    Good song but kendirick didnt kill jay-z. He will never drop a album like resanoult doubt or blueprint. Kendrickrs album is ok but not a classic. jay is the king of new your.

  • Strategy

    Ok so Kendrick killed it, Jay was dope too, but yeah Kendrick kilt it.

  • Cain

    dope remix but how many more urinal/piss metaphors do we have to endure?!?!

  • godfrey

    This song is off the chain kendrick killed jay Z 10 Stars

    Watch this dude out of Toronto destroy Drake's 5AM in Toronto...does not disappoint http://youtu.be/pr-t2okXzu4

  • ThatsAllThereIsTooIt

    Kendrick > Em More poetic. Better vocab. More soul.

  • FaceIt

    JT called JZ a "HO" on Suit & Tie. There was no "V". Since they sound so close you think he'd annunciate the "V". He called him a "HO" on purpose. The 20/20 experiment. The all seeing eye. C'mon.

  • Big Bad Uno Ocho Gang, E'z up!

    Check it out, two clown ass putos on a track together.

  • lol

    the sick thing is Jay actually tried here Lotta people say he was cruising on Renegade (not true) but here he knows Kendrick is hot, and he wants to not get blown out Kendrick maybe number 2 to Emzo now

  • lol

    When the HELL is Kendrick gonna team with Eminem ??? Cmon Dre, you want amazing ? Get those 2 on a collabo album Hell, Rap may actually make a comeback if that happened

    underground hip hop the best if kendrick stayed underground and kept the tru essence of hiphop i could say he the best but as of right now he just another drake rapper

    • Anonymous

      Love Kendrick, but as long as J is dropping nobody has a chance to be the best out...Even though Kendrick bested him on the track!

    • 4000

      thats the dumbest shit ive ever hear all kendrick ever did was make great music and u dont like him cus his passion made him rich. thats some dumb nigga shit thats why its so hard for a nigga to prosper. if he makes good music support him regardless of how much he sells cus he's still true to himself and giving us better music than anyone else in the game right now

  • Anonymous

    KRS-One: "I told Wayne to his face, he's the dopest MC out" Eminem: "Wayne, to me, is defiinitely one of the greatest in the game" Jay-Z: "Wayne is one of the most talented rappers out there" So should I listen to KRS-One, Eminem, and Jay-Z, or should I listen to some broke loser on the Internet? I like how all of the people who hate Lil wayne come to and search for his videos to talk shit about them. Lil Wayne may not act like it but he is capable of making good music. LONG LIVE WEEZY!

    • Oz. F

      Who ever hates on Wayne now obviously hasn't heard the mixtapes he was puttin out from 04' - '09 Weezy created the stream of consciousness rap no body was doin that then. Dedication 1 and 2 The drought 2 and 3, the drought is over. And these are all post Carter 2

    • lol

      actually fans prob know more than other rappers..other rappers dont listen to eachothers shit much. fans listen 2 everything ..when ur good you geto jayz/eminem/k.dot praise and when u suck ..well uget gucci and 2chainz praise lol 2chainz atleast swags the song out so it sells.. ps cosign whoever said just cuz weezy is a brandname and a star doesnt mean he nice.. theres mad ballers out there who are good enuff 2 be footballers or basketballers but when u put em next to lebron james's youll lose each time

      Drake is not an MC; he's an R&B singer.

    • Anonymous

      Just because Wayne is a star doesn't mean he's good. That's the stupidest argument I've ever heard. The ONLY reason Wayne has any credibility in my eyes is because of the Carter II, real talk. He either needs to quit soon or come out with something other than punchlines on a barely decent beat.

    • Aaron Rochelle

      Did this dude say nelly had a better career..bout I heard it all..youcan not SERIOUS think that Wayne is not one of the greatest EVER not along the BIGGEST star in rap....

    • jc

      Wanye? he only has two good albums (one which is a classic) In my opinion, Nelly had a better career than Wanye. Wayne is done. K Lamar and Drake are the hottest MC's. J-Cole needs a good album to be considered in the top. He is stilling living off his reputation my his two classic mixtapes. Wanye album will determine his legacy. He is living off the Cater II rep.

    When I see K. Dot detractors, I understand why Hip Hop's sucked so long. Get over your nostalgia, niggas. Certain young niggas are crushing the game. Elevating it, rather. They SHOULD be better than some of the current "greats". If not, how would the shit grow?

    sellout....? To what my dude....it's a money game. These rap cats are at work when they make this music that you give you worthless opinion to. Do you work for free? When you work your way out of the projects in a place where most of your friends don't make it to 25, become a successful entrepreneur etc. etc. you probably won't give two shits if a Internet commentator called you a sellout. Until then work your way from the mop to the fries.......

Jay is so real to fade if you thinking its easy do it your fucking self or your best rapper should do it.. All u fools can't wait to see jay fall but am sorry even if he does he will land on a bunch of $ no you bitch gat nothing on him... Puffy, master p and all had more cash than jay, why did the radio, industry and all play their artist since you fools blame it on money... Jay is better then your best rapper present because the retired and come back to the game and still on top that means the just pass them twice.. Dem this hommie is real magic he does things black minds can't imagine. First they tag him illuminati, he gave birth that called his daughter the sapient now they say his use people to stay relevant... Whats all this for, a nigger try to make history since black people can't invent shit but black minds won't let him be. When WTT dropped they said it was shit and kanye helped the album becaue they never will understand the working of jay's underworld flow... How is cruel summer doing since kanye is involve. Jay said just the sound of his voice is a hit and as long as that is true he will keep shitting on any rapper till he gives up the mic to who ever he wish any you bitch can and will never do shit about it than come here to say the real thing a man is doing is virtual to your little brains.

    Royce da 5'9" and Fredro Starr of Onyx both describe Jay-Z's emphasis on flow in the book How to Rap Starr says that Jay-Z is "a master of the flowhe can flow fast, he can flow slow".[92] The book describes how Jay-Z uses 'rests' to provide structure to a verse[93] and how he uses 'partial linking' to add more rhymes to a verse.[94] Jay-Z's early style is described by Vibe as "a distinctly Das EFX-type, stiggety style" on his 12" single "Can't Get With That",[95] referring to the fast rhythms and vocal delivery of the group Das EFX. He is also known to write lyrics in his head, as described by Pusha T of Clipse in How to Rap,[96] a style popular with many MCs such as The Notorious B.I.G.,[96] Everlast,[97] Bobby Creekwater[98] and Guerilla Black.[98] Shock G of Digital Underground describes Jay-Z's performance style, saying he "rarely breaks a sweat, and instead uses smoothness and clever wordplay to keep the audience interested and entertained."[99] i heard better flow than jay - z

    kendrick is on another level than any rapper in the game. he is a true lyricist. dope remix 5/5. Man this ish makes me anticipate a callabo with eminem. in my opinion the two best (kendrick & em) lyricists in the game all time.

  • Hiphop Head

    A lesson on hiphop for all those wit lop-sided opinions. "u will never be Jay nevr be snoop, never Nas nor Dre" folks hav to learn how to listen to music not jus hear it off first listen in think they understand something they know nothing about. Im a fan of hip hop have been since i can remember. Jay Z is the greatest rapper alive. u dont agree thats "your opinion" not a "FACT". numbers dont lie, check the stats. Jay been there and done that and still doing it at a high fucking level. A global level that 90% of these rappers will never experience in their carrers. He talks big boy money shit cuz that exactly what he is. A boss and leader of the hiphop community. He makes it cool for rappers to go from the block to the corporate office and rub shoulders with the white house with out selling out or getting lazy musicly like alot of rappers tend to do after so many years in the game. U hav to respect Jay Z, classic after record breaking game changing classic. Everybody who is "somebody" in the game wants to vibe with Jay Z cuz thats who they aspire to be 20yrs later. Why cant Jay Z be 40 and still make music thats relevant and STILL be hot like he is. He is consistant bcuz he is 100% honest and real from beginning to end and still grinding. Go on a WORLD tour, not jus in the U.S. or your local college campus and arena. But WORLD tour and SELLOUT the venue. Cuz he is consistent and hot at every level of the game, lyriaclly, albums, production, CEO, marketing, everything!! And that aint on no dick riding shit thats a FACT. If u a true fan of hiphop then u know what i mean. Kendrick is a tru fan his music is dope and he is raising the bar for new rappers. So stop hating without admitting the truth. Bitch dont kill my vibe. "

    • digga

      so many falses in this statement. first of, numbers do lie. numbers is controlled by men so it can be doctored. it has been in the record business where people pay for airtime. i agree jay-z is one of the best ever (personally i think nas lyrically superior because he raps at the same skill he did when he came out. nas is still lyrical)second saying every jay z album was a classic is 100% opinion ( he had some duds. i can name them) third. jay-z lives off his name now. he can get a song played off his name (suit and tie is an example.. the song is mediocre at best and his verse as well). jay has lost his lyrical ability along the way. nas never did. he made some wack stuff but his lyrical ability never faded. that's fact right there. and there are many artists who never won grammys and made classics and sold millions (nas is a prime example of this) and the dude above me is right. 2pac sold millions off of all eyes n me alone but pac had that prestige even before his death. he was highly regarded (along with BIG)

    • keepit100

      Ok, numbers don't lie is your point jay z is the best? Lil Wayne sold a million records his first week, is he also the best? Selling records does not equal the depth of an artist alone. 2Pac sold a lot of records, but he was also more than that. You can't just look at the surface alone, but what they brought to the game, and Jay Z hasn't really brought much other than his ego, and his business skills.

    what happened to the High power movement? or a song like No Makeup...or mixtape songs like 'Let me be me' or 'cut you off' etc I could keep on...). But with all that said, I bumped the CD non-stop for a couple of months so I guess I can't complain. JAY-Z's verse was GARBAGE. BITCH you did kill Kendrick's vibe and mine too...WHY DO PEOPLE ENJOY HEARING HIM RAP ABOUT HIS MONEY and materialistic ideologies and actually enjoy it? Music is supposed to be a reflection of human emotions and life. And I like Jay-Z's old shit Reasonable Doubt/The Dynasty....But I can never love an artist who admits to sacrificing artistic integrity for a little more money. "I dumb down for my audience. And double my dollars They criticize me for it Yet they all yell "Holla" "If skills sold truth be told, I'd probably be. Lyrically Talib Kweli"---I highly doubt he'd come close to Mr. Kweli. But all of yall just listen to the beat and love the money cars clothes hoes...which I can appreciate if it's a small portion of the music. But not when it's the only thing being mentioned. That's ignorant ass music for ignorant people (such as me years ago..) I fear that Kendrick is going to continue overdoing the commercial shit and thus only give us small samples of what we know he's capable of... (re-post)

    • Anonymous

      going commercial???? You have no clue what you're talking about. Its people like you that fu*k it up for people let the man work and be continue being creative. And I think you need a Jay-Z refresher..go through his entire collection, yes he loves money and loves to rap about it but there is no denying his musical and lyrical prowess.

    • IMhO

      @BG - werd i said the same thing i lost a little respect when jayz said that bec that means hes not being true to himself. that said jayz still is hot and got lyrics and pumps out several quality verses.. its just when u hear a REAL emcee like k.dot you realize everything you heard for years was just the best out of horrible shit.

    First non of what you fuckers will say to Hov that will take a penny of his stack nor make him fall off the game because His the governor of rap and it will remain like that till he gives it to who ever deserves it... You west cost bitches think you own hip hop when y'all know west cost can't rap... nas said eminem bodied Jay but eminem his self wish his Jay you can check his records... All rappers wish they are Jay and you know that west cost rapper the game will kill for the moment with Jay I bet you game's last wish is to rap with Jay even daz said his happy to rap along with Jay... What the fuck is y'all crying here for tying to put dirt in a grown man's name any time he wish to enjoy what gave him his stack that other rappers can't.. Dem y'all hate when an grown man rips $ cos your favorite rapper let you down like dmx, ja, redman, xibit, and all.. No disrespect to Snoop D, Ice cube, bee real and that's where it stopped. You guys are here talking shit when Obama had to ask Jay to help for his campaign if he can reach out to Jay who the hell is y'all low fate no money no future niggas on here talking Kdot dodied Jay... Dem you lame never understood Jay and y'all will never because his not on any of your level. Where's the Love!

  • Shizzle

    Kendrick seems to be the only youngin to know how hard,powerful and ill Hov's verse is. Hov stated in "Decoded" that he likes to bury multiple and deep layers in his simplest lines or verses. He also says he keeps his rhymes open-ended for multiple interpretations. Kendrick and other skilled lyricists seems to be the only ones truely fluent in Jay-Z 101. Hov's whole verse was a double entendre. Jay has master the art with saying a lot with saying a little.

    • Lboy

      I know what you mean but naa bruhh Jay really didnt say anything that deep in this verse. If you think his ENTIRE verse on this song was an double entendre your trippin.

    • AB

      Another knowledgeable hip hop listener. I wish n!99as knew how to listen for more than just punchlines. Jay is very layered and you really have to pay attention, but I guess most just rather hate.

  • M

    Song is dope, Kendrick's last verse goes so hard too. But Jay got busy too... "Empty my memory bank, it's a million dollars in it baby,Hillary Swank. That's obviously a reference to million dollar baby the movie, but did you know that Hillary Swank has a photographic memory? This who got bodied talk is kind of stupid, especially since it's Kendrick's song and he has twice as many bars on the song. The first verse is cool, 2nd verse is hot, third verse is beast. That's not murdering "someone" that's a beat getting bodied( AKA a good song. ) 4/5, I think 3 stacks on the first verse would have been epic 5/5.

    BREAKING NEWS : It took KENDRICK LAMAR AN ENTIRE DAY TO WRITE HIS VERSE AFTER HE HEARD JAYS http://hiphop2013.com/tag/kendrick-lamar-took-day-to-write-verse/ ...

  • WTF isThis?

    WTF? This is POP RAP. Gay-z is talking about his BANK ACCOUNT AND $$. WTF is so artistic about that?? Kendrick lamar raps about bullshit, he literally rapped about nothing. Don't kill my vibe?? Dn't be so WEAK mentally and spiritually and nobody can kill your vibe. This shit S.U.C.K.S. Straight Up POP MTV Rap music.

    • BG

      As an avid listener and proponent of conscious hip-hop, I understand where WTF IsThis? is coming from-- but I feel like he didn't articulate his points very well. First off, Kendrick Lamar wasn't "weak" on the original version. I tend to agree with "wow"'s comment about the album being one piece of art in its totality. And while I was slightly disappointed with the cd's lack of conscious hip-hop that can transcend a listener (OK...what happened to the High power movement? or a song like No Makeup...or mixtape songs like 'Let me be me' or 'cut you off' etc I could keep on...). But with all that said, I bumped the CD non-stop for a couple of months so I guess I can't complain. JAY-Z's verse was GARBAGE. BITCH you did kill Kendrick's vibe and mine too...WHY DO PEOPLE ENJOY HEARING HIM RAP ABOUT HIS MONEY and materialistic ideologies and actually enjoy it? Music is supposed to be a reflection of human emotions and life. And I like Jay-Z's old shit Reasonable Doubt/The Dynasty....But I can never love an artist who admits to sacrificing artistic integrity for a little more money. "I dumb down for my audience. And double my dollars They criticize me for it Yet they all yell "Holla" "If skills sold truth be told, I'd probably be. Lyrically Talib Kweli"---I highly doubt he'd come close to Mr. Kweli. But all of yall just listen to the beat and love the money cars clothes hoes...which I can appreciate if it's a small portion of the music. But not when it's the only thing being mentioned. That's ignorant ass music for ignorant people (such as me years ago..) I fear that Kendrick is going to continue overdoing the commercial shit and thus only give us small samples of what we know he's capable of...

    Time to end this G.O.A.T. foolishness. In this constant debate about Jay-Z being the best ever I read things like "Nas will destroy Jay-Z" or "Eminem got a better flow than Jay" Those are OPINIONS. When will you fools learn that you can't win a debate with OPINIONS. Every rapper has a different style based on where they are from, the time period in which they were most successful, and their unique personality. We all can go on for days about our personal preferences but in a debate criteria like this is completely IRRELEVANT and automatically BIASED. The only way to win a debate is with cold hard FACTS. And the fact of the matter is that, when you weigh all of the tangible criteria (Sales, Critical Acclaim, Consistency, Longevity, and Impact) Jay-Z makes the strongest case for the G.O.A.T. Eminem has sold nearly twice as much as Jay-Z, and he is Jay's equal when it comes to longevity and impact. But Em lacks the consistency or critical acclaim that Jay-Z has (Im not talkin cult/fanboy classics, Im talkin CERTIFIED classics. XXL/Rolling Stone/Source approved) Eminem is VERY close though. Nas has enjoyed more critical acclaim and more overall respect in the hip-hop community through the years. And he's definitely equal to Jay with longevity and impact. But he hasn't been no where near as much of a consistent presence in hip-hop as Jay has. And he is obviously lacking in the sales department. Lil Wayne just may be the most consistent rapper of all time. He's no slouch when it comes to longevity and impact either. His glaring flaw? In his 12 year career Lil Wayne has yet to drop a truly critically acclaimed classic album (and it can be done in this climate. just look at kanye's discography). Also, contrary to popular beleif, Wayne lacks in the sales department. Sure, Tha Carter III and IV are blockbuster albums, but his OVERALL sales of 10 mil US pale in comparison to Jay-Z's 31 mil. 2pac is a touchy subject. When it comes to impact, pac takes the cake. No other rapper touched the world like 2pac did. He, like Em, has also sold more than Jay and he was very consistent in his time. Sadly, 2pac passed before his time which allowed Jay-Z to surpass him in longevity and critical acclaim. LL Cool J was the prototype for what a G.O.A.T. could be. He has enjoyed the most longevity, and he was fairly consistent, but his sales, acclaim and overall impact are no where near the likes of 2pac, Eminem, and ofcourse Jay-Z. Biggie, Rakim, Common, Snoop, the list goes on. All of these MC's are great but none of them have the total G.O.A.T. package like Jay-Z does. Jay-Z is the 3rd highest selling rapper of all time, and the richest. He's one of the most acclaimed (perhaps only rivaled by his boy Kanye). He dropped multi-platinum albums YEARLY from 96'-03', and he is still going strong today. He's been in the game since 88'. He's impacted hip-hop in countless ways from starting one of the 1st successful MC-owned record labels, to being the 1st non-athlete with a signature shoe, to surpassing the likes of Elvis with #1 albums. Jay-Z is without question the Greatest MC Of All Time. Period. You don't have to listen to him everyday. You don't even have to like him. But for goodness sake, RESPECT THE FACTS.

    • Prestige

      Good post, but I have one issue with it. According to your Official Criteria used to define the GOAT, I suppose most emerging artists wont qualify to even be mentioned in the discuss due to the current economic climate and the residual fall off in record sales. That is, unless we only try to determine the "post-2008 GOAT". Any attempt to determine the outright GOAT will be inherently biased in the favor of the artists of times past. That is to say, kendrick lamar will never stand a chance to be be considered to GOAT, barring a dramatic improvement in our economy which should happen any day now...

    I'm as much a fan of Kendrick Lamar as anyone else, but Jay got him on that remix yo. Kendrick had him on the delivery, but when you break down exactly what Jay is saying...nigga. Fuck outta here with that noise. Kendrick did a DOPE job no doubt, but Jay got em. Period, and I hate to even admit that because Kendrick is a better lyricist. But Jay was speaking from life experiences from a perspective that NO OTHER RAPPER can talk about. "Don't waste my breath / I don't know how many moons a nigga got left / Back to this joint / Smokin' this shit like I'm tryna' prove a point" - Jay Z "Kill My Vibe Remix" Come on man! He's on that retirement mentality on some grown man shit. Like damn I'm sitting here knowing damn well I could go in and fuck this whole track up. But I'm pass this rap shit, and Ima let you shine Kendrick. I aint got nothing to prove, it's your generation's turn.

He is a much better RAPPER bar per bar then Schoolboy Q but I would buy a schoolboy Q album before an Crooked I album. more entertainment.

    You know how I know you a nerd that loves hiphop? You said Kendrick killed Jay on this track. Jay has already done it, since the 90's. ---This track symbolizes Jay passing the torch to the next king, that's why they chose the Kobe & Michael artwork playing their first game against each other.

    • ChillDaily

      If anything Jay Z SHOULD consider J.cole to be the next king of hip-hop. But then again GKMC was so much better then sideline story in every way (Jay knows this), but still damn. I kinda agree with what your saying but that's a pretty deep conclusion to make based off 1 remix. I think Jay Z still considers himself king, he probably wasn't expecting Kendrick to go in like that on the 3rd verse. Niggas like Jay Z are never consciously willing to let go of that #1 spot.

    Damn this shit is ridiculous! Since Kendrick said he's not gonna follow up GKMC for a while I think it would be dope if he re-released it with a shitload of remixes. Shit would be crazy. He has respect from everybody in the game so it shouldn't be that hard to pull off. He already has the hardest feature to get. If ur reading this shit Kendrick, consider the idea. It would prolly sell at least another 200k and the radio spins would be insane. Bonus Remix Disc Example: 1)"Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe Remix" f. Jay-Z (already done) 2)"Backseat Freestyle Remix" f. Big Sean, Meek Mill, and J. Cole 3)"good kid Remix" f. Nas 4)"m.A.A.d city Remix" f. T.I. and The Game 5)"Swimming Pools (Black Hippy Remix)" f. Black Hippy (already done) 6)"Real Remix" f.

    Everyone is saying that Jay-Z got bodied...u gotta understand that there's a big difference between Jay's goals and Kendrick's...Jay has nothing to prove, so he's just kinda doing the track casually, and sends it over to Kendrick...Kendrick even said in interviews that he concentrated really hard because he had to do his best performance on it so of course it'll come out this way...Kendrick Lamar is 25 years old, first year in the game, and he's hungry for respect...Jay is just chillin...he's had his time bodying verses...I'm a huge fan of both tho

      flow wise, and rhyming wise yeah probably. But metaphor/simile wise Kendrick has him beat. I lost count of all the cheesy punchlines I heard on relapse and recovery. Dont get me wrong Eminem stands a strong chance, cus I know he wouldn't get on a track with Kendrick without his A-game, but me personally I would put my money on kendrick before Em if it came down too it. Em would HAVE to be the Welcome 2 hell Em to stand a chance, not the My life Em, I swear that was the worst Em verse I have ever heard....he actually said "you fucking meatballs"

    • styles g

      Exactly. Not every song has to be a battle. People going on about Kendrick bodied Jay. It's not like they're both in their prime on this. Jay is almost 20 years older than Kendrick. He has nothing to prove.

      @Anonymous, I agree MC's will always be competitive, but every song is not a battle rap. Sometimes it's just a song. When these legends get on the track with a young dude, do you think they're thinking I need to prove myself to this new ni99a in the game that just getting started? The Nas & Jay battle did bring this thinking back to light(not that people didn't talk about it before) but I think social media has likely amplified this talk as well. I just wish people had the hip hop IQ to be able to listen to a song and tell when MC's are battling and when it's just a song. I will say though when you jump on a track with a young lion he's always battling though!

    • Anonymous

      Or... It started because of the competitive nature of Hip Hop, are you telling me that a genre that has "rap battling" in it didnt care about whose verse was the best?

    • YESSIR

      yeah, this is what the game is missing: competitive lyricism. both brought their a+ game. it takes a real lyricist to bring it outta jay these days. with no effort, jay destroys all these rappers out there. but yes, andre 3000, would have been like the only other lyricist to finish this one.

  • VAallDAY

    You ignorant mo fos are the reason we don't get more epic collabs. Jay did his verse, sent it to Kendrick who then laid his verses after. I would expect him to shine. It's HIS song! It's not a battle. it's not like the both spit the same number of bars. Jay laid a solid verse. Kendrick killed his verses. Great song.

      Same old tired complaint about one rapper who ain't gettin his shine being better than the current rapper. GTFOH man

  • TrueHovFanTree

    Here Jay Z says Back to this joint, smoking this shit like Im tryna' prove a point. Im the highest, the highest title, numero uno Some clever word play by the Jigga man creating a double entendre. 1. Literally speaking, this joint can be understood as a cannabis stick so the phrase would mean hes smoking it deeply or intensely which is why on the next line he says hes the highest. 2. Metaphorically speaking, this joint refers (no pun intended) to the song itself and smoking it implies he is reducing it to ashes. What this means he is giving the best performance on the song giving him the highest title, numero uno or number one. Jay Z says this because he has been regarded as one of the best, if not The Best Rapper/Lyricist(s) in Hip Hop and now Kendrick Lamar is rising fast threatening his reign. Knowing people will naturally compare who is the better emcee on the song and in rap generally, he is trying to remind them, including Kendrick, that he is The God MC and this can be understood better by looking at the explanation of his next lines. Kill my vibe, that's your motherfuckin' funeral Hov finishes this verse with a classic double entendre. His vibe, so to speak is that of a cold hearted killer. Jay didnt become the $500 million mogul he is today by handing out treats at the mall. Like most up and comers during the 90s, he bullied his way through the rap game with unapologetic rhymes and best selling albums. The second meaning, implies Jay is boasting about how he just killed this verse. Putting young Kendrick in his place As if to say to him: Hey kid, your tracks good and your album was great but I just murdered you on this shit!

    lol hiphop is a funny genre some people can do no wrong and some people cant do anything right in people eyes no matter how hard they try.. Kendrick verses were CRAZY but jay z was POOR on this yet his verse gets passed off as good?? Rick Ross Verse on this track was 10 times better then jays yet didnt receive the likes this got. (youtube rozay verse before you comment with negativity) i guess hiphop now is more about favouritism than actually judging people verses . DOPE SONG KENDRICK

    This song is hot! For the record, Jay doesn't need to outshine Kendrick. Jay has nothing to prove. Its the other way around but you young fans don't get it. It's cool though, when Kendrick or someone else you like at the moment has a long career long enough like Jay then you can compare them. Until then, its apples and oranges...

    So much hardcore dickriding for Kendrick Lamar on this site and elsewhere. The song as a whole is nice, but let's please stop with the "King Kendrick" and "GOAT" certifications because Mr. Duckworth still has a long way to go (career-wise). Let it be known that there are plenty of incredibly talented MCs that may never receive as much as Kendrick. Also, we'll see if GKMC is really classic in the next 5 or 10 years.

    • Anonymous

      What's the point of mentioning that there are plenty of other artists who may be better? The point is that Kendrick has been recognized and he has a lot of talent. It's very difficult to get recognized in the music industry so why compare an artist who is famous to an artist who is not famous? It makes no sense. There will always be an artist who is better than another, so please stop!

      this is just my opinion but this sounds like a freestyle... His flow is on par and actually similar to the freestyle he did with Big L. The subject matter is definitely similar to freestyle/battle rap lyrics and he doesn't even use elaborate metaphors. This guy wrote a book called "Decoded" and no metaphors? Jay says he doesn't freestyle anymore but I think he's getting back in it. He's gotta watch the throne man otherwise these kids will get him

    What I've always liked about Hov is that he never breaks his cool. He can be on a track with a complete lyrical assassin like Kendrick, Em, or Nas and he never seems to flinch. While they try their best to out do him, he just keeps stylin on em. Thats confidence. Gotta respect it.

  • Malone

    All that who got murdered talk is crazy. Leader of New with the All Time #1, classic... 5stars!! Please stop hating. By the way the the comment about Em in the hood is the truth. Em's cool but kind of irreverent when we talk great MC's. Em's like Nikki, some lyrics cool, very controversial, different (white). But like someone said before, you don't hear people in urban communities playing Em and that's a huge issue wether you want to admit or not.

    • Tkeeler

      Eminem is one of the best lyricists of our time. His rhyme scheme, flow, wordplay, etc are undeniable. Getting played on radio shouldn't matter because he's one of the best lyrical rappers we've ever had, even though he occasionally has some wack topics.
