Lord Jamar Says Drake Is A Better Talent Than Kendrick Lamar

Lord Jamar encourages Drake and Kendrick Lamar to battle each other to "show and prove."

After several public statements about Drake throughout 2013, Lord Jamar recently spoke with VladTV and told the site that the perceived beef between the Toronto rapper and Kendrick Lamar should result in a battle.

“I mean, shit, ya’ll niggas, go ahead and battle,” Lord Jamar said. “Why not? Like, ya’ll got some sort of emcee beef? Then battle, you know what I mean? ‘Cause that’s all it could be, ya’ll are not tough guys and all of that where you’re gonna need to be fighting and all that type of shit. That shit is corny anyway. So, you both feel like ya’ll some sort of lyrical prodigies and all that, show and prove.”

When questioned about who he thinks would win the hypothetical battle between Drake and Kendrick Lamar, Lord Jamar favored the Nothing Was The Same rapper. “You know, I’m gonna be honest, I’m more acquainted with Drake’s lyrics than I am of Kendrick’s lyrics. He be saying some shit. Almost always kills it. I might have to fuck with Drake. I might have to go with Drake. And it ain’t about light-skin," Jamar said with a laugh, "it’s just I’m a little more acquainted with his shit. I don’t know, yeah, I think I would go with Drake. Send me some more of Kendrick’s shit maybe I’ll change my mind later.“

Lord Jamar’s interview with VladTV ended with the Brand Nubian emcee siding with his interviewer in the view that Drake is a better all-around talent. “Probably all around, he probably is,” Lord Jamar said. “At the end of the day that’s what it’s about," he said, referencing an artist's ability to make songs. "It’s not about how well you can rhyme, to me it’s about making songs too. You got rappers and you got songwriters, and not all rappers are good songwriters. That’s why a lot of these freestyle dudes and battle dudes, they can’t really make a song to save they life.”

In December, Lord Jamar told VladTV that neither Drake or Kendrick Lamar represent the type of “Alpha male shit” required of Hip Hop performers in the ‘80s and ‘90s. “Drakes and your fucking Kendrick Lamars and all these softer type of dudes. [Drake], he can rhyme and all that, but trust me, he wouldn’t have popped off in the ‘80s or ‘90s. Dudes would have looked at him as too soft.” He later clarified his position by adding that he thinks Drake is a talented rapper. “I think he can rhyme his ass off,” Lord Jamar said. "He got a nice singing voice and all of that, but does he represent the Alpha males? No. Is he the type you could see on the block runnin’ some shit? No. Was he one of those dudes running around the hood and got his name ringing bells and all that shit? No.”

    We cant even really compare Drake and Kendrick because they both have a completely different style. Their both talented ,however Drake talks about relationships, while Kendrick talks about his past struggles, Compton, and even about peer pressure. Kendrick can talk about both his relationships and the hardships with growing up in Compton because he has experienced both. Drake on the other hand is a talented singer and rapper who cant talk about those same hardships because he didn't experience it. I take offense just as much offense when people call Kendrick a weirdo as when people call Drake soft. And fyi those aren't valid arguments those are bias statements that have nothing to do with each artists talent.

  • Strong Island Capo

    Kendrick Lamar will continue having a good career, only if he sticks to making music and leaves the lyrical beefs alone. Drake is strictly known for making good music and doesn't have to use another rapper's name nor fame for financial gain. Ken isn't as good as he is being touted. I honestly think that The Game and Nipsey Hussle are much better than him.

  • jimmy

    so basically he fucks with drake cause he knows his music, maybe he needs to listen to kendrick before he states who he thinks will win

  • whiteboy

    kendrick is mad overrated

    • No

      No he isn't, stop hating, the allegory, double/triple entendres, complex wordplay and rhyming schemes he uses different flows and alterations to his rap tones to adapt to any kind of beat, he is not overrated, he's an elite rapper, I would say he is only overrated slightly in terms of lyrics, he's the best MC out right now and one of the most relatable and authentic.

      Yes, he definitely is overated and nothing but a fad. I remember when Xhibit and Ras Kass went platinum with Dre. Kendrick ain't no different. Dre is like the transmission and his artists are the tires and rims. In other words Dr Dre stands the test of time, but those artists like Ken are a dime a dozen. All of those artist were made into millionaires by Dre regardless of their longevity.

    I've come to accept that Drake just isn't a battle rapper and will never battle a single person. He will drop sneak disses and that's about it. I'll never get the chance to see Drake get served. He, like others, will make claim to be the best rapper, but he will never battle another rapper for us to truly see. That seems to be the new trend with these current rappers as well.

      @ anonymous: Let me guess, you did a wikipedia search to find out who he is, saw the chart positions of their albums, then made a judgement about how good they were as a group. First, album sales don't mean shit for how good / bad a musician is. Let's not forget that MC Hammer went Diamond. Second, Brand Nubian's first album was one of their least successful efforts in terms of sales, but if you look back at any hip hop critic, or ask any real hip hop head from the golden era, and they will tell you the album is near flawless. It was one of the first albums to get 5 Mics back when the ratings actually meant something.

      How do you know that neither dude would make it in the 80's or 90's. Kendrick got bars. Drake....well I'm not a Drake fan and can't bring myself to listen to his music for than 5 seconds. But I'm told that he has bars *shrugs*. But their flows and styles are from the 2000's. If they had been born sooner, then their flows and styles would of been closer to Ice Cube and Kurupt for Kendrick. For Drake, being from Toronto, I'd probably say more of an East Coast style like Biggie and Jay-Z.

    If you owned a label and wanted a talented artist to build your label around would you pick the guy who can make hit songs that appeal to a wide demographic of makes, females young and old or the weird nerdy hipster Black guy that gets really lyrical in his songs? Give me the kid Drake with his velvet voice, bi-racial looks and ability to sing catchy hooks that get soccer moms and their teen daughters wet...... Sure Kendrick is more traditional HipHop but his music cant translate worldwide where little Bolivian girls are reciting his lyrics. The same hippies that praise the Kendrick nerd for his "concept" album will turn on him when they find a new trendy negro to follow, it happens all the time with these flavor of the month gimmicky rappers who are hot untill something else hot comes along.

    • Anonymous

      You really are an idiot. Everything you just said is a bunch of bullshit. Again, Kendrick is better because he can rap better, he writes better songs, and his shit has meaning. Drake, however, is the epitome of a pop-rapper. Average lyrics, terrible singing, and repetitive, one-dimensional songs. Sure, he has more hits, but that doesn't make you a better artist. Your last paragraph is a joke, calling Kendrick a "flavor of the month gimmicky rapper," dude is the farthest thing from a gimmick and he's been famous for over a year. That should tell you something. He's not like Trinidad James, Migos, or Sage The Gemini who come and go. Dude has talent and everyone in the industry recognizes that.

      The people you mentioned had a balance and/or versatility to their shit and most made sure the first song you heard was a hard song that can showcase their skills and dj like Kane first solo joint was "Raw", ll cool j "I need a beat" then the love joints were found in the album, so it's not the same. Even Brand Nubian with Lord Jamar had "Love me or leave me alone" but that wasn't their first joint. You could debut with "Best I ever had" and think there was gonna more of a career after that.

Like you said, there are great singers and rappers who did not win a grammy. You, on the other hand, would dickride k dot or macklemore, who sees you as an atm.

      That's bullshit, dentalbitch. You're not prepared for a Drake loss, especially when you're begging God to give him the award. And that last sentence describes your comments, not mine. You should name yourself Ass Backwards because that's how you think, ass backwards.

      No, I would not lose it if drake lost. I'm actually prepared for a drake loss, BTW. And no, your comments are copy paste bullshit.

      dentlabitch, you're not fooling anyone. If anyone's predictable, it's you plagiarizing other people's comments and claim them as your own. At least my comments are original. And again, I would congratuate them and move on while you go bananas. You got caught, dentalbitch.

      How would you know that I would go insane? You live with me at home? You follow me around at work? You don't know me nigga and you will never know me. I would be the one congraulating them while you would go insane. And I know because you are becoming predictable on this site, including taking my comments and editing them for yourself. You want cheerleaders, go after dentalboy or Bruthadee.

      I didn't copy-paste shit. You're actually taking my old comments and editing them for your sake. And, no. Everything you just said, you got backwards. I would congratulate Kendrick and Macklemore if they win while you would just sit there and say nothing. If Drake would win, you'd go bat-shit insane, dickriding him non-stop while he doesn't even know you while I wouldn't care.

      Now you're just copying and pasting my posts and switching them names around. I would be the one congraulating drake (hell, I would congraulate K Dot and Macklemore as well if either of them wins, not that they are good rappers but still I would congratulate out of respect). You would act calm if drake wins (although you would feel like losing it) , but go hysterical, cheerleading k dot or macklemore if they win, dickriding them to exhaustion without them actually knowing you exist.

      No, I won't. I'll just congratulate their win and move on with my life. You, on the other hand, would lose it when Drake wins (which, again, won't happen) and no one will hear the last of it. You're dickriding Drake like his accolades benefit you when it doesn't. You don't believe anything you say.

    • Anonymous

      And you're gonna dickride macklemore and k dot like them winning a grammy benefits you when it actually doesn't. Yet when drake wins, you will say that grammy's don't mean shit. I at least know that they are just awards and not lifesavers.

      Oh, the fucking irony. You can't be talking about people dickriding people when you're riding Drake's dick right now and he doesn't give a shit about you.

    Dear HipHopDX, I hope the number of hits on your website start to continually drop until you stop talking about this fucking idiot.

  • I'm Confused

    As to why I keeo having to see this mans face in the top headlines of this website. Why is a third string rapper on a third rate rap group getting his opinion showcased on what is supposed to be a leading hip hop blog? Why don't you guys start featuring more editorials than this garbage? Hip Hop is now 40 years young, do some articles on that. The 20 year anniversary of "I Used To Love H.E.R" is this year. Talk about if Commons words still ring true in todays hip hop wold. Stop doing articles about a Never Was and his irrelevant opinions. Whichever dinosaur you have running this site needs to let go of his Brand Nubian fanboyism and let some real journalism in. Thank You

    "Is that a joke? Drake is not gonna win the Grammy" That's what you said last year. And when Drake won, you said that grammy's don't mean shit. If drake wins again, you would say that grammy's don't mean shit but if k dot or macklemore wins, you will say that the grammy's mean everything to them. Even you bitching about k dot and macklemore losing if drake wins would be a better response than being hypocritical.

      If K Dot or macklemore wins, you will be on their nuts saying that its the best thing that could ever happen. If drake wins, you will say that the grammys don't matter. Even you bitching that k dot or macklemore didn't win would be a better response than doing a 180.

      This time is different. Drake's not going to win the Grammy, either Kendrick or Macklemore will. Since they're nominated in the GF Field and Drake isn't, their chances of winning are higher.

    • Richie

      If Drake or Macklemore win in the best rap album category over Kendrick, than the mentioning of how relevant the grammies mean have to come up. They do mean something, but not everything.

  • Lo

    Who cares what this stupid clown says,his option means as much as the shit I took this morning!Hiphopdx needs to stop posting him on all articles,there is a lot more interesting stuff...and if they continue I am done with them as well....it's very annoying.

  • BigD

    He's spot on with this quote "Its not about how well you can rhyme, to me its about making songs too. You got rappers and you got songwriters, and not all rappers are good songwriters. Thats why a lot of these freestyle dudes and battle dudes, they cant really make a song to save they life.

  • hek718

    He definitely didnt hear that verse on Nosetalgia... and both of them rap better than Jamar. He need to make some music.

  • Eye Control

    Am I the only one that sees how Lord Jamal is biting Asap Rocky by calling himself a Lord? Everyone knows the Asap Mob calls themselves lords. Asap Rocky also goes by Lord Flacko. Now I keep hearing about all these new guys like Lord Jamal and Lord Infamous, calling themselves lords. Really? I'm surprised Rocky hasn't called them out yet for not paying homage. Jamal is a hater who'll never make it because he doesn't have half the looks of Pretty Flacko.

      CANT YOU READ? I mean, shit, yall niggas, go ahead and battle, Lord Jamar said. Why not? Like, yall got some sort of emcee beef? Then battle, you know what I mean? Cause thats all it could be, yall are not tough guys and all of that where youre gonna need to be fighting and all that type of shit. That shit is corny anyway. So, you both feel like yall some sort of lyrical prodigies and all that, show and prove.

    You hypocrites will say that K Dot deserves the highest honors if he wins the grammy but will also say that grammy's don't mean shit if drake wins. Drake will win the grammy but even if he doesn't, its not the end of the world and he is still a far better rapper and singer than k dot.

  • Not Impressed

    Drake has catchy choruses, but his lyrics are extremely simplistic and Kendrick Lamar tries to be complex, but comes across as a pseudo-intellectual imbecile. It's sad that these are the rappers we have to debate about now. Hiphop really is in a terrible state. I'm not impressed

    • KiiNG J

      Man, I've been trying to find the words to describe Kendrick Lamar's style and just couldn't quite articulate it properly. Thank you for an excellent analysis of that clown Ken. He like that character on the movie "Don't Be A Menace While Drinking Your Juice", that's in jail trying to sound all deep talking about "red fish equal blue fish" lol.

    • No

      What? Agree with you on the drake part, completely disagree with your view on kendrick lamar.

  • yeaaahh

    Oh, you niggas were nodding your heads and agreeing with Jamar until he said this. LOL. Got you all upset! BOTH are great artists with two different styles, but Drake IS the better writer.. I wish annoying ass fans and the media would stop trying to turn this into beef or whatever..

    Why does DX even put this stuff up. Dont nobody care about what some washed up has been, has got to say. He's just talking shit trying to become relevant again. Dude was talking shit about white rappers and then back tracked, talking bout "these the white cats i fuck with". Notice no other Brand Nub's saying anything. Let your music speak for you not your crackhead interviews.

  • @tonybakercomedy

    So Lord Jamar just put Kendrick in a battle rapper category. Has he not heard Kendrick's "Section .80" or "GKMC" Those are SONGS on those project. Come on man. Kendrick has a battle cadence and a story telling cadence. If you are unfamiliar with one side of something when you are comparing things then your take on it obsolete. It sounds like he's not familiar with Kendrick's body of work.

  • Yo

    GKMC>NWTS, Section 80>Take Care, Overly Dedicated>Thank Me Later, Kendrick Lamar EP>So far Gone, Kendrick Lamar>Drake, it's not even close, "Lord" Jamar, Drake as an MC is the pinnacle of mediocrity, the same one dimensional subject matter and lyrical content, consistently stealing flows and lyrics(rappin 4 tay-players club) and oversaturates his verses with terrible quotables and bars, "last name greatest, first name ever/ like a sprained boy I ain't nothing to play with" Drake is so average it's laughable, he's very basic, like big sean basic.

    it's too bad Drakes too scared to battle

  • Frosty

    This guys is annoying as fuck, why are his comments constantly appearing here? Who gives a fuck about this lames opinion? Drake was too soft for the 80's and 90's? What like De La Soul wasn't soft? LL coming with "I need love", all those acts were respected and had no issue coexisting with gangsta rap. This dude needs to fuck off.

    • Anonymous

      De la Soul used to open for NWA and invented the album skit. Yeah they were gimmicky but they didn't sing about the shit Drake sings about, shit they just didn't sing they were conscious rappers trying to stand out from PE and KRS. Plus the word was Maseo was not one to fuck with. LL well he created that lane for Drake but he would battle anybody, Drake is scared to battle. So try somebody else and still there are more soft rappers now than then. Can't deny that.

  • OUCH!

    This dude has to be hi or drunk in this interview cause nothing made sense! lol

  • Possible outcome

    Lord Jamar will pick Drake to win the battle til he finds out his momma white.
