Kendrick Lamar Disses Meek Mill On Stage

King Kendrick

King Kendrick

If you missed it earlier this week, Meek Mill  dissed Kendrick Lamar on Monday, September 9, 2013. In response to Kendrick’s “Control” verse about him, Meek Mill dropped “Ooh Kill Em.” Of course, K Dot wasn’t going to let this stand.

In BET today, they had a story about Lamar giving it back to MMG (Maybach Music Group) in NYC on 9/10. During a performance at Williamsburg Park in Brooklyn, Kendrick Lamar shot back by calling out Meek Mill.

According to AllHipHop, K Dot shouted, ”I been doing this s–t for years, I mastered this s–t. I have no time for irrelevant n—–s [or] new n—-s.” He didn’t stop there, going on to call out Meek Mill personally, saying, “There’s one n—a in particular that needs to realize that there’s ‘levels’ to this s–t. I’m motherf–king King Kendrick.”

It all started because of K Dot’s Control lyrics where he declared himself King of New York – even though he represents Compton in California. Twitter was on fire after the show with fans and haters both reacting to his words on stage in Brooklyn.

“King of what? “Somebody please tell me,” Meek Mill asked in one tweet. When he didn’t get an answer 8 minutes later, he tweeted again – “Let me RT @MeekMill: King of what? @kendricklamar”

Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid, M.A.A.D City

Kendrick Lamar, the meticulous craftsman, comes up with a major debut release for this year – Good Kid, M.A.A.D City. He is very particular about his linguistic details and narrative arc. The greatest gift of Lamar is his ability to draw the attention of the listeners and yet maintain an alienated detachment.

The first thing that you will going to listen in this album is a prayer saying, “Thank you, Lord Jesus, for saving us with your precious blood”. A voice murmurs this prayer and creates an ambience of a family gathering at the dinner table. This album is a reflection of this rapper’s life path right from his childhood in Crompton up to his modern mind state.

The snapshot reveals an unvarnished glancing into the inner life of this rapper. The autobiographical intensity is the calling card of this album. While you listen to this album, you will feel like you are walking straight into the childhood of Lamar. The album is such that in the very next moment, you will seem to be growing along with Lamar.

Good Kid, M.A.A.D City is more like a short movie than any album. It strings every song with a thematic thread to one cohesive narration. The entire story is weaved through variety of themes before it reaches the climax on “Sing About Me, Dying of Thirst”. In this album, Kendrick touches the general mayhem that anyone might have to face while being raised in Crompton and also regrets over the alcoholic culture associated with success in this place.

The album offers you moments of absurdity, seriousness, stupidity and frivolity. You know it is because of all these elements that the album is bound to strike a mark in your mind. Why only the thematic strengths, the Good Kid album is stylistically excellent as well. The consistent production effort that flows with this album’s tone partially contributes to this stylish excellence.

When the story focuses on the intense moments Kendrick’s tempo seems to ramp at high speed while in introspective segments he oozes with pretty confidence. He crafted the lines with much care. “It’s deep rooted, the music of being young and dumb/ it’s never muted, in fact its much louder where I’m from.” – is a fine example of his crafting of the lines.

The tune of the songs is delivered with such smoothness that they just pass the ears of the listeners. Good Kid is among those rarest albums that suit the interest of general hip-hop listeners as well as underground fiend. This album offers a dense and varied listening experience which is an emotional outburst rather than any assured statement.

It is better to say that the album of Good Kid, M.A.A.D City is a potent exploration. It is one of the most interesting albums in rap music. True end of this album occurs towards the end of the song “Real” representing that spiritual victory towards which the entire story of the album is directed. If you want to really understand that album, you have to listen to it. So, hear it today!
