I feel like This Kendrick Hype is a conflict every rapper in TDE is facing
First off, before yall pencil ass niggas start fuckin judgeing me i need to tell you this. This is a high thought. Im stoned and i feel like this would be an interesting topic. I believe kendrick is one of the greatest ever.
All from a verse and a good ass album and skill, Kendrick is getting all sort of titles at the moment. (Nas of the westcoast, King of New york, yada yada, Kendrick lamar and black hippy).
Now if i was either Ab-Soul, Jay rock, Schoolboy ot those two other rookies, at the moment i would be pretty fucking upset. Hardly anyone ( i feel ) is giving everyone else in TDE the credit they deserved in that cypher. Now in a way the, the attention focusing on kendrick should be like a wake up for the niggas in TDE to step up their game even more if they want the same attention.
I mean, it would get really annoying if i was like ab-soul and i dropped an album that i put so much work in and get some good attention and album sales and then all of a sudden kendrick drops an album ( or better yet, a verse!) that becomes the talk of Hip hop for like a month.
Whatever, i mean i guess thats what happens when your in the rap game.
TDE though is bringing in the benjamins.
Scotty Pippen was cool with the attention MJ got and everything was good. So..
I think within Black Hippy, they’re cool with competition, and are all for going as hard as possible. So they’d be the last to want Kendrick to calm down just cause they’re getting overshadowed, they’re just gonna work harder. The problem comes with stuff like the XXL cover and the whole Kendrick & Black Hippy thing, that’s messed up. And it’s not surprising, media gains off creating tensions like these. That shit sells.
I am telling you Drake and Kendrick are going to leave each others labels. Kendrick will turn into Kanye and Drake will be Hov just wait and see. Those two will be legends. About black hippy Kendrick will have so much success that he will leave and people will soon forget about them.
This ain’t no Pippen/ MJ relationship…All these niggas are essential on the same level as a MC…So if there is any comparison to be made from sports this is more like a 4x100 millimeter race or bobsled team…all of them have there own unique skill set that equally contributes to the team…to say one person is better is highly bias. So with that being said how do you compete for attention when your boy who is getting attention from talking mad reckless to everybody in the game? Do you really want all of TDE firing shot at everybody…I don’t, HIP HOP doesn’t need that much competition. Minus some of the covert jabs he threw at Aubrey and Papsmear you’re left with a the same verse the other 3 spit. Same could be said for Control..take away the Rah Rah from that too and you’re left with a normal verse. That’s just how Hip Hop is, Tupac is consider the greatest and the only bars I know WORD for WORD is his diss he made for BIG, but that doesn’t make that his best song nor is it best example of his usual content.
They don’t have to be better than Kendrick to have successful careers.
Working with him will probably help them step up their respective games and release better music. And I doubt they’d be any more successful stepping out of Kendrick’s shadow.
If drake goes down this singing route farther than he already is, he will not be considered a legend. I just dont get how you call yourself a rapper and sing about some old bull shit. Drake is the only music i play when im with a hoe.
I can see why you think they will leave their labels, but i dont think that will happen . It would be a scumbag move of drake if he left Young Money because if it wasnt for weezy he would have probally still been underground when he was poppin. And drake is the only reason why income is coming in to YMCMB.
Kendrick would also have the same mentality as drake when it comes to leaving his record company. TDE Is probally what kept him off the streeet and provided guidance to excell in his career, so once again it would be a scumbag thing to do.
But then again, anything can happen.
There is no group where everyone is on the same level. There is always going to be one person that outshines everyone.
I bet Schoolboy’s and Soul’s album will be crazy good just because they want to prove that they r on the same leve, if not better, than Kendrick
-That would be like the ASAP Mob being mad at Rocky
-That would be like Pro Era being mad at Joey
-That would be like OF being mad at Tyler
I’m pretty sure every clique has that one person that blew up, and ain’t nobody catching feels.
Thats the way cliques go tbr, one member or two if ya’ll luck end up blowing up , and the rest of them end up in the background. I get what soulo was saying in his tweet tho, Even though Dot is the one who blew up, it ain’t like he started BH or nothing. They keep on saying shit like “Kendrick Lamar and black hippy” and thats some dumb shit tbr.
Kendrick was actually just talking about that before the Cypher
This is exactly why I’m glad that Chance never signed with them. He would have been pushed back to the bushes w the quickness.
I remember watching an interview Soul and Q had a while back and they pretty much agreed that Kendrick’s the “Jordan of Black Hippy”. In every group there’s always someone that stands out. Not necessarily more talented than the rest but the person tends to be an embodiment of what the said group is all about. Kendrick just happens to be that dude. Now, I understand if the rest get agitated that Kendrick’s drawing most of the attention but that attention can and will benefit the rest of the Black Hippy collective in the long run. Soul, Q, Rock or Rashad would probably never eat the same way Kendrick’s eating but they’ll definitely eat nonetheless. If that will be enough for them tho, only time can tell.
I loved Jay Rocks cypher verse! It was insane but I agree with @Deivid every group has the one that stands outs and for Black Hippy, that someone is Kendrick.
