Lot of lower tier rappers tryna rep for they belt
The original Control song where Kendrick famously Crowned himself king of both coast
I’m Makaveli’s offspring, I’m the king of New York
King of the Coast, one hand, I juggle them both
Then called out a bunch of rappers which also caught alot of heat.
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale
Pusha T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake
Big Sean, Jay Electron', Tyler, Mac Miller
I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you niggas
Which lead to many responding and calling themself King of New York, but none of these are the rappers Kendrick actually “called out”.
These are the lower tier rappers he is referring to that is only trying because they don´t stand a chance for example:
Iman Shumpert, Astro and Fred The Godson
He is alluding to the king of New York title as a championship belt.
