Most people can appreciate a good Hip-Hop rivalry. With some rappers turning to mainstream styles of music, it’s easy to feel like the Hip-Hop culture isn’t what it used to be. Then there are rappers who remind everyone that Hip-Hop is still alive and their passion for wanting to be the greatest, turns into true rap beef. Recently, rapper Kendrick Lamar has been catching some heat for stirring the pot with his “Control” verse that called out some pretty famed artists such as Drake, J. Cole, Wale and Meek Mill, to name a few. In response, Meek Mill stayed true to his Philly bad boy persona and fired back in his new single, Ooh Kill em:
Man you claiming you the king of New York
What the f–k wrong with you n–ga, step back
Hundred shots, aim straight at your snap cap
Everybody want the crown so I snatch that
Heard your gun go doo-dooo-dooo
Well my gun go blap-blap-blap-blap
What the f–k I gotta whisper to n-ggas
To earn my respect just to get to these n–gas
Go Ether, Takeover or Jigga on n-ggas I really go 2Pac and Biggie on n–gas
What the f-ck wrong with him
Like really I’m sick of you n–gas
You’ve been in the game like a year and some change
And you feeling yourself so I’m killing these n–gas like…
What was Kendrick’s response? Well, let’s just say he used a recent performance in Brooklyn, NY as his opportunity to set Meek straight:
I been doing this shit for years. I mastered this sh!t.
I have no time for irrelevant n—as [or] new n—as.
There’s one n—a in particular that needs to realize that there’s ‘levels’ to this sh!t.
I’m MOTHER F–KIN’ KING KENDRICK.
The drama spilled over to Twitter and let’s just say…things are heating up. I hope the beef stays as beef and not violent. We all know the reality of how wrong things could go.
