You can’t buy the publicity Kendrick Lamar is getting right now – even the greatest NBA coach of all time Phil Jackson is sending tweets his way. After shaking up the game with his feature verse on Big Sean’s “Control (HOF),” the Rap community has gotten either defensive, inspired, emotional or a bit of all three.
K. Dot pushed the envelope as he put the likes of Drake, A$AP Rocky, J. Cole, Tyler, The Creator, Pusha T and more on his dinner plate. Also how we can forget about his “King Of New York” claim when he is representing the West Coast?
As expected, rappers have responded in one way or another to Kendrick. A few bigged up his efforts via social media, some cooked up an original response and others went into a mad scramble to secure the “Control (HOF)” instrumental for their own comeback purposes on audio.
Good, bad or indifferent, here are the most up to date rapper replies from the likes of B.o.B., Los, Meek Mill, as well as Styles P offering Joe Budden the fair one, in the following pages.
