Kendrick Called Me Out

Wale
isn't trippin one bit over Kendrick Lamar's new lyrics of mass destruction -- despite being personally called out in KL's rhymes -- telling TMZ, he'd be offended if Kendrick DIDN'T threaten his ass.

Quick reminder: Kendrick put the entire rap world on notice Tuesday, dropping an explosive verse in Big Sean's new track "Control," in which he targeted Wale and a bunch of other MCs:

I'm usually homeboys with the same n****s I'm rhymin' wit
But this is hip-hop and them n****s should know what time it is
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale
Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake
Big Sean, Jay Electron', Tyler, Mac Miller
I got love for you all but I'm tryna murder you n****s

Wale was out at LAX Wednesday when we asked about the backhanded shoutout, and he told us, "I'd've been offended if my name wasn't in that sh*t."

As for the best rapper on the planet ... Wale still thinks it's himself. Check the clip.

What KL is sayin is, is that these men are falling victim to fame. He right. And that's why he respects JayZ, and me too. Say what you want but, Diddy, Kanye, Lil Wayne, Chris, etc.... your a shame to the game. You done did every thing foolish and it shows. Nuff respect to Ken.

Remember when Rap was cool. Now its just stupid. These guys that are around now cannot sing, but these idiot homeboys buy their ebonics laced tirades. 80's rap=cool, these guys now just suck and suck badly. You have to have no brain matter left to buy these people's garbage.

That what Kendrick is saying now is time to be more selective with the same intensity & lyrical presence to change the game!!! Radio pushes the ignorant & not that good classic ****!

I've never heard of Wale, so I can see why he's happy about it. But I love his attitude--WAY better than Jay Z and Diddy, and all the other arrogant asses, including Jesus Kanye.

TMZ, wake the world up when rap has the originality, heart and talent of the 80s and 90s. Until then it's just the same boring uneducated BS from wannabe thugs trying to be "gangsta" all saying the same **** over and over.
