Long story short, Kendrick Lamar went in on his most recent 3 minute verse on “Control”, a track with Big Sean and Jay Electronica. He pretty much called out A-List rappers such as J.Cole, Drake, Mac Miller, Big Krit, Wale, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Wale and told them to step their game up. The quote he used to towards all of them is:
“I got love for you all, but I’m trying to murder you niggas. Tryin’ to make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas. They don’t wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you niggas“.
This verse is still going viral and has gotten attention from Phil Jackson, Pusha T, P. Diddy, Joey Badass, Trinidad James, Just Blaze, Mobb Deep, Talib Kweli and more. Check out the Tweets below and all of the verses from Lupe Fiasco, Joell Ortiz, Cassidy, and B.o.B. Cheers.

Every rapper is supposed to feel like Kendrick feels as far as wanting to murder niggas on the mic. That’s why I wrote my “Murder” verse.
