Kendrick Lamar Fires Shots At Drake During His BET Cypher Freestyle
Ever since Kendrick Lamar started calling out his names in his verse on Big Sean’s “Control,” the world has been patiently waiting to find out what K. Dot will do next. AllHipHop has gotten their hands on an exclusive 15-second snippet from Kendrick’s upcoming BET Cypher appearance at the upcoming BET Hip-Hop Awards and apparently, Kendrick has some choice words for Drake.
“Yeah… 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, high-five… I’m bulletproof/ Your sh*ts a never penetrate, pin the tail on the donkey boy you been a fake…,” Kendrick raps on his freestyle, flanked by his fellow artists of TDE.
Last week, Drake released his third album, Nothing Was The Same, an event that Kendrick is seemingly referencing in his BET Cypher verse. In August, Drake was directly called out by Kendrick in a different verse on Big Sean’s “Control” and in recent times, Drake has been responding to K. Dot’s “Control” verse with various degrees of dismissal. In a Billboard cover story, Drake responding to K. Dot’s verse saying, “It just sounded like an ambitious thought to me. That’s all it was. I know good and well that Kendrick’s not murdering me, at all, in any platform. So when that day presents itself, I guess we can revisit the topic.”
Meanwhile in a recent verse on Drake’s “The Language,” Drizzy delivered some lines that many fans saw as a veiled reference to Kendrick’s verse.
“I don’t know who you’re referring to, who is this nigga you heard about?/Someone just talking that bullshit, man someone just gave you the run-around,” Drake rapped on the song. It is yet to be seen if Drake will respond directly to Kendrick after K. Dot’s latest rebuke of the Toronto rapper.
