Kendrick Lamar also says he is "trying to murder" Big K.R.I.T., Pusha, T, A$AP Rocky, Jay Electronica, Tyler, the Creator and Mac Miller on Big Sean's "Control." Lamar also crowns himself "the king of New York" and "king of the Coast" on the track.

Derek Derico Suavey's insight:

I am glad that Kendrick dropped his control verse. He went back to the main essence of hip-hop that everyone fell in love with. But at the same time he shouldn't have disrespected an entire coast, nevertheless he killed the game.

 

PROs: Brought hip-hop back to its original state and he made people want to rap again.

 

CONs: He stirred up alot of people and caused up roar and beef as well.

I really like what Kendrick is doing here. He alone brought back the competivie side of hip hop back but without the violence. The thing about Kendrick doing this is that a lot of people recognize Kendrick as one of the best rappers out right now currently in his prime.

 

Pros: Bring back the competiton in Hip-Hop a lot of people have already responded to Kendrick "Control" verse.

 

Cons: It can end his career if he cant keep up witht he hype and pressure of the talent that's going to be coming after him. Like how MCs feel from grace before such as Ja Rule to 50 and T.I and Lil Flip.

The young artist made sure everyone knew his name after he shoked the industry with his verse on Big Seans "Control". It is a new hit single by Big Sean Ft. Kendrick Lamar, and Jay Electronica. On this track Kendrick called out the top rappers in the game by name. What he did was bring real Hip-Hop back. In my opinion this is exactly what the industry needed, rappers in this era started to get comfortable and lost their hunger. Leave it to Mr.Lamar to give them a wake up call.

Slightly new rapper (Kendrick Lamar) is calling people out on song with him, Big Sean, and Jay Electronica. He uses verbal assault to make the world feel what he is feeling and it works. After the song was dropped, the raido went nuts.

Hip Hop's Gender Problem

Hip Hop's Gender Problem | Hip Hop articles | Scoop.it
It's clear that hip-hop has a gender problem -- but where do the influences for these images and ideas come from? Perhaps we should be looking at the influences instead of the performers themselves.

I never really looked at hip-hop from this point of view but I am glad I came across this article.

Add Pusha T to the number of rap artists who were not satisfied with their place on the list of MTV's Hottest MCs.
Derek Derico Suavey's insight:

I agree with Pusha-T, he is definately a legend. He also, made very significant points in the interview. I agree with him, he is way more talented and polished than alot of the names on the list but thats hip-hop.

Koi Kryptic Rivera's curator insight, May 13, 2013 12:29 PM

Pusha T should have made the list instead of Future & 2Chainz. He is much more versatile & brings alot more to the table than any other artist has in a long period of time. Not to mention he is one of the greatest MCs to ever touch a mic.
