KENDRICK LAMAR WOKE UP HIP HOP WITH ONE VERSE!!!

KENDRICK LAMAR SHOOK UP THE HIP HOP WORLD WITH HIS FEATURED VERSE OFF BIG SEAN'S SONG "CONTROL".   NOW I'M NOT A FAN OF BIG SEAN BUT HIS VERSE COMES ON FIRST AND HIS VERSE IS QUITE NICE,  BUT KENDRICK'S VERSE IS SO HOT IT ECLIPSES BIG SEAN VERSE AND JAY ELECTRONICA'S.  KENDRICK VERSE IS VERY TUPACISH ON THE LINES OF A "HIT 'EM UP" STYLE SONG BUT  ON A COMPETITIVE HIP HOP VIBE.   I LOVE KENDRICK'S VERSE,  I THINK IT'S GOOD FOR HIP HOP.   I REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME I LISTENED TO LAMAR'S ALBUM "SECTION 80" I SAID TO MYSELF "OH OK THIS DUDE BOUT TO BRING BACK REAL LYRICISM.   THE GOOD THING ALSO ABOUT LAMAR'S "CONTROL" VERSE IS THAT IT'S GOOD MARKETING.  IN THE SONG KENDRICK MENTIONED RAPPERS J. COLE, WALE, MEEK MILL, BIG SEAN, JAY ELECTRONICA, TYLER DA CREATOR, MAC MILLER, A$AP ROCKY, PUSHA T, BIG KRIT AND DRAKE.  HE TOOK A DIRECT SHOT AT SOME OF THE HOTTEST IN THE GAME RIGHT NOW.  I MEAN THIS DUDE IS COMING AT RAPPERS HE IS ON A SONG WITH,  KENDRICK IS OUT TO PROVE NO ONE WILL MURDER HIM ON NO TRACK.  ONE OF MY FAVORITE LINES FROM THE VERSE IS WHEN HE SAID "HE A WEST COAST NIGGA WHO RUN NEW YORK" I WAS LIKE AWWWW MAN THIS DUDE THEN STARTED SOMETHING.  AND HE DID, HE WOKE UP ALL THE DEAD HAS BEEN NEW YORK RAPPERS WHOSE WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITIES CLOSED ON THEM.  OUT OF  ALL THE RESPONSE SONGS THAT CAME OUT,  I THINK JOELL ORTIZ AND LUPE FIASCO WERE THE BEST.  BUT I DON'T EXPECT NOTHING LESS FROM THEM THEY ARE CERTIFIED LYRICAL KINGS.  I WAS SHOCKED THAT NONE OF THE RAPPERS MENTIONED BY KENDRICK IN HIS VERSE DIDN'T RELEASE A RESPONSE SONG.  I THOUGHT FOR SURE SOMEONE MENTIONED WOULD SPIT BACK SOME VICIOUS BARS.  I SALUTE KENDRICK LAMAR FOR MAKING HIP HOP A LOT MORE INTERESTING AND ENTERTAINING.  I WILL SAY THIS, IT MAY BE THE DEATH OF GIMMICK RAPPERS NOW AND THE RE-BIRTH OF REAL HIP HOP AGAIN.
