How Kendrick Lamar and Big Sean's Relationship Went Wrong

  • Added:  2 months ago
  • In 24 hours, Kendrick Lamar changed the entire conversation in the rap world. Before K-Dot ominously released the cover art for what became the release of "The Heart Part 4," folks were still glowed tf up off of Drake's More Life. It's legit gone from "is Kendrick announcing his album" to "the Beyhive is clapping at Kendrick for his use of the number four" to "oh wait, 'The Heart Part 4' is fire" to "oh, wait, is Kendrick going at Big Sean, though?!" What a time to be a rap fan.

    no one cares... but I just want say that big Sean drake and Kendrick Lamar make great music. GREAT MUSIC. But they're all at the same level in they're careers. now since fame is associated with power influence and respect we have to look at factors outside of music. like character and integrity. things get tricky here bcuz then we can call all these bitches out on their bullshit. but right now its just fucking music so there really ain't shit to be arguing about

    why make the fans choose tho? its not like we can just toss a coin and say ones better than the other so yal both just keep making good music. Kendrick better take his own advice and be humble

    "My uncle doing life inside prison he wasn't wrapped too tight
    He told me rap about life, not rap niggas
    That's why I'm shaking my head when you rap dissin'
    My stomach start turning, my nerves get to twitching
    I start evaluating, then my final intuition
    Is that you wishing a come up, would just come up
    We used to beefing over turf, fuck beefing over a verse
    Niggas dying, motherfuck a double entendre." I remember when that meant something

    1. Kendrick didn't murder Sean on Control.
    2. Do not see a single thing that could show they had any bit of issues with each other. And if Kendrick was talking about Sean in that last part he tip toeing to for not saying Sean name.

    I still think to this day Big Sean had the dopest verse on control, All Kdot did was drop names but I understand why y'all hype his verse up soo much , rappers nowadays are too friendly and pussies when it comes to conflict soo

    Kendrick's verse in Control is straight trash! People just get hyped when he name-drop Drake, Mac Miller etc.. but the actual fact is that he says nothing in that verse.

    let's be honest nobody cared about Kendrick before DAMN. everyone called jcole the goat y'all all dickriders Sean is more lyrical than anyway but both dope and why y'all want to forget about jcole like he wasn't held as the savior now yall putting Kendrick on his thrown cause one album??? j cole dropped a song a while ago I ain't see no hype on it but y'all love Cole so much also Kendrick was always good to me favorite song was "blacker the berry" that shit puts him in the top five but you corny asses ain't praise that like humble or dna even tho it actually has a better and deeper message the fans of Kendrick and Cole are cancer just like every other hype artist y'all been letting two good artist share the same crown not because they're equal but because y'all can't make up your minds

    The craziest thing is that Kendrick didn't "murder" Big Sean on Control, Big Sean's verse as a whole is arguably better than Kendricks verse as a whole. It got so much attention literally only because of the name drops, go back and listen and tell me I'm wrong

  • Reno Shakur

    I hate when niggas say kendrick didnt have the best verse on control he just "name dropped". Thats what made his verse the best dumb asses.. What other rapper u know bold enough to call a nigga out on HIS OWN song like "Yeah nigga I got love for u but Imma kill u in this game." That move was legendary. To say his verse wasnt the best because all he did was name drop would be like saying lil wayne verse on "Welcome to my hood" wasnt the best because all he did was use analogies. Thats what MADE the verse.

    Complex, stop. THP4 was clear shot at drake. Also, "no more interviews" was taken out of context. I think Sean also went at drake when he said "not the shit thats getting the hits and VIEWS, words misconstrued with no credit but u niggas approve" VIEWS?? Words with no credit? Another shot at drake was J coles "false Prophets" when he said "hear some new style bubbling up and they bit their shit"......i mean how many subs t gota take?? Its almost 4 years after control and you plls still tripping over that

    Texas, is my home.
    I got a I-phone.
    All my raps are random.
    Stubbed my toe,
    I think I broke a bone.
    I jammed, my finger.

    I'm a rapper, not a singer, but I still sing a whole - lot.

    IMO Control was about Kendrick wanting a rival, and him taking shots are Drake and Big Sean is seriously like picking a fight with a guy half your size. I hope Joey, Earl or Danny Brown make Kendrick feel less secure on the throne and push him to be better.
