Kendrick Lamar

Rips Lame Diss Tracks

TRY HARDER BITCHES!!!

091113_kendrick_lamar_launchKendrick Lamar's got words for all the MCs coughing up weak ass responses to his explosive "Control" verse ... telling TMZ, "THEY GOTTA TRY HARDER."

We don't need to recap, but we will: Kendrick dropped bombs on every rapper in the game last month, calling out nearly a dozen fellow MCs BY NAME in his verse on Big Sean's new track "Control." Among the lyrics ...

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

Scores of rappers have since responded to the verse -- including Meek Mill and dozens who weren't even mentioned on the track -- but King Kendrick's not impressed ... at all.

He did show some love for Diddy though, despite Diddy blasting him on Instagram. Check the clip.

Who gives a **** TMZ? I remember reading this post some TMZ yahoo made about Lamar's "explosive nuclear verse" or some crap like that. Why do you act like this is the most important news in your entire lives, some rapper dude insults another in a song... You hip hop sheep are laughable sometimes. You'll throw money at these idiots no matter how ****ty their music is, you'll eat it up and ask for more.

OMG OMG DID YA HEAR WHAT HE SAID!!! AHMGAOD HE JUST SERVED THE ENTIRE RAP GAME AAAAHH AHHH ARGGGGMAHGAWD I CAN'T BELIEVE HE JUST SAID THAT *HEAD EXPLODES*

I dont get it...if u dont listen to rap/hip hop and u dont know the ppl mentioned in this story then y even comment? You have no real idea of what real hip hop is or what it means in our community to have a real mc spit a hot a 16...do u? Any hoo i think kendrick is challenging todays rap artist to step it up because hes coming for the crown. I admit hiphop aint wut it used to be n times have changed but its part of the competition. Alot these rappers that r hot today wont be relevant in the next 5 minutes once the new fad comes out...hats off to Kendrick for making mcs work a lil harder. And no it doesnt hav to end n bloodshed (pac n biggie) its competiton...do better give us fans real music.

FYI: Just so everyone knows - There is someone who is cloning me (and a lot of other people) and is posting on all the boards. If you don't believe me - click on his avatar and then mine you will see for yourself. This person steals other people's avatar's and nick names then hides behind a proxy server and posts on all the boards. Beware: This person may very easily clone you also! So Heads Up!!

**** this ***** 1st of all he just got in the game of hip hop and he call in himself the king ......little man need to fallback and his stupid yes men he got hyping him up......when 2pac dissed biggie and vice versa it wasn't intentional at first it was more personal than anything then it became somethin else entirely....but for Lamar to come out his face and pretty much disrespect these so call rappers which we don't really have anymore nowadays is a pathetic effort to push and sell records .....sad really when u think about it ......I understand Jay-z philosophy on not responding to whack diss records "I refuse to make you famous" ...mentality if ain't personal then why even bother but if it's for sport cuz u bored and trying to start something for no reason then shut your corny ass up and make you stupid little records that YOU THINK IS HOT until you realize this a grown man game not for whinning little princess like Kendrick lamar
