Footage from an upcoming BET Cypher has been leaked with a 15 second verse from Kendrick Lamar! Kendrick comments on “Control“, which had his controversial verse where he sent shots at the current hip-hop artist in an attempt to shake up the game.
The verse featured in the video (below) did seem to be a shot at Drake.
“Yeah and nothing’s been the same since they dropped ‘Control’/And tucked a sensitive rapper back in pyjama clothes/Ha ha the jokes on you, high 5. I’m bulletproof/Your sh*ts a never penetrate, pin the tail on the donkey boy you been a fake.”
Is this a reaction to Drake’s verse on “The Language”?
Is this Kendrick starting a beef between him and Drake? Is he trying to shake up the game because a lot rappers have not responded to his verse? Or will Kendrick be dropping a new track, tour or album update in the next few weeks? I would not be shocked if there is a track which features Drake, who just released his album Nothing Was The Same. Drake’s name is on everybody’s lips in the hip-hop industry and taking a lyrical shot at him will make you popular, but for how long?
I do find Drake a strange character, in the past he’s gone to say that he is not interested in sending shots to other rappers, however, his lyrics in “The Language” does open the debate.
