Bring It Back: Kendrick Lamar – Monster Freestyle [2010]

blame it on Shake August 13, 2013

Despite what many may think, Kendrick Lamar’s verse on Big Sean’s “Control” wasn’t the first time the Compton emcee called rappers out by name. Back in 2010, in anticipation for (O)verly (D)edicated to drop, Kendrick took Kanye West’s “Monster” and did the following with it…

Ya talking Illuminati, I’m talking eliminating
Everyone including Satan, Lord knows heaven waiting
I’m the best rapper alive! (x3)
Tell Wayne to swallow his pride
Ya niggas talking that jive
I’m talking that Malcolm X
Martin Luther hustles through ya ripping through ya fucking set
I’m the best rapper alive! (x3)
Jigga man should’ve retired
I’m going after Kanye, Lupe Fiasco and Nas
Snoop Dogg and mister Andre, Eminem, Busta Buss Rhymes
Y’all better bust no more rhymes
I’ma start busting your ass
If you walk with a metro, then throw a bus on your ass!

Peace to LB on the reminder.
