This song is a must listen. Trending big time because of Kendrick's dope verse. If you don't like this song, you don't like hip hop.

I'd post a vid but the link has the song and and lyrics. Someone can do that for me (I'm on mobile).

Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

Stop with these proclamations.

 

 

This is for THIS generation's of hip hop heads. Good song but MOSTLY based on KL's shock value. Jay EEl always spits and Big Sean is solid as usual.

 

 

Very good lyrical song but it's polarizing to a degree, everyone won't like it

Lol um my opinion. Gonna stand by my statement. Like I said before, there are certain people who prefer a more catchy repetitive rap. This song had rap trending worldwide on twitter

You don't get this everyday. Every verse was good. Kendrick just overshadowed them

Yes, it was polarizing. But that's why it didn't make Big Sean's album.

Like I said in the random thread, nothing special. I like Kendrick, but his verse on this song is getting super blown up.

I see what you mean though, I've heard better from him. It's his mic presence that kills it on this verse. His aggression and flow make it stand out more.

I understand his verse sounds good because of the flow he put on it and then the shock value of him naming other current rappers, but as far as his bars go, they're nothing special.

HNHH said it wasnt going to be on Seans album because of sampling issues.

Yea, they couldnt get the rights to use the song so Big Sean just released it as a free single.

Overblown, yes. But Kendrick just murdered, and this is coming from a guy who doesn't even really like him.

This is one of the best moments in hip hop history. Yes, history.

Kendrick just put every single rapper on their toes with ONE verse. The guys he mentioned in the song and the guys he didn't even acknowledge.

It's all about the music. Rappers these days have made so much money they lost their inspiration.

Diddy's response to this is the best, some [expletive] about how competition in the rap game has run dry and compared this to magic & larry and how their battles reinvigorated basketball
