For real though, like for real though
Like for real
You know what I'm sayin', I don't even
It's like, niggas must forget who the fuck
Did what the fuck
When the fuck
When niggas was still, not the fuck
Fine then, I say
The “new age”, more specifically Kendrick, must’ve forgotten what people like Lupe has done. This is all said with a yawn-ish type of tone, as if he’s bored with what Kendrick (or other rappers). Lupe has taken many subliminal shots at rappers often times calling them out by name (essentially what Kendrick did with Control); telling them to improve their craft, instead of recycling lyrically sub-par tracks and only as hot as their last beat.
