Freddie Gibbs has been throwing a whole lotta hot shade at Kendrick Lamar on his new track, “Vice Lord Poetry.”
Freddie spits nasty bars
On Saturday (Sept. 11), Freddie Gibbs released the new track, and many fans have noticed it shares similar attributes from Drake’s Certified Lover Boy. From the cover to the same “Champagne Poetry beat, Gibbs’ spits beats targeting Mr. Lamar.
In the Drizzy sampled song he spits, “The earth ain’t big enough for both of us, you gotta get done/They say they smokin’ top fives, but you ain’t burnt up the one,” Gibbs raps. “Fuck niggas talking ’bout?/Like every time I hit the booth I don’t leave that bitch with a body count.”
It’s been pointed out Freddie Gibbs’ bars are a response to lines from a recent Kendrick verse. On Baby Keem’s new single, “Family Ties,” Kendrick spits, “The Elohim, the rebirth/Before you get to the Father, you gotta holla at me first, bitch/Smokin’ on top fives/Muthafuck that album, fuck that single/Burn that hard drive (Burn that shit).”
This isn’t the first Kendrick has fallen under jealousy against other rappers (besides Freddie Gibbs). Back in 2013, he angered some with his verse on Big Sean’s “Control,” where he declared to be the king of both coasts.
Almost a dozen rappers came to Kendrick’s head-on with songs, making it one of the biggest viral hip-hop moments of the year. This time there haven’t been the same effects, but obviously, things have been taken personally for Freddie and he’s too ready to get messy in the spirit of competition.
Kendrick seems ready to make his return to the scene after his long break (FINALLY!). He’s lately recorded several songs with ASCAP, driving various to assume his new album is close.
