Kendrick, who was dubbed “Hottest MC” by MTV in 2012, doesn’t hold back on the track in his quest to steal fans. His controversial verse gets pretty intense:
“I’m usually homeboys with the same n****s i’m rhymin wit/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.”
He also has a verse that says: “I’m Machiavelli’s offspring, I’m the king of New York/King of the Coast, one hand, I juggle them both.”
So far none of the rappers have taken issue with the song. In fact, Pusha T took to Twitter to write: “I hear u loud and clear my n***a… @kendricklamar.”
