Papoose Responds to Kendrick Lamar’s Control Verse

Papoose responds to Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Control’ verse with a caustic freestyle that disses Kendrick, Drake, Big Sean and Kanye West.

After mocking Kendrick’s claim that he is the modern day “King of New York,” Papoose boldly attacks Kendrick and his camp, saying:

“Tell Kendrick and TDE they need to lay off the PCP/ Far from the king, this is the city of BDP/ You’ll never be a real west coast artist like Eazy E/ You f**king joke, we laughing at you like hehehe.”

The verse is a scathing attack at Kendrick and other mainstream artists as well, such as Kanye West, Drake, and Big Sean.

Papoose dissing Kendrick is notable because just two months ago, the Brooklyn rapper had the opportunity to perform on Hot 97’s Summer Jam thanks to Kendrick and the TDE camp, a decision that left a lot of fans scratching their heads and gave the Internet ample ammo to create Papoose-based memes. Even more puzzling was Papoose’s choice to perform ‘Get At Me,’ a street record that does not showcase lyricism and includes an Auto-Tune hook from Ron Browz.

That said, there is no denying Papoose’s ability to rhyme, and he destroys the ‘Control’ instrumental. And this outburst doesn’t come out of nowhere; just one month ago, Papoose obliterated the ‘Versace’ instrumental. Listen to his latest lyrical massacre below.
