R&B songstress, Erykah Badu, suggested that “Drizzy” Drake responds to Kendrick Lamar’s infamous punchlines that surfaced online after the recording for the BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher.

“Drake, you gotta come-back boy. . . this is Hip Hop.,” (via Erkyah Badu’s Twitter Oct 4th)

The original incident started on Kendrick Lamar’s verse to “Control” by Big Sean ft Jay Electronica.

Kendrick Lamar:

I heard the barbershops spittin’ great debates all the time
Bout who’s the best MC? Kendrick, Jigga and Nas
Eminem, Andre 3000, the rest of y’all
New [dudes] just new [dudes], don’t get involved
And I ain’t rockin no more designer [stuff]
White T’s and Nike Cortez, this is red Corvettes anonymous
I’m usually homeboys with the same [dudes] I’m rhymin’ wit
But this is hip hop and them [dudes] should know what time it is
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, 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 [dudes]
Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you [dudes]
They dont wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you [dudes]
What is competition? I’m tryna raise the bar high
Who tryna jump and get it? You better off tryna skydive
Out the exit window of 5 G5’s with 5 grand
With your granddad as the pilot he drunk as [censored] tryna land

Many other Emcee’s not mentioned chose to respond.  Drake has yet to confirm or deny that the lyrics from “The Language” on his recently released, Nothing Was The Same album was directed at Kendrick.


I don’t know why they been lying but yo [stuff] is not that inspiring
Bank account statements just look like I’m ready for early retirement
[Forget] any [dude] that’s talkin’ that [stuff] just to get a reaction
[Forget] going platinum, I looked at my wrist and it’s already platinum
I am the kid with the motor mouth
I am the one that you should worry about
I don’t know who you’re referring to, who is this [dude] you heard about?
Someone just talking that [nonsense], someone just gave you the run-around
[Dudes] downplaying the money but that’s what you do when the money down
I don’t waste time putting money down

While filming the Cypher segment of the BET Hip Hop Awards 2013 that airs Oct 15th, Kendrick Lamar chose to respond with the following

Kendrick Lamar:

Yeah…and nothing’s been the same since they dropped “Control”
And tucked a sensitive rapper back in his Pajama Clothes
Ha-ha jokes on you, high-five…..I’m bulletproof
Your sh*ts a never penetrate, pin the tail on the donkey boy you been a fake….
