap-blap-blap-blap-blap."
