Prob the best response out there besides Mickey's
Thumbs up kid.
This was the first good reply IMO.
Dope lyrics, still not on par with King Kendrick
It was dope, But lil homie said he'll kill Kendrick's career on twitter.
Never heard of this kid but this is the best response track so far.
On 1st listen, I think we need to give more credit to Statik for the beat than the lyrical response
this kid is talented, but confused. kendrick isn't dissing jay or biggie. he recognizes that they're already rightfully apart of the throne. they've made their place in hip hop. in my opinion, leaving out the "new kids" such as joey was wise, seeing that joey hasn't even released his debut album yet.... there is no way to say whether or not he has any longevity
let's wait and see if any of the big league players will throw some respones in... Nas, Jigga, Em, 3stacks. Make it one track for our sake
be lucky in love by the young singer, and won praise from renowned singers like Kendrick Lamar.
astro rhymes over the weakest beats, including this one...it was aiiiighhht
Astro, I like you son, but you're just another person that proves that people just listen to music, but don't HEAR what the pearson is saying. It's not a diss record, I don't know why people keep saying that shit. It was a message to his competition that they need to step their game up because he's gunning for them. Which is the reason why he left the new guys out, it's not directed at yall. Too much fucking emotions ruining what's supposed help raise the bar. But, the responses don't surprise me.
Yeah I think a lot of people missed the boat on KDots verse!! Statik brought that real old school vibe with this beat though Astro keep doing ya thing, wasnt much of a response but oh well
Yo.. any one heard the Lupe response.....
damn new york is hella butthurt right now
lol this beat is wack. statik can do better
astro can go harder than this with the flow and lyrics
Lupe Fiasco did a response
He murdered it, definitely one of the best responses.... seriously.
And to all of you stupid ass bitches saying people are misreading Kendricks verse : How the fuck are NY rappers supposed to let a Cali nigga say he's the king of their city? That's the line that set it off, not the name calling bullcrap...
Straight trash. Its funny how Kendrick got these dudes rushing to the studio to record rushed songs. None of those responses was better than Kendrick or even close.
that beat was horrible....
this beats a real toe tapper!
Lupe tried but SLR pt. 1 was way better. Sounded a bit too incoherent jibber jabber
These rappers "responding" to Kendrick sound pathetic. IT WASN'T A DISS. You want to "respond"?!? MAKE BETTER MUSIC! WRITE BETTER RHYMES!
@WhoCares32...I agree completely. Dudes need to stop taking this as a diss and just make better music overall and that means albums, songs and verses...not diss/reply tracks.
These comments sections just prove that blogs are populated by hating ass bitches who know NOTHING about hip hop culture... if someone stepped into your house and said it was theirs, would you accept it quietly? Or would you put up a fight? By most of these responses, I'd say most of you losers would just take it up the ass without saying a word..... get a life. This is what he Kendrick intended. He wasn't walking on eggshells, he wasn't trying do anything other than instigate people to get up off their lazy asses...
Half of you mongrels are barely hip hop literate to understand what this means... start listening to some real shit so you can get the full context before you speak out of your ass... right now most of you sound like you're giving it to Kendrick.
"if someone stepped into your house and said it was theirs, would you accept it quietly? Or would you put up a fight?
Worst analogy I've heard in my life.
this kid is a clown, and so is everyone who clearly MISUNDERSTOOD what Kendrick was sayin. Sensitive thugs, ya all need HUGS!
@Bitchnicca LOL would you have preferred: what if Kendrick fucked your wife? Would you just sit and watch? Maybe you'd go in and suck his dick. Nah man, you're weak, you'd probably just sit in a dark room and complain about how people do you wrong...
Thanks for the comments on my analogy anyway. I'm glad my words stained you panties in blood, bitch.
cant wait for KRIT's response
A lot of y'all have to take in consideration how personal the King of New York title is. The legacy of the birthplace of Hip Hop. I can understand how that Kendrick line can be viewed as merely a competition boost, but it also implies that every current MC from NY is wack. You expect NY rappers to sit quiet because it's Kendrick?
IM STILL WAITING FOR ONE OF THE NEW GUYS TO RESPOND TO KENDRICK AND SO FAR NO ONE FROM THE WEST SAID ANYTHING EITHER PEOPLE FORGOT KENDRICK SAID HE RUNS THE WEST COAST TOO NOT ONLY NEW YORK HOPE CROOKED I WILL. AND WHERE THE HELL IS BUDDENS AND FABS RESPONSE??? GUESS FAB STILL CANT FIND A STUDIO THATS OPEN YET SMFH O AND I HOPE BANKS RESPONDS TOO YOU KNOW THE PLK GOTTA GET IN THIS
New York didn't start hip hop. Just like you niggas claim you invented graffiti hahaha
