blame it on Shake October 4, 2013

After a snippet of Kendrick Lamar’s BET Cypher verse leaked on the net, many initially thought it was was filled with Drake subliminals. Upon further digging though, the internet seemingly changed it’s mind and Papoose seems like the actual fit for K. Dot’s shots. Taking advantage of the olive branch, Pap spoke with XXL about the ongoing situation between the two and his plans of responding.

You’ve gone back at Kendrick in the past with a verse. Are you planning on that this time?
Yeah yeah, he can’t fuck with me. He’ll never be able to shine my shoes, lyrically. So I’m just gonna be able to continue to prove that, to show and prove, like I did on “Control.” This is hip-hop, I love hip-hop, but I just want to continue to show and prove that he can’t fuck with me lyrically. You can look forward to that in my next release, straight up. I live in the studio, that’s my second home. So yeah, I’m definitely going to respond.

Are you going to wait to hear the full verse?
I don’t gotta wait, he’s very predictable. I already know what he’s capable of and what he’s gonna say; he’s very predictable. I don’t gotta wait. I can go right now and crush that little 15-second shit he did. That ain’t even about nothing. The guy’s predictable; he’s a very predictable artist. I already know what he’s gonna say before he even says it.
