During the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards, held in Atlanta last weekend, Kendrick Lamar participated in the well known Cypher and rhymed, “Yea and nothing’s been the same since they dropped Control and tucked a sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes. Ha-ha, jokes on you. Hi-five, I’m bulletproof…”
Competitive words coming from the Compton, California Hip-Hop artist, who Instagram’d a video clip from his verse on the Cypher, with the caption “Kill ‘em?” just a week before the show aired. Apparently, Kendrick Lamar was more than serious when he said, “I got love for y’all but I’m trying to murder you niggas,” in his verse on Big Sean’s “Control,” which has received much controversy and even more notoriety since it’s release in August. He may have done just that when he spit for two minutes straight during BET’s the Cypher, along with fellow Top Dawg Entertainment signees, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, and Isaiah Rashad. So, what do you think, did Kendrick “Kill ‘em” or has hip-hop been missing it’s lyrical competitiveness for so long that they were already dead (as in not on his level skills wise)?
