I can’t remember when a verse had as much buzz as Kendrick Lamar’s lyrics on “Control.” While everybody and their mothers have issued responses nothing can compare to the original. Where do you stand on this? Was he dissing all the names he dropped? I saw that Game tweeted ‘Get em’ to Kendrick but I think he’s missing the point. I think the artists who were named are the cream of the crop in the rap game right now. If you weren’t mentioned (like Game wasn’t), then Kendrick doesn’t even hold you in that regard as the best MC’s in rap. It’s been the topic of discussion everywhere this week and I would love to know your opinion. Either way, I love this shit. But that King of New York line, c’mon son.
Here are my 3 fav responses to Kendrick’s lyrics in “Control”:
1. Grafh “Control Freestyle”
2. Joell Ortiz “Control Freestyle”
3. Cassidy “Control Freestyle”
Here are a few more of my fav tracks of the week…
Gunplay “Drop Da Tint”
It’s been a minute since ol’ Don Logan dropped some new joints for us and for a lot of his fans we were worried his problems with the law were going to keep this guy off the mp3 format. Never. Gunplay is back to his old habits and this joint is straight hood. There’s nothing else to say.
SomeKindaWonderful “Reverse” (Oliver Nelson Remix)
We’re just over half way through the year and I have to say Oliver Nelson is so far my artist of the year. This Swede has an incredible work ethic (dropping new tracks almost every week), but he also has a perfect ear for remixes. He seems to take songs and give them a very funky vibe, without altering the soul of the original. I can’t get enough of his latest creation.
Zeds Dead “Jericho”
The Toronto Zombies known as Zeds Dead have dropped another nuke for your ears to melt to. Jericho is everything you expect in a ZD joint. Make sure you grab your tickets to their show when they come to your town, because there’s listening to Zed and then there’s listening to Zed live.
New Music. It’s what we do.Tweet
