TDE’s Top Dawg And Punch Respond To Drake’s Kendrick Lamar Diss


The rumored remix to Future’s “Shit” featuring Drake and Juicy J (and produced by Mike WiLL Made It) finally dropped today, and it contained a few choice words from Drake that have been interpreted as shots at Kendrick Lamar. The two have a history that’s been cordial but chilly in the past few months; as Kendrick helpfully pointed out in his BET Cypher, “Nothing’s been the same since they dropped ‘Control.’” The two have since commented on the rift in separate interviews—Kendrick to GQ, Drake during his CRWN interview—though they publicly have remained friends.

But the “Shit” remix today was the first time Drake has publicly responded on a record, or at least has appeared to. “And if a nigga say my name he the hot shit / But if I say that nigga name he still the hot shit / Fucked up / Lucky I don’t feed into the gossip / Niggas act like they don’t know but they should know / I just think it’s funny how they danglin’ the bait / But I’m the one whose killin’ niggas on the hooks though.” The diss seems to be designed to take shots at Kendrick’s assertion on “Control” that he was out to murder his peers, lyrically.

After hearing the verse, TDE’s hierarchy took to Twitter today to express their disappointment with the response, which both Top Dawg and Punch felt was less than inspired. Were they right?

    this is way better than the control verse kendricks verse was wack as fuck and hyped up he mentioned a couple names. Rhymed murder and heard and thinks hes the king of a city.

    • Desond Alfred

      He wasn’t dissin anyone on Control. It wasn’t better than Kendrick’s verse on on BET cypher, where he did go at him.

  • Tel

    Don’t really see it as a diss. Cole’s response wasn’t a diss either. But for the record could ether drake ass… I’m a huge Cole fan and people sleep on his bars. I respect his stance to make real music to try to paint pictures as his idol nas did… But he also would ether drake

    • Whatyofeetsmelllike

      Nope. Kendrick a fucking lame.

      • SO What!!!

        Boy, oh, Boy!!!! gotta love the drake fans LOL!!! Got you wack ass fags foaming at the mouth!!!

        Bitch Ass Drake still owe Niggas in da Chi money…

        • Whatyofeetsmelllike

          Drake the king in everybody city. He has the biggest selling tour. Kendrick and Kanye together didn’t equal him and Eminem didn’t either. Drake is king. I’m white and buy music tell them niggers to buy their music and have them sales up because ain’t nobody looking at niggas who ain’t never gonna rise.

    • Whatyofeetsmelllike

      Lol “Real Music” is an excuse for this nigga aint popping but I like him

  • chitown

    drake aint got NOTHING on kendrick, kendrick would murder drake just because drake been in the game longer dont mean nothing kendrick been running stuff kendrick bars are INSANE.

    • Whatyofeetsmelllike

      Except sales,fans,nominations,money and women.


        You’re an idiot and know nothing about ACTUAL hiphop.. K.Dot fan base is constantly growing, nominations are on the way and I’m sure any bitch Drake has fucked, would jump on Kendricks also cuz she a groupie.. Drake also has ghost writers.. Along with the rest of YMCM.. So, TDE wins in this dispute cuz dudes actually make their own music.

        • Whatyofeetsmelllike

          lol Drake doesn’t have ghostwriters,but Kendrick does. Kendrick was ass 4 years ago Drake was always spitting hard before fame. Also you’re a idiot. Fan base don’t mean shit if them albums ain’t moving haha

          • casarezrich

            Drake is first an R&B artist, than a so-called rapper, so the advantage is with him in that area of sales, but Kendrick Lamar is more of a lyricist and pure rapper. The Hip-hop community will follow K-Dot longer in the long run, and if Drake continues tomake garbage like that “Shit” track well then his career will be over soon. Drake honestly has a recycled flow, slick flow, but no originality. Kendrick has a style that will bring out lyrics (Pure). And what does your white comment have to do with anything? You’re on a Black site! Haha to that!

          • Whatyofeetsmelllike

            Didn’t read that book you just wrote me lol

          • casarezrich

            Because you hide from the truth. If you give “Shit”, you should be able to accept something pleasant.

          • Gerald Hawkins

            Drake is first a rapper. Idk know where this R&B label comes from. He has more songs rapping than singing. They’re both lyricists. Kendrick has a recycled flow…it’s HIS OWN. He repeatedly uses the same flows and style on every song. That’s why people like it. It’s continuous but new at the same time. Because Drake is also a singer he has more flexibility as far as what he can create. Drake’s not a original? Please tell me what music artist he is copying then…

        • Gerald Hawkins

          You know less about hiphop.

  • Jacob McKinney

    If you think this song is a diss you are a dumbass

  • Maurice T

    Stop. just stop.Kendrick’s better lyrically, but Drake is better commercially. Both of them put out solid music.This “beef” doesn’t even exist all media and hype.

    • Gerald Hawkins

      Stop, just stop. At best Kendrick is equal to Drake lyrically.

  • Rick James

    Sing About Me, Dying of Thirst….nuff said

  • Alan

    This is just the media trying to make something out of nothing. This wasn’t a dis. Jesus people…do we really want to see them battle that bad?

  • Jr.777Ghost

    Feel sorry fa all you Kendrick / K-Dot Fans didn’t get an album from him dis year #He’sAllTalkNoBite

  • Jr.777Ghost

    Tell K-Dot ta come ta OVO for a better deal #He’sGonnaNeedIt

  • Cocaine Howie

    Drake vs. K.Dot is simply a case of Manufactured Talent vs. Raw Talent.

    • Gerald Hawkins

      Yeah all that raw talent but Jay Rock was on before him… Everyone forgets that Drake was independent too and got a hip hop mogul to take a chance on him.
