Now this is a nice way to end your day or night. According to Sean, this track doesn’t make the final cut on his upcoming Hall of Fame drop due to sample clearance issues. SHAKE UPDATE: Explicit/CDQ added.
And let’s just say Kendrick set social media ablaze this evening with a few note-worthy lines. Starting with a self-proclamation that is bound to ruffle some feathers, the Compton emcee states “I’m Makaveli’s offspring/ I’m the King of New York/ King of the coasts/ One hand, I juggle them both.”
Followed shortly by a series of bars that leaves no room for misunderstanding… when it comes to this rap shit, Kendrick is out to kill anyone that stands in his way. And that goes for all his homies as well, from J. Cole to Drake.
I’m usually homeboys with the same ni**as I’m rhymin’ with/ But this is hip-hop and them ni**as 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 ni**as/ Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you ni**as/ They don’t wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you ni**as.”
As expected, artists are beginning to share their responses. Most are just Twitter updates, but so far Joell Ortiz, B.o.B and Fred the Godson have offered actual musical responses.
