Kendrick Lamar Allegedly Takes Aim At Big Sean In Unreleased Track [AUDIO]
A snippet of two bars from an unreleased Kendrick Lamar song is circulating on the internet, and it’s leaving fans saying, “D*mn! Is K. Dot beefing with Big Sean?” Though the song may be old, rumors of tension between the two rappers have have been buzzing for years now. This clip of Kendrick seems to confirm a beef. He rapped:
“I think his false confidence got him inspired / I can’t make them respect you, baby. It’s not my job”
He continued, hinting at the title of Big Sean’s debut album:
“You ‘Finally Famous’ for who you date, not how you rhyme / cute a** raps, get your puberty up”
The song is no longer available on the Soundcloud profile it was originally posted to.
Neither Big Sean nor Kendrick Lamar have ever publicly addressed the other, but tensions, reportedly, surfaced when Big Sean’s song “Control” featuring Kendrick and Jay Electronica wasn’t included on his “Hall of Fame” album in 2013. In Kendrick’s verse on the song, he proclaimed to be the best rapper in the game at the time – dropping names of several of his hip-hop peers. He rapped:
“I’m usually homeboys with the same n*ggas I’m rhymin’ with / But this is hip-hop, and them n*ggas should know what time it is / And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big K.R.I.T., 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*ggas / Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you n*ggas / They don’t wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you n*ggas”
Big Sean explained “Control’s” absence from his album in an interview with Complex with a hint of irritation:
“There’s a lot of negativity on that song, and I don’t fuck with negative shit. People love drama, people love bullshit. I knew when Kendrick did that name-dropping that it was just gonna set it off, and I could see why people gravitated towards that verse for that reason.”
Do you think Kendrick Lamar and Big Sean are beefing? Let us know in the comments.
