Kendrick Lamar And Schoolboy Q Break Down BET Cypher

Posted By on October 17, 2013

The rap game hasn’t been the same since Kendrick Lamar dropped the now iconic verse on Big Sean’s “Control” a few months back. Everyone was waiting to see if K.Dot would deliver more verbal assaults during his BET Cypher with the rest of the TDE family.

As expected, Kendrick did not let down. Especially with bars like this :

I hate y’all, I’ll do anything to replace y’all
Shout out to Face Mob. A ghetto boy ’til I’m unemployed with a day job
And kicking boxes, I kick a** and then kick knowledge
I’m way more polished than 99 percent of the scholars
You thought had graduated
I’m the master that masturbated on your favorite MC
And to the industry that wanted me assassinated
You either corny or an opportunist
I let you eat now go back to church and steal crackers at communion
What I’m doing
I’m about to crack the Da Vinci code, yeah
And nothing’s been the same since they dropped ‘Control’
And tucked a sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes
Ha, ha, joke’s on you”

SchoolboyQ was recently at Sway In The Morning and touched on how people are reading way into the TDE Squad’s verses during their cypher:

“I think that we dropped so many of them lines that people are now starting to catch anything we do,” said the rapper. “‘Oh, he’s talking about—.’ You know what I’m saying? So, nah. Everybody thought I dissed Jay Z when I said ‘What’s 50 grand to a mothafucka like me?’ I just said his line. So, people just digging too deep, but that was a shot at every rapper that have been throwing stones at us…These the same rappers that was dissing us or throwing our names in a verse or speaking of my homie, the same nigga that just asked me for a verse.”

During the interview, Sway convinced Schoolboy to call up Kendrick and get his take on his BET cypher verse, to which K.Dot simply replied:

“That was just us having fun, as usual,”
