i just like when people go off for a lot longer than others on a collab track and bring the heat...

i like weezy's verse in this a lot too.. it makes absolutely no sense.. he was probably drunk and high and just freestyling his ass off.. but it worked..

Sucks to be Jay Electronica on that track. I'm with T-Wrex tho; it's fun to hear that intense 32+ bar energy.

While everyone is salivating over all this mediocrity, I'm enjoying this right now.

I'm kind of amazed at the reaction this one verse has received.
There are TONS of recorded responses. Kendrick's verse is dope, but really? It's a DOPE verse and that's it. It's not like he raised the bar with that verse. He kind of just...reset it. Thankfully. Hopefully him resetting the bar will actually stick for a while.

I don't think it's any secret that lazy rap has been popular for a while now. So popular that the new generation of casual rap listeners may not have even understood that emcees have the ability to snap the way that Kendrick did on that verse. To them, it's like he invented the wheel or something. I don't know.

I think this is getting so much attention because it is the best rapper in the game telling everyone and showing everyone that he is the best. When karupt or 50 cent or royce say it, no one agrees so its like, oh okay a rapper talking shit. With Kendrick, he has the technical skills as well as the ability to make listenable albums and songs.

So many lyrically lyrical rappers who try so hard, can't make a decent song or choose quality beats or actually convey emotion within their effort to be smart and wordy. I guess it's why kendrick is so compelling. Right now he has it all, except for maybe (like Nas) a huge personality.

But he sounds so hungry right now. I think that's the biggest thing about this verse. It sounds hungrier than anything coming from any even mildly popular rapper.

It's refreshing as fuck, and I'm not on the "rap needs to be saved" trip at all. I'm just happy to see someone of that ilk succeed.

It is interesting which rappers and regions he completely stayed away from though.

I agree that it's refreshing. I also think it's funny how he kinda picked on NYC, which has not produced many great rappers in many, many moons.

It's a dope verse delivered by someone who sounds hungry. How often do you hear that in the mainstream anymore? It's been all about attitude over skill for quite some time. I'm happy as hell for Kendrick. He deserves all the praise he gets. Hopefully this fire everyone is fanning finds its way under the right asses.

That'd be nice. But I think we'll just get a new wave of emo posturing. That's my predick.

I've still only listened to the verse once. Don't plan on listening again. I'm just enjoying the moment.

I'm wondering when an old hack indie rapper is going to try to kickstart some Kendrick shine.

Is Joe Budden old and indie enough for ya?..



Kills it....


This is for B.I.G., Suicidal Thoughts, Coogi printed
This for Nas, army jacket with the uzi in it
Not no Shiny Suit shit, this that 92 Knicks
This for Hov's missing 92 bricks
For State Prop and Beans, to when the L.O.X. first burst on the scene
For Queens, Pac and even Idi Amin
This for the Mobb and the purple tape, word to Inspectah Deck
This ain't for the labels nah, Wu said protect ya' neck
This ain't a diss, I don't want it to get spun wrong
And this for Big L, the block that Joe found Pun on
This shit is for Stack, I ain't talking a G
Nigga I'm talking a G!! My nigga talking on me
This is for every living rapper ever walked in these streets
And any outsider that happen to think that a portion is sweet
Niggas been killed for less and got a coffin for free
If you ever been in the hood, I think we all should agree
This for every nigga that took what you said in stride
I couldn't abide, some of us still take pride
