Kendrick Lamar Reveals Who The Real Kings Of New York Are

Posted By on July 21, 2014

Rapper Kendrick Lamar shook up the hip-hop world by claiming he was the “king of New York” on Big Sean’s “Control” last year and now the Top Dawg Entertainment standout has come forward to reveal who he really thinks are the kings of NY.

In Kendrick’s opinion, music mogul Jay Z and the late Notorious B.I.G are the real kings of New York.

On Lamar’s earth-shattering verse he called himself the King of New York, a claim he shies away from now: “I feel B.I.G. and Jay will always be the King of New York.” More important, Lamar called out nearly every rapper in his generation–from A$AP Rocky to J. Cole and even Big Sean and Jay Electronica–and claimed, “I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you n*ggas.” (Complex)
