Kendrick Lamar Declares Himself King Of New York by baslone: 9:19pm On Aug 13, 2013
Hip-hop music was built off of competition and Kendrick Lamar gave fans and artists alike a reminder of what it is like to take rap's battlefield.

On Monday night, Big Sean dropped "Control," a leftover track originally recorded for his upcoming Hall of Fame, and it featured Jay Electronica and a fiery verse from K-Dot. After proclaiming himself the king of New York (and the west coast) Kendrick name-dropped a gang of his rap friends, but he wasn't so nice about it.

"I'm usually homeboys with the same n----s i'm rhymin with/ But this is hip-hop and them n----s should know what time it is/ And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Wale/ Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake/ Big Sean, Jay Electron', Tyler, Mac Miller/ I got love for you all but I'm tryna murder you n----s/ Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you n----s/ They don't wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you n---as," the Black Hippy MC rapped with an extra grit to his already

"I hear u loud and clear my n---a... @kendricklamar," Pusha T tweeted right after the song was released.

Rap artists from all over have since been flooding Twitter weighing in with their own reactions since the track debuted on New York DJ Funk Master Flex's Hot 97 radio show. "I never really tweet about music. But good lord.. @kendricklamar just like.. Bodied everyones entire year's worth of raps lol," Just Blaze wrote in awe.


Veteran hip-hop producer Pete Rock crowned the performance "illest verse of the year," while Missy Elliott took to the social networking site to thank the good kid for forcing rap artists "2 be Lyrical and have substance again."

Bun B also applauded the young MC. "Every rapper is supposed to feel like Kendrick feels as far as wanting to murder n---as on the mic. That's why I wrote my 'Murder' verse," he wrote referencing his 1996 track with fallen UGK partner love-vendor C.

Not everyone was a fan however, in particular Lupe Fiasco. "Y'all know y'all easily impressed. Bar so low you need a shovel to get at it," he wrote from his private account before he humorously ghost wrote rap responses for MCs like Drake, Jay Z and Rick Ross. Joe Budden questioned the pride of Big Apple MCs. "A Cali n---a just said he's the King of NY & u n---as so f---ing worried about your relationships, y'all make me sick," he messaged. "Where's old NY !!"

Psssh.. team up against who? lol, it seems like you just started listening to kendrick.. Kendrick already beat nas for best lyricists .. c'mon let be real, nas is dope no lie, but we need to stop living in the past.. He's Passed it.. only good verse nas dropped lately was that let nas down remix.. he's album was eh, same with jay z , most of these new york rappers ain't been doing shit.. kendrick just gave em a wake up call..

HIP HOP needs this kinda friendly competition right now.. and even if they team up against him, trust me , ain't no one wanna involve TDE.. TDE will murk the whole rap game

Meanwhile in other news. . . . .

Joe Budden And Styles P Beef Over ish Kendrick

The heat from Kendrick Lamar's verse on "Control" has spilled over into Twitter beef between Styles P and Joe Budden. The NY rappers started taking shots at each other on Twitter after K. Dot referred to himself as the "King of NY."

Styles first said that the people called out by Kendrick should have responded by today at noon. This prompted Joe Budden to tell Styles that he should have been one to respond. "@therealstylesp he called out everybody. U included." The update by Joe was later removed.

Styles P then went in on Joe Budden, calling him an Internet celebrity. "1st and foremost I have never acknowledged any kings but biggie ny or not ny 2nd of all don't play with me I f--- sh-- up!" adding," lyrically and physically so chill and save your Internet bullsh-- 4 the next ninja."

Styles then claimed that he and Joe aren't even friends, so he'd prefer if Joe not @Reply him on Twitter at all. "Just don't @ me talking like we folk if we ain't!" he wrote.

The two ended up leaving it pretty much at that although P added that he was open to scrapping with anyone off-Twitter. "I'm open to any scrapping behind closed doors with no law involved though!"

There's no trouble involved here. Kdot just resurrected the beef in rap and it was about time someone did that. Enough of the kumbaya and collaborations, let these rappers have a go at each other and lets see the lyrical genius among them.
I heart you Kendrick

No, i didnt just start listening to Kendrick, he's good, really good. But starting up a rap war is really dangerous to his career now, he's so young......it makes me remember rappers i loved while growing up that killed their bright rap future with beefs they beefed everyone and everything. I just hope he knows what he's getting into because if everyone is out to bring him down i dont see how he'll survive.

Kendrick wants to be THAT nigga and I think he can but I didn't see control as a Diss. He was saying what a lot of these other cats think BUT out loud. I love competition and God knows that the rap game needs more of it and creativity and hopefully, these rappers won't take it as a WEST vs EAST thing.


Why should I recycle bars when my mind is a flight to Mars?
Any force I came across was like rhyming inside a star
With the Universe on my back, your human verses is wack
I grab my extraterrestrial testicles when I rap
And tell Earth suck it, tell the planet try it
I turn this b*tch into Independence Day without the lucky drunk pilot - Joell Ortiz went in tho
