Image

It may be Big Sean‘s song but…Kendrick Lamar‘s verse stole the limelight. Last night Kendrick’s lyrics took over social networks causing a frenzy! Claiming to be the King of Both Coasts, he called out some of his fellow Rap colleagues and Miley Cyrus.

I heard barber shops debate the greats all the time

Who’s the best MC? Kendrick, Jigga and Nas
Eminem, andre 3000, the rest of yall
New niggas just new niggas, dont get involved
And i ain’t rockin no more designer shit
White T’s and nike cortes, this is red corvettes annonymous
Im usually homeboys with the same niggas im rhymin wit
But this is hip hop and them niggas should know what time it is 

And that goes for Jermaine Cole, big krit, wale,
Pusha T, meek mill, asap rocky, drake,
Big sean, jay electron, tyler, mac miller,
I got love for u all but im tryna murder you niggas
Tryna make sure ur core fans never heard of you niggas
They dont wanna hear not one more noun or verb from u niggas

Hip Hop Junkies, what do we think about these bars? We love us some Kendrick SOOOOOO. We see this as good sports.Athletes compete everyday and are friends outside of that. Great Hip-Hop can be the same way. Bars versus bars. Simple as that. No real beef. It’s good to see someone stir up the music world like this. Makes things interesting!

And The Winner Is…

I think that it’s safe to say that Miguel and Kendrick Lamar are killing the game right now. Nicki Minaj also picked up the Best Female Hip Hop Artist for the fourth year in a row and Chris Brown also won the Fandemonium Award for the fourth time as well.  Can’t wait to see who’s up next. Ladies step ya bars up!
