Rappers from New York have been responding to Kendrick lamar’s “King of New York” claim. Joell Ortiz of Slaughterhouse and Brooklyn responded to Kendrick Lamar and defended his city. The Bronx’s Fred the Godson responded as well. Brooklyn’s Papoose has also responded with a track of his own.
Now, Ortiz’s Slaughterhouse associate Joe Budden has responded with his own verse. We knew it was coming, Joe Budden’s tweets immediately after the release of Controlhinted at it, but have since been deleted. We still have the text though:
All u rappers tweeting….…… hope y’all got bars….. Smh — Joe Budden (@JoeBudden) August 13, 2013
A Cali n—- just said he’s the King of NY & u n—-s so f—ing worried about your relationships, y’all make me sick. — Joe Budden (@JoeBudden) August 13, 2013
Hear Budden’s response:
Many rappers responded to Lamar’s claim to be the king of New York and calling out a generation of rappers on Twitter. Lupe Fiasco took a more humorous approach and ghost wrote responses for rappers. Atlanta rapper B.o.B. mimicked Kendrick in his response. Bad Boy recording artist King Los has also responded. Lupe Fiasco recorded a response called “SLR 2.” Meek Mill addressed the verse in an interview with the CBS Philadelphia station. Wale still thinks he is the greatest rapper on the planet.
