    Happy to hear a new verse from Jay Electronica too.

    But when you gonna drop that album nigga you taking long.

  • Josh T

    Big Sean didn’t put this on the album because he got killed on his own song. Sampling issues was his excuse.

  • Davirus212

    Big Sean went in. Not a fan of Kendrick but I’ll be lying if I said he didn’t destroy that verse. I agree where’s the uncensored version at. Damn!!!

  • chiggy

    “Chazz Shabazz” approves this track

  • chan

    ^ Oh god *Big Sean voice*


    Dammit Big Sean !!!!!

  • TEFF


  • mk

    i cant wait to hear “hall of fame” its got alot of heat behind it….shiit eminem thought it was a great cd, i guess we shall see if the hype is real on this cd…

  • jeeeem

    So much for Sean never being killed on his own track…

  • DAC miesel

    Yo Kendrick just killed everybody in the rap game

  • Josh T

    So which one of the rappers Kendrick called out is going release diss track first??

  • StarFox64

    i can’t even front, since its big sean’s record i can give a fuck less about this.


    Kendrick …Kendrick


  • DAC miesel

    Yo wtf had to listen like 3 time. What The Fuck.

  • Mike B

    Wow!…second half of his verse got iiiinsane…this shudnt be a collab…he needs to remix this and take those 2 spots, that were almost useless cuz of his verse

    Someone tell Game that’s how you namedrop

  • The Great

    Damn Kendrick Spit So Damn Hard I Didn’t Even Bother Listening To Jay Electronica Verse HAHAHAHA

  • King of NYC get fuck out of hereeeeeeeeeeeeee

  • kendrick can’t fuck with Nas on a battle

  • AS





  • DetroitVsEverybody

    What K. Dot just did wasn’t even a diss. That is unchartered territory. There doesn’t even exist a word to describe it.

  • CAlejo

    There u go Sean this is heat. FINALLY! And Kendrick must’ve had a bad day that day.

  • Jacob


    just when i thought his guest verses were starting to get whacker, and that he was getting overrated he said fuck that and slaughtered this shit

    “I got love for you all, but im trying to murder you niggas, tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas, they not want to hear not one more noun or verb from you niggas”


  • RRCoolJ

    Kendrick didn’t have to do that. Unfair. This shouldn’t have been released. Smh

  • Da kid

    Kendrick thank you for resurrecting hip hop!!! He murder that shyt!!!

  • Davirus212

    With that being said I’m not gonna hop on the Kendrick bandwagon over 1 verse. Best verse I ever heard him spit but come on son. Stop passing this man the crown so easily. I don’t even like drake too much but we all know everybody is anticipating NWTS more than Kendrick’s debut. That’s no new king of hip hop. That’s the hype machine building him up

  • Sample

    I usually leave y’all to your d*ck riding antics but I can’t today. Big Sean murdered this also. As well as jay elec. Sean was just toying with the beat his flow was ill.
    Kendrick finally came out of this imaginary friend zone all these rappers are in and did some name dropping. We know its not a diss but its needed in this fake hiphop world today.
    Everybody did their thing and I think he should’ve got ye to move mountains to get this sample cleared. Ppl would’ve bought this album just from seeing these 3 on one song in a tracklist. That’s is all. But please stop with the d-riding.

  • Mo

    Kendrick just shitted on everyone. HAHA. Jay Elec had a great verse tho and Sean was pretty good to. But K. Dot just went mental…

  • stoney man

    this was dope. Please put that Jay ElecHanukkah out ASAP!!

  • Control (Big Sean Free Edition)(Feat. Kendrick Lamar And Jay Electronica)

  • J-DUB

    1st play- *stops after Kendrick verse*
    2nd play- *rewinds Kendrick verse*
    3rd play- * plays Kendrick verse again*

    … *speechless*



  • Davirus212

    @Sample agree 100%. Too much dick riding of Kendrick once again and Sean’s verse gets ignored like he didn’t kill it.

  • Inf

    The eyelashes is like umbrellas when It rain from the heart.
    The tissue is like a angel kissing you in the dark.

  • Tev Milli

    Jesus Christ….
    I did’nt kno Kendrick verse was like that….
    Thats all I got 2 say

  • Feelwhop

    Embrace history when its happening…What Kendrick just did lyrically will be remembered 25 years from now….He showing the entire rap world that no one is close to him lyrically. Drake will out sell him but no one can out rhyme this kid right now…

  • Left Brain – Ol’ Dirty Remix (Al Bundy & Edmund DaGeneral)

  • JHP

    This record is insane, you bitches need to stop your bitching and snide comments, and be grateful to Sean for putting this momentous record together. Big Sean went in, and Jay Elec as well. I will admit that Kendrick just fucking demolished this shit, like oh my god.

  • Black Shady

    If this Kdot verse doesnt make all these rappers go back to the drawing board……then I dont know what will


  • DetroitVsEverybody

    How is Kendrick’s verse not last? Mistake.

  • LOL

    this should of been a Kendrick solo track, fuck these two bozos on here.

  • ECU

    Should’ve redone the beat if sample didn’t clear. Sean did good of getting Jay electronica nd Kendrick.

    Kendrick on some crazy energy. Good to hear a jay elec verse

  • King

    Just because you name drop and say I killed em doesn’t mean you can kill them on the same track

  • thirdeyijimmy a fool wit this shit…Sean had no business on the record and Jay elec did some damage fa real, fa real…but hands down lil’ slaughtered about half of whats out right now…that shit made you dust off that rewind button and pick that pad back up like fuuuuccck!

  • oj Da Cornball


    That producer should’ve went and see Dre to do that track over. Dre would’ve body it on the redo.

  • oj Da Cornball

    Jay Elec is supper overrated. His carrer will fade quick,

  • Mathematician

    ^^Mos def Kendrick shoulda went last. He brought too much energy for Jay Elec to follow that. I’m not even a serious Kendrick Lamar fan, but there’s no way to deny that the bar was raised with that verse

  • Da Business

    @ Feelwhop

    Co FUCKING sign!!!

    K. Dot is Chopping heads off!!!

  • Balla

    A Jay Electronica sighting???

  • Set303

    It’s all fair to say they flexed on this record.

  • Dom

    The part where kendrick is talking about the other rappers is pretty good, the rest is just alright.. so everybody REEEELAXXX!!!!

  • StarFox64

    i actually realized its very convenient when u fast forward to 3:00..

  • Mr.November

    Bet, Wale gonna be the first to say some corny shit.

  • Set303

    ^^ Pusha was like I hear you loud and clear my nigga. Nice little set up for that Pusha & Kendrick record on his album.

  • Devante

    Jay Elec verse was pointless after hearing K Dot verse

  • Bigpimpin

    Big Sean wasted some amazing Lyrics on a shit beat

  • Haters everywhere

    I think Sean killed them all.

  • Donn


    Stop with that greatest verse of all time shit, now your in the moment, great verse but wipe your mouth lol.

  • E
  • JordanLeBronMagicLarryWilt

    I’m a fan of Kendrick Lamar but he’s 0-2 on the mic when matched up with legends in my opinion. Jay-Z’s bars were better on ‘Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe (Remix)’ and 50 Cent’s bars were better on ‘We Up’. K Dot should of saved this for an Eminem track instead of wasting it on Big Sean and the B-Version of Nas.

  • joy road killa

    all you trappin ass auto tune ass niggaz your day is finally over lyrics are back…kdot..cole..drake..all the new niggaz except (wack montana) are back on the shit hip hop was built mfs gotta start rappin or get laughed at so all you 1 hit wonder summer single ass niggaz get the fuck outta here…the real is back!

  • Wallychamp49

    Cot Damn!! Kendrick Lamar ft big Sean, and jay eletronica.

  • mike


  • EV


  • Genesis

    Glad to see a few niggas got sense in here…. All them guys did they thing…. Kendrick was definitely the dopest on this song, but all the verse of the year and raising the bar talk???? Let’s agree to disagree….

  • White Shady

    He’s not starting anything and there is NO beef. Just pushing Hip Hop! Plain and simple. Quit making it something its not.. sheesh

  • White Shady

    @EV sad you can’t see the greatest hip hop artist of our lifetime.

  • White Shady

    @Genesis Let’s agree that you don’t know hip hop? cool.

  • Despite

    DAMN. Kendrick callin out all Hip Hop to step it up.

  • Kimm

    DAMNNNN!! K.Dot

  • Theloneus

    Niggas still talking about auto-tune even though nobody uses it anymore smh.

  • STFU

    It’s a good verse.. But don’t act like he is fucking with Slaughterhouse, lyrically. He’s not a technical rapper like Crooked i. Don’t overrate it because he name dropped. Game name drops in all his verses lol. You kids…

  • That Guy

    so i suppose we won’t be hearing that Cole-Lamar tape anytime soon….

  • Jonte

    Kendricks wack

  • Banger

    you can hear the slim shady influence in Kendrick’s bars…especially when he goes in about sky diving at the end

    Verse of the year no question

    Thanks, Kenny!

  • POMONOK PROJECTZ aka [email protected] PROJECTZ

    I know when Big Sean heard KENDRICK’S verse he went back to rewrite his.. That the best Big Sean verse I ever heard…. Damn Jay Elect u just should of sat this one out!!!!!!…. KENDRICK went suicidal on that track…….

  • JayCudi)

    Kendrick is ON IT! NO COMPETITION!

  • ThisShitRightHereNigga


  • Kendrick Lamar is a black singer singer prnomenal in early 2013 knew this with several veteran singers like Big Sean that sell well in the world music market

  • Kane

  • Leon Sandcastle

    Whose idea was it to put jay elect after kdot”s verse? Ain’t nobody trying to hear that after Kendrick’s verse. I tried but…

    Kendrick just smacked the whole rap game. He called out everybody he saw as competition, then disrespected the rest by not even mentioning them. HA!

  • JazO

    Overrated ass guy

  • Drizzle

    Slaughterhouse could probably out rap them on this beat

  • Tra tha nigga

    Game mixed with a lil Eminem

  • vel

    First and foremost omg k dot just put everyone on notice. For god sake
    please dont put this man on your song unless your GOING TO BRING YOUR A
    GAME and that still might not be enough to keep you from getting redrum on
    your own shit. Lastly Small Sean your better then that Bro your going to keep a song off
    your album because that man raped your just go harder.


    kendrick is on pluto right now. CANT WAIT FOR THE REACTION, TYLER is gonna diss believe that, also no mention of lil wayne, respect? or?


    he ddnt mention Kanye West also. Fair to say Wayne and Ye are on another level.

  • JFK top

    Big sean ft Game ???? @trethenigga

  • get it right

    waiting for that mac miller response

  • JFK top

    Nigga give me a game vibe with his heavy delivery and dissin not giving a shit attitude sick ass flow

  • Tra tha nigga

    Told yall

  • Erick Mendez

    Yea he kinda did sound like Game

  • AD

    @Detroitvseverybody cuz the song would have ended on kedrick lamar using a condom as a parachute.

    jay elect ended his verse like this:

    Draw a line around some Earth, then put my name on the plot
    Cause I endured a lot of pain for everything that I got
    The eyelashes like umbrellas when it rains from the heart
    And the tissue is like an angel kissin you in the dark
    You go from blind sight to hindsight, passion of the Christ
    Right, to baskin’ in the limelight, it take time to get your mind right
    Jay Electricity, PBS mysteries
    In a lofty place, tangling with Satan over history
    You can’t say shit to me – Alhamdulillah
    It’s strictly by faith that we made it this far

    yeah… they got it rite

  • Evil

    Thank you Kendrick for killing these new generation of wacks.

    Drake,ASAP,Big Sean,Mac Miller,Pusha T,J.Cole,Meek Mill,Wale,BIG Krit and Tyler all have to step their game up.Kendrick is miles ahead of you guys.

    And Kendrick just said he was King of NYC…Are you NYC rappers just gonna sit there and take that? LOL You fucks better respond or else Kendrick WON

  • SJB

    I’m waiting for Nas to tell Sean “Kendrick murdered you on your own shit!”

  • Kali

    Kendricks verse is really really impressive.

  • blk Charles

    He didn’t sound like Eminem …..Game yeah

  • blk Charles

    Kendrick turns into Game when he wants to prove a point and he sure did dissed em all lol good flow

  • Kendrick bodied this track.

  • TruthBeTold

    I would’ve loved to have heard Crooked I on this . I think he would’ve handled Kendrick .

    never the less , shit was dope

  • TruthBeTold


    Once I hear Kendrick on a track with either one of them and kills em then he’s eligible for the crown

  • crysis

    Kendrick WHHHHHHHOOOOAAAA boy went in. “I heard the barbershops be in great debates all the time Bout who’s the best MC? Kendrick, Jigga and Nas…Eminem, Andre 3000, the rest of y’all
    New niggas just new niggas, don’t get involved”.

    lyrics below

    [Intro: Big Sean]
    I look up
    Yeah and I take my time
    I’mma take my time, woah
    Power moves only

    [Verse 1: Big Sean]
    Boy I’m ’bout my business on business
    I drink liquor on liquor
    I had women on women
    Yeah that’s bunk bed bitches
    I’ve done lived more than an eighty year old man still kickin’
    Cause they live for some moments, and I live for a livin’
    But this for the girls that barely let me get to first base
    On some ground ball shit
    Cause now I run my city on some town hall shit
    They prayin’ on my motherfuckin’ downfall bitch like a drought but
    You gon’ get this rain like it’s May weather
    G.O.O.D. Music, Ye weather
    Champagne just tastes better
    They told me I never boy, never say never
    Swear flow special like an infant’s first steps
    I got paid to reverse debts
    Then I finally found a girl that reverse stress
    So now I’m talkin’ to the reaper to reverse death
    So I can kick it with my granddad, take him for a ride
    Show him I made somethin’ out myself and not just tried
    Show him the house I bought the fam, let him tour inside
    Don’t matter how far ahead I get, I always feel behind
    In my mind, but fuck tryin’ and not doin’
    Cause not doin’ is somethin’ a nigga not doin’
    I said fuck tryin’ and not doin’
    Cause not doin’ is somethin’ a nigga not doin’
    I grew up to Em, B.I.G., and Pac bitch, and got ruined
    So until I got the same crib B.I.G. had in that Juicy vid
    I can’t motherfuckin’ stop movin’
    Go against me, you won’t stop losin’
    From the city where every month is May-
    Day at home, spray your dome
    Niggas get sprayed up like AK was cologne for a paycheck or loan
    Yeah I know that shit ain’t fair
    They say that Detroit ain’t got a chance, we ain’t even got a mayor
    You write your name with a Sharpie, I write mine in stone
    I knew that the world was for the taking and it wouldn’t take long
    We on, tryna be better than everybody that’s better than everybody
    Rep Detroit, everybody, Detroit wrecks everybody
    I’m so first class I could spit up on every pilot
    The city’s my Metropolis, feel it It’s metabolic
    And I’m over niggas sayin’ they’re the hottest shit
    Then run to the hottest niggas just to stay hot
    I’m one of the hottest because I flame drop
    Drop fire, and not because I’m name droppin’
    Hall of Fame droppin’
    And I ain’t takin’ shit from nobody unless they’re OG’s
    Cause that ain’t the way of an OG
    So my GO collect more G’s, every dollar
    Never changed though, I’m just the new version of old me
    Forever hot headed but never got cold feet
    Got up in the game won’t look back at my old seats
    Clique so deep we take up the whole street
    I need a bitch so bad that she take up my whole week, Sean Don

    [Bridge: Kendrick Lamar]
    Miscellaneous minds are never explainin’ their minds
    Devilish grin for my alias aliens to respond
    Peddlin’ sin, thinkin’ maybe when you get old you realize
    I’m not gonna fold or demise
    (I don’t smoke crack, motherfucker I sell it!)
    Everything I rap is a quarter piece to your melon
    So if you have a relapse, just relax and pop in my disc
    Don’t pop me no fucking pill, I’mma a pop you and give you this

    [Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar]
    Tell Flex to drop a bomb on this shit
    So many bombs, ring the alarm like Vietnam in this shit
    So many bombs, make Farrakhan think Saddam in this bitch
    One at a time, I line ’em up and bomb on they mom while she watchin’ the kids
    I’m in a destruction mode if the gold exists
    I’m important like the pope, I’m a muslim on pork
    I’m Makaveli’s offspring, I’m the king of New York
    King of the Coast, one hand, I juggle them both
    The juggernaut’s all in your jugular, you take me for jokes
    Live in the basement, church pews and funeral faces
    Cartier bracelets for my women friends I’m in Vegas
    Who the fuck y’all thought it’s supposed to be?
    If Phil Jackson came back, still no coachin’ me
    I’m uncoachable, I’m unsociable
    Fuck y’all clubs, fuck y’all pictures, your Instagram can gobble these nuts
    Gobble dick up ’til you hiccup, my big homie Kurupt
    This the same flow that put the rap game on a crutch
    I’ve seen niggas transform like villain Decepticons
    Mollies’ll prolly turn these niggas to fuckin’ Lindsay Lohan
    A bunch of rich ass white girls lookin’ for parties
    Playin with Barbies, wreck the Porsche before you give ’em the car key
    Judge me ’til the monarchy, blessings to Paul McCartney
    You called me a black Beatle, I’m either that or a Marley
    (I don’t smoke crack motherfucker I sell it)
    I’m dressed in all black, this is not for the fan of Elvis
    I’m aimin’ straight for your pelvis, you can’t stomach me
    You plan on stumpin’ me? Bitch I’ve been jumped before you put a gun on me
    Bitch I put one on yours, I’m Sean Connery
    James Bonding with none of you niggas, climbing 100 mil in front of me
    And I’m gonna get it even if you’re in the way
    And if you’re in it, better run for Pete’s sake
    I heard the barbershops be in great debates all the time
    Bout who’s the best MC? Kendrick, Jigga and Nas
    Eminem, Andre 3000, the rest of y’all
    New niggas just new niggas, don’t get involved
    And I ain’t rockin no more designer shit
    White T’s and Nike Cortez, this is red Corvettes anonymous
    I’m usually homeboys with the same niggas I’m rhymin’ wit
    But this is hip hop and them niggas should know what time it is
    And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale
    Pusha T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake
    Big Sean, Jay Electron’, Tyler, Mac Miller
    I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you niggas
    Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas
    They dont wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you niggas
    What is competition? I’m tryna raise the bar high
    Who tryna jump and get it? You better off tryna skydive
    Out the exit window of 5 G5’s with 5 grand
    With your granddad as the pilot he drunk as fuck tryna land
    With the hand full of arthritis and popping prosthetic leg
    Bumpin Pac in the cockpit so the shit that pops in his head
    Is an option of violence, someone heard the stewardess said
    That your parachute is a latex condom hooked to a dread

    [Verse 3: Jay Electronica]
    You could check my name on the books
    I Earth, Wind, and Fire’d the verse, then rained the hook
    The legend of Dorothy Flowers proclaimed from the roof
    The tale of magnificent king who came from the nooks
    Of the wild magnolia, mother of many soldiers
    We live by every single word she ever told us
    Watch over your shoulders
    And keep a tin of beans for when the weather turns the coldest
    The Lord is our shepherd, so our cup runneth over
    Put your trust in the Lord, pretend that your Chevy Nova
    I’m spittin’ this shit for closure
    And God is my witness, so you could get it from Hova
    For all you magicians that’s fidgeting with the cobra
    I’m silent as a rock, ‘cause I came from a rock
    That’s why I came with a rock, then signed my name on the Roc
    Draw a line around some Earth, then put my name on the plot
    Cause I endured a lot of pain for everything that I got
    The eyelashes like umbrellas when it rains from the heart
    And the tissue is like an angel kissin you in the dark
    You go from blind sight to hindsight, passion of the Christ
    Right, to baskin’ in the limelight, it take time to get your mind right
    Jay Electricity, PBS mysteries
    In a lofty place, tangling with Satan over history
    You can’t say shit to me – Alhamdulillah
    It’s strictly by faith that we made it this far

  • crysis


  • pRoc

    Big Sean career is over yall saying Kendrick took games style probably but it worked being real dissing and not being scared finally niggas acting like a Compton boy good shit kdot call these cats out name drop these pop artist

  • pRoc

    Im use to kendrick doing that lil voice so Im with yall I thought it was Game at first when he started rapping hardcore I like this Kendrick more

  • stop

    i was impressed with kendricks verse until he started name dropping, i appreciate competition but that seemed a little bit desperate and corny.

  • Reply

    This doesn’t sound like Kendrick he changed his voice

  • Davirus212

    @Dom cosign. Him name dropping rappers is the only reason that verse is relevant. Stop acting like y’all care about the whole verse. Calling it the greatest verse of all time??? Really??? Get that cum off ya breath before you speak

  • Jenn

    He sounds like rapper the game wtf nice

  • chikuyu

    not fair what Kendrick did to that track

  • Jmack300

    Twitter brought me hear …..

    Yeah he sounds like Game for sure snapping and dissing every one lol

  • i got hoes

    Big sean your rap career is over

  • slimshady

    only eminem can reapond……do the old man still got it?……i fell out my bed….laughing…..lil wayne started this we friend feature shit…..kendrick would of been a boring king…..but bow…any challengers?…..this nigga got all 6 dragonballs……who gonna play goku?….smh

  • Yo , kendrick is nice, but he’s even better at being A Animated Rapper.

  • Black Shady

    12 hours later….I had to come listen to this shit again

    K.Dot came out swinging like “fuck rap friends and yall corny ass designer clothes and shit”. Now watch them jump off the Versace shit that fast lmao

  • Hova

    This Game??


    East Coasters are in DENIAL. Yer spitters cant hold a candle to K Dot. The floor is being mopped with yer roster. SMH.


  • Megabkny

    damn kendrick and about time jay

  • East Coast nigga BX

    Fuk Kendrick Lamar trying to be tough like 2pac or Game sit your lil good boy ass down you ain’t bout that life

  • East Coast nigga BX

    Nigga said he the king of NY lol you ain’t even the king of your coast game is

  • Your Life Is A Lie

    This is ETHER all over again, meaning the circumstances (Nas making a return diss when everybody thought he was dead after Takeover and K.Dot calling out the current rap game) outweighs the actual verses. But this is good for hip hop, the change has been coming for a minute but this song officially killed off the molly/stripper/fantasy drug dealer era just like DMX killed off the Shiny Suit Era

  • Kendrick went off. Big Sean still had a good verse though , but I expect something real and some bomb ass songs to come from the niggas that was disses

  • VGA

    K dot went in but jay elect dropping jewels

  • REmarcable88

    kendrick dissed Jay Electronica while being on the same song!!!! so dope…..reminds me of LL and canibus on 4,3,2,1

  • vomit

    Kendrick verse started and I forgot about that other guy

  • Dashing

    Gonna drop knowledge in the next comment….though no one’s probly reading the 151st comment.

  • Dashing


    1. Kendrick bodied this track, not just the name dropping. He bodied it lyrically throughout.
    2. Jay Electronica is a beast, but he should have gone first. No one should have followed Kendrick
    3. If this is not verse of the year, PLEASE tell me what is!! It singlehandedly got every rapper to want to rap their ass off and took over nearly every trending topic on Twitter.
    4. When it comes to rapping (not making hits) NO ONE is fuckin with Kendrick right now except the first few legends he mentioned. Nas, Jay, Em, Andre 3000. Outside of that no one is fucking with that Kendrick on that MC shit. Not Wayne, not Ye, not Drake, not Cole, not anyone.
    5. 2013 might be the best year in hip hop in a long time and it’s only August.

  • The black robin thicke

    *the west is back* respect or get your bitch took, find her on backpage haha!!!

  • Your Life Is A Lie

    Remember all the “nobody wants to hear that EASTCOAST lyrical backrap boom bap shyt” talk that dominated the hip hop scene? Yea alright then…

    did KenLamar just murdered these rap niggas??!!! damn my nigga…..!!!



  • Chris Kelly

    I don’t smoke weed mf i sell it


    damn! kendrick jus bodied and done what most these niggas are shook to do.. oh and that last verse reminded me of em’s style the way he extends his metaphors in the verse

  • Your Life Is A Lie

    Drake is under PRESSURE…..

  • DMVinyourchick

    I’m glad he aint put It on his album this shit too long

  • DonGaza

    Pardon me…I’m taking a shit!!! (KenLamar)

  • Ka123

    Lawd have mercy, Kendrick just left me speechless. Big Sean went in and Jay Electronica good to hear you, but damn Kendrick killed it!!!

  • If Drake is Kobe then K.Dot is definitely Lebron.

    The Beast has just been unleashed again.

  • TheScribble

    This was much needed…rappers need to step their pen game up.

  • KingJuggaNott

    New Nigga Burial. Murdered every new nigga that’s spitting.

  • Supreme

    I havent herd a verse like that since

    tupac against all odds

    the game needed this hopefully rappers take off all these leather sweat pants and start making music again

  • Jim Morris


  • Windycityg72

    Hasn’t been this much of a shake up since 50 back in 02’/03 i know y’all hate 50 but he really was the last one with infamous verses like this. Not the greatest verse of all time but possibly the most infamous K. Dot got the Crown today !

  • Mo

    Kendrick wasn’t dissing really it’s just friendly competition. He’s asking fellow rappers to step they game up. The more I listen to Jay Elec’s verse the more I think it was close with Kendrick as far as being the best verse. Kendrick had upper with the delivery and shock value of his verse.

  • BGOL Ricky!!!

    the bar has been lowered anytime you niggas are doing monkey flips over this shit

    shame on anyone over 35 …go back and listen to some real shit we grew up on
    and put it next to this shit…it can be from 80s-90s it will still shit on every verse
    in this song…now i know most of you niggas just settle for whatever you can get
    nowadays but growing up on wu-tang and a thousand sick ass MCs this shit is
    basic mediocre. Carry on praising this bullshit and call me a hater all the fuck u

  • Cemal

    Anyone notice the next two bars after big sean says ‘no name dropping/hall of fame dropping’.. felt like a direct shot at kendrick, considering what he said

  • King

    If J.Cole ever replied, Kendrick would get his ass handed to him!!

  • Asa

    let’s end this speculation I’m talking to all of ya’ll…XXL freshman alumni sitting around at first talking bout, ‘he wasn’t talking about me. Beeyatch, go play. Beeyatch, go play!

  • Asa

    Name so many names Kendrick was impressed…

  • King Pookie

    Can’t wait to see this years hottest Mac’s in the game list. Baaaaahaahahah! King Kendrick!

  • Chronic

    did YN really just try to compare drakes Versace verse to kendricks verse on twitter…fuckin really? How you gonna compare that poppy ass sounding rap to this raw ass fuck shit??? Granted drake makes really good music, by no means is he the leader of new school rappers, Kendrick, cole, ab-soul, all spit better than him lyrically

  • hitsquad

    i never seen so many reverse cowgirl dickriders in my life lmfao!

  • .

    @Your Life Is A Lie


  • Chronic

    @BGOL Ricky!!!

    its not just the level of the lyrics dude, its the fact that Kendrick is the first person to finally call out other rappers for dumbing down the genre and that he straight up called out at least a bunch of the other new/semi-established guys…even jay z was gonna just give in to this drake runs hip-hop shit….but the the truth is drake sings all the time and a lot of his sales are from females wanting his r&b shit.. hip-hop was kinda downward spiraling for a while and hopefully guys will realize they can make songs that aren’t just corny club music or shit over trap beats and people will actually buy it.

  • Chronic

    and yall need to get that Joell Ortiz response up quick

  • who’s hungry?

  • hotasice

    i love that he didn’t mention 2 chainz… just love it…

  • prai$e

    he didnt mention Problem lol

  • OuTLaW

    They all went in on this. Kendrick did his thing but his verse is way over hyped. people acting like they’ve never heard anything better lol i see people saying Game is better then Kendrick like Games some lyrical beast LMAO!!!!

  • StarFox64

    i feel bad for big sean, this is his record, lol and i wonder how much each person kendrick name dropped paid for a mention….this shit is getting more attention than normal

  • josh

    who cares, theses niggas sub-par in rap.

  • The beat is amazing, Jay shined but was absolutely in Kendrick’s shadow. Sean means nothing as usual.

    Fire like I never heard before from that kid Kendrick, I wonder who pissed him off.

    Guys like Drake and Wale will never be able to relate to a performance like that, they don’t have it in them.

    Ill track. Less “ya bish” and more Control from Kendrick.

  • mrholloway

    well…In Hip Hop…there is the city of Atlanta…and Kendrick Lamar…no one else. LOL

  • watevs

    Kendrick spent some time with em and this is what you get…. naming names and spitting lyrics

  • peter pan

    you can hear the Eminem influence in the last bit of kendricks verse

  • OJ

    Damn now how does Kanye feel “best verse” still i lose cred for kendrick calling himself king of NY

  • MR.MZO

    not a fan of big sean…k dot did what he always does, spit fiya! jay elec should have gone before kdot, cuz i know it was over when kendrick finished


    i know i’m late to this, but seriously, kendrick just murdered the whole fuckin industry

    seriously, peace out every other rapper, RIP ya’ll are dead

  • Itz Yourz

    “Wanting people to listen, you can’t just tap them on the shoulder anymore. You have to hit them with a sledgehammer, and then you’ll notice you’ve got their strict attention. ”

    He did exactly what he waqs suppose to do and we douing exactly what he wanted us to do. Get him buzzing again. Big Sean should actually be thanking that nigga right now…lol.

    Kendrick Lamar? Good shit, lets see if you can keep it up.

  • Musikal

    A little late to comment on this but this is dope to bad it’s not on hall fame. All hail KENDRICK LAMAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Time for rappers to step there game up.

  • HK

    K. Dot murdered Big Sean on his own joint, Lol!
    Jay Electronica was dope and actually better as the last verse imo

  • ROK

    im da 1 dat u said aint go be nothin boy,now im thumin thew a check like da postal boy!!!i want it all lyrics!!!check out my video on youtube at ROK-I WANT IT ALL(OFFICIAL VIDEO) I GOT DA LAMBO,MASERATI AND THE BOAT OUT 4 DIS 1

  • VonMiller

    Not a one NY nigga on the track..hmm.. NY has been the laughing stock for the past 10 years. He owned NY city. Jay Elec wasn’t to bad, his shit was extremely clean. Sean wasn’t bad .. Kendrick took Kurupt, em, and game flow.. So here we go with the borings “jada, and a host of other NY rappers putting niggaz to sleep again..”

  • glass

    jesus fuckin christ, did Kendrick rape a baby on this track or something? it’s been trending all day like it’s an important world event

  • Mister B

    Best verse by far 2013 by Kendrick.

    Drake and J. Cole are the ones who should reply

  • Er

    Kendrick made Jay Electronica sound like an amateur (and that ain’t easy to do). Big Sean sounded dope until Kendrick came through lol. I have a feeling that Kendrick’s verse will be the hottest verse on Big Sean’s album. Mean!

  • Kizman

    honestly, fuck kendrick!!! 211, problem and nipsey hussle would murk this fool on some real street shit. they are REAL WC rappers!

  • The high pitched voice looped in the background goes “el pueblo unido jamás será vencido” (the people united will never be defeated), it comes from a Chilean song by Quilapayún. That’s probably the sampling issue they had with this. Kind of blows my mind that such a chant ended up in a hip-hop song, of all places.

  • I mess with Kendrick, and I feel the attitude, that’s how you need to approach posse cuts.


    He needs to have several seats. Unless Hov, Nas & Kiss died sometime recently, he not ANYWHERE in the conversation on this side. Not even close, smh….

  • T.Rel

    I need a Jay Z “Control” and certainly Kanye…. And just to measure up i’m waiting for Drake to address this lyrically


  • G

    i like how kendrick only mentioned killing these new niggas (drake Sean, etc) but he didnt disrespect the true legends ( like Jay, Em, kanye etc)

  • PrettyMF


    Why would he mention their names? He cant affect them. Kendrick said he’s gonna make their core fans pretty much not care about them…you can’t take away Jay, Em or Nas’s core fans. You just can’t. They are the Michael Jacksons of hiphop.

  • tjp

    Kendrick stans are hilarious. You people forget that he only dissed wack rappers, the only good one he dissed was J. Cole.

    Plenty of rappers would murder Kendrick, and that’s why he knew his limits with this verse.

  • lee

    Awe Kendrick awe!!!! He killed it. R.E.S.P.E.C.T

  • Hip Hop Orangutan

    wow Kendrick… goosebumps yo. shit went hard. took me back to Pac’s energy and don’t hate me for this, but the energy Game brought on 300 Bars and Running back when he was beefing GUnit

  • jdfshdfjk

    Please read the explanations of the lyrics on RapGenius because most of you don’t get them!

  • Swauko

    Very good verse though not memorable and way too long. Kendrick is definitely dope, however to call out those particular Emcees where uncalled for. Those Emcees are reviving hip hop right now and with Kendrick stating the friendship part of it makes it sound completely out of left field. I don’t even think Kendrick’s on Wale level yet, Krit and Cole have both produced their own albums.

  • hipHopsFan

    WOW…… Kendrick went in and shined all about 13 hours on this beat until JOEL ORTIZ got on it….OH MY GOD….. the quoteables in both of these emcees verses is ridiculous….i love the friendly competition only makes for great music for us fans…

    Joel verse^

  • Er

    I swear eminem must hate the fact that he too much of a legend to respond because that’s the field he like to run in…..and truth be told, Eminem would dwarf Kendrick

  • MrHeat

    Kendrick a genius!!!

  • real

    You guys are so simple minded. This isnt even a diss. He just talking to himself on a beat. hip hop is still dead. if you aint uniting your people what are you doing.

  • real

    the bar gets lower and lower in hip hop everyday. Will Miley Cyrus feature any of the rappers who love being seen with her on her album?

  • real

    And ALL these rappers are straight cornballs. I cant even think of a real stand up person in the game outside of Nas. And even Nas dont have the bite that 2pac had. So…its just a bunch of weak minded employees claiming they are the best. A fucking circus.


    stop trying to act like Sean didnt go in on this! OF COURSE Kendricks verse was from another planet but Sean did his thing too!

  • Dr. DRE

    Detox is coming!!!…………….this is chess not checkers…..Black Hippy..Eminem, Slaughterhouse

  • will some one PLEASE go dig up tupac…

  • WorldFamous_Kev

    Sooooooooooooooooo whats the big deal?

  • Kendrick said I’mma Muslim on pork, the King of the Coast, one hand, I juggle them both
    The juggernaut’s all in your jugular, you take me for jokes — brilliant lines

  • @LOL

    Don’t ever diss Jay Elec like that!!!! I’m done

  • That track its all or nothing….big ups man nothing but real talk..

  • I have never had such but deym man a niggar gota say wht he gota say 20000000000likes.

  • static

    Hip hop damn sure isnt dead now…. #kdotamonster #wakeup

    The reason he didnt say shit about Kanye is cause Kanye straight garbage now

    “it’s funny how one verse can fuck up the game” – Jay-Z

  • As a relatively new MC in the South American rap scene, specifically in Venezuela, my country of origin and current residence, I would have to agree with the general consent all these comments above mine conclude. I would have to agree that KLs’ verse murdered Seans and Electronica’s. Kendrick is indisputably one of the most authentic and lyrical MC’s, and he does this effortlessly and frequently. Although to differ from some, I find that most crews and MC’s can get along nowadays. I don’t say there shouldn’t be any name calling or fronting, but, no blood needs to be shed anymore. Rap has lost a lot of iconic MC’s, DJ’s, dancers, etc. Let them kill each other with words, not with guns. Peace everybody.
