Still Coachable.

In his sit down on the The Seth Davis Show, the legendary former NBA coach explains how he heard Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” and his subsequent tweet. On the song, K-Dot raps: “If Phil Jackson came back, still no coachin’ me/ I’m uncoachable, I’m unsociable”.

Afterwards, Mr. Jackson tweeted the following response: “@kendricklamar it’s okay to be cocky and sure, but we all need somebody to lean on. Let’s just call it mentoring”.

    I think sometimes Rappers have lines that are exaggerated to a point where America starts getting confused like. I thought rap was honest and 100% real so now the line is just a line, or he wasn’t serious? There’s this blurred concept of what’s honest and what is just a line in HipHop music.

      What the hell are you going on about?

      Yes hip hop is honest, but you’re naive to take certain lines too literal just because hip hop I’d “honest” doesn’t mean everything is honest. Em use to rape women and children? Drake really out here catching bodies? Wayne still in the streets banging? NO! Use this thing called “intuition” to determine what’s right and wrong.

        OR we could stop feeding into the fallacy that is most hiphop. rappers SWEAR that they are “real” and then they lie, exaggerate, bend the truth, whatever you want to call it in order to gain more notoriety/fame/exceptance/etc.

        Then they tell you stupid and illogical things like “when I lie to you to get this money that’s what makes me real. Cuz I’m honest about my bs.” lmfao. Guess what dumbasses….no matter HOW bad you want to believe otherwise, if your fake, your fake. No matter WHAT your rationalization or bs excuse for being that way is.

          None of what you said describes Kendrick Lamar though, though I see where you’re coming from.

      I think mainstream U.S does not know the difference between literal and symbolic. His line was symbolic for how untouchable he is on the mic, but White America feels he is aiming at this with disrespect, meaning they are not reading in between the lines. Hip-hop is like the bible certain scriptures take on literal meanings while others are symbolic.

      For example when God said let there be light, he did not mean it in the physical sense, but the mental sense light was represented as enlightenment while the dark was chaos and ignorance.

    I think this is a testament to how far Kendrick Lamar’s reach is expanding, which Drake doesn’t seem to get. Regardless of it it was just a “twitter moment” it was a moment. His lines reached ESPN and talk shows and people you wouldn’t think it would. Sure it was just a few week buzz thing, but the impact will be felt for awhile. That’s why you still see Drake answering questions about it lol he’s the answer to his own question.

      I mess with Drakes music, but I honestly like how there are different view points both good and bad coming to the fray. This view is of course spot on.
