Lupe Fiasco, Mickey Factz And Astro Drop Kendrick Lamar Responses


Kendrick Lamar started a wave in East Coast rap that won’t be slowing down anytime soon. Nearly two days after “Control” released, the response tracks have been pouring in. Surprisingly, the artists who are talking back weren’t mentioned in the song at all.

Today, Lupe Fiasco, Mikey Factz and Astro go after the TDE all-star. Lupe was particularly outspoken on Twitter when the track came out and addressed him here. “He’s so crazy, look at the little baby/ N*gga you ain’t Nas, n*gga you ain’t Jay Z/ You will respect me, you will reject me.” Listen to them below.

    that still wasnt shit he still ate they ass up

  • astro

    astro actually spit bars…but he’s nowhere near good enough to diss kendrick like he did

  • madness

    astro beat dope but he should chill

  • Mike Ilmanen

    Lupe is the only one that came even close to Kendrick… Mickey Factz was just wack and Astro is way too young to call “boy”. How the fuck 16 year old boy could be king of NY? Jay is the King.

    • Erick Sermon

      There’s no age preference to be crowned king of anything. King Arthur became King of Britain at age 15. (I agree Jay is King of NY though)

    • randel

      Jay def aint the king he just old, people fill obligated to listen to Jay-Z but truth be told his style more boring then watching water evaporate. Last album trash only good song was a fucking interlude talkin about beyonce.

    • Sam Young

      Mickeys verse was dope af. You must be mentally challeged.

    • Spitticus

      Jay Z is CORNY

  • Secret Hymns

    Bottom line is Kendrick Lamar injected the hip hop game and got everyone to respond. This is what real hip hop is about.

  • Secret Hymns

    Now to me the only that “bodied” KL is Fred the Godson. Astro killed it to.

    • randel

      Fred has the worst response yet it was direct but was not creative and took no talent. Anyone could of said what he said. Nothing special about that fat nigga.

      • Secret Hymns

        lol, i feel you fam


      Joell Ortiz sonned the track, raised it, married it off and grandsonned the shit. He’s the only one that spoke on the specifics of what Kendrick said. The transformers reference shows me that he actually studied the track before he dropped it. Everyone else is just spitting bars. I mean, King Los’ was nice. Lupe was…. I feel like he had a stroke mid-way through it.

      • Secret Hymns

        Joell def went in

      • 80HD

        Nah he just started rapping in German half-way through

  • Secret Hymns

    As I scroll through some of these post I can tell that a lot of either were to young, not born or must’ve forgot that in the 80′s a lot of rappers that put out records where Astro’s age. Roxanne Shante was 14 when she dissed UTFO!!!!! Please do your homework. If you can rap then you can rap PERIOD.

  • Mr. 116

    Astro needs to go back to the playground and chill. lol.

  • struggles
