Vado Says Kendrick Lamar’s King Of New York Line Isn’t A Big Deal

While some might be sweating Kendrick Lamar’s recent claim of being the King Of New York on Big Sean’s “Control,” Vado doesn’t seem too bothered by it. With his new Slime Flue 4 project dropping today, the Harlem rapper discussed Kendrick’s lyrical assault in a recent video interview. His take on the verse? Not a big deal.

“I don’t feel it’s a big deal,” he says in the clip. “I don’t think the bar was even all that. He just said it. But the verse period, overall was hot. He’s lyrical man, I guess he’s tired of hearing these weak bars out here. I’m tired of it. He just spoke his mind.”

The interview also finds Vado discussing Slime Flue 4, his plans to release a DVD with the mixtape and his recent signing to DJ Khaled’s We The Best imprint. “It’s like when Kobe signed to the Lakers,” he says. “He had to adjust but at the end of the day he had the talent to do it.” Watch the full interview above.

    Kendriick didn’t say he was the king of New York. He used that as an Analogy to say he’s on top of his damn game. I guess people failed reading because they not comprehending what he meant

    I’m important like the pope, I’m a muslim on pork
