Kendrick Lamar may be one of the most promising stars in hip-hop but he may have made himself very unpopular this week after taking jabs at most of rap’s newcomer elite including his friends Drake, Big Sean, Wale and J. Cole.
The Compton star premiered his latest collaboration with Roc Nation’s Jay Electronica titled ‘Control,’ which is expected to feature on Big Sean’s upcoming album ‘Hall Of Fame,’ but it didn’t take long for the track to cause controversy due to Kendrick’s brutally honest lyrics.

“I’m usually homeboys with the same n***as I’m rhymin’ with/ But this is hip-hop and them n***as should know what time it is,” Kendrick raps in his lengthy verse.
“And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale/ Pusha T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake. Big Sean, Jay Electron, Tyler, Mac Miller/ I got love for you all, but I’m tryna murder you n***as/ Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you n***as/ They don’t wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you n***as.”
The jabs have come as a huge surprise to hip-hop fans in light of Kendrick’s close relationship with Drake, who features on the star’s debut album ‘good Kid, m.A.A.d city.’

While fans are shocked by the raw lyrics, they’ve also described it as Kendrick’s best verse ever with the rapper’s name trending on Twitter.
@Nigel_D remarked: “Either Kendrick called you out by name or played you by not mentioning you at all.” @Zalebs said: “The track that everybody is talking about right now! Kendrick Lamar kills everybody on #Control.”
@DJTarget added: “Kendrick went in on that verse tho. I don’t think anyone wants it with him lol.”
@theregoeserg simply noted: “And this is why Kendrick is the best rapper today.”
