The only opposition is this new shit
Lu is saying that the already established, proven rappers have no need to go at each other — they’ve coexisted within the genre for years and have carved out their own niches. Furthermore, they frequently collaborate on each others work (check Yeezus) — so they are certainly not in direct competition. The problem is when new artists come right out of the gate with some record sales, develop an ego and try to take on the OGs.
Another interpretation is that the only adversity Lu will face in Hip Hop is not from other rappers, but from himself and the new stuff he writes — as he is constantly trying to better himself.
