While the responses have poured in to Kendrick Lamar's "king of New York" line in his verse on Big Sean's song, "Control," the Compton rapper has remained silent, until now.
No doubt K. Dot has heard some of the disses aimed at him from other rappers and knows quite a few New York City artists are upset, but in a conversation with Big Boy's Neighborhood he says some people misinterpreted what he meant.
"I didn’t know there would be so much speculation, I just want to rap," Kendrick said during his conversation with Big Boy. "I think it’s a case of maybe I should dumb down my lyrics just a little bit. The irony of that line is that the people who actually understood it and got it were the actual kings of New York, you know, me sitting down with them this past week, and them understanding, it’s not actually about being the king of whatever coast, it’s about leaving a mark as great as Biggie, as great as Pac.”
After hearing Kendrick's explanation do you think the responses should stop?
