Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Kendrick Lamar Ready To Talk?

Well, the word on the street is that Kendrick Lamar is just about ready to do some talking. The platinum-seller is reportedly going to do some explaining when he touches down in New York.

Well, as September approaches, Kendrick will be doing his very first post “beef” interview in September. No word on what Kendrick is really going to do or say, but I suspect that he’ll be very easy, because 1) it wasn’t that serious to begin with and 2) he really is flying so very high right now.

Congrats on platinum!

      As opposed to to all the other rapper’s albums in 2012 and 2011 that haven’t even gotten close to Platinum. 2 Chainz, J Cole, Nas, ect… Nas hasn’t had a platinum album in almost 10 years. The only rappers that go Platinum today are Jay Z, Kanye, Drake, Wayne, Nicki, Eminem, and now Kendrick. That’s it. No one else. And this is Kendrick’s first album. First albums usually don’t go Platinum unless you’re already famous before you put it out, which Kendrick was not. So shut up please.

        The importance attached to sales and relevance in rap music is a product of its corporate commercialization and has nothing to do with the culture of hip-hop. In the 80s and 90s, ‘skills’ were the only important criteria; not your twitter follower count, first week record sales, gossip magazine coverage or any of that other plastic hollywood bullsh1t. If you had a hot track or were a dope MC then that was all that was required; you didn’t need a motherfuck1n fanbase of adolescent suburban consumers to determine your worth. Then again hip-hop was an underground street culture whereas rap is a joke.

        Haha! I say that almost daily. That shit is so funny. “Get them niggas Rex!”

        Man the Battle rappers is all that’s left to turn to when I want consistent wordplay and punchlines. I’m hoping that shit blows up and transforms on to the music side. That way I can bump that shit my whip.

        Thank you so much for saying that. Some of these dudes on this board (and people I do music with) always throw numbers around and post sales from Billboard, soundscan etc. as if that makes a difference to us as fans. None of them are record executives, publishers, A&R’s, PR’s, VP’s or ANYTHING of the sort. So why care about the numbers? As you said NUMBERS have NOTHING to do with skill. Look at Nas, Sean Price, Big Boi, Jadakiss… Man the list goes on. Only corporate whores care about numbers, so what’s the motive behind discussing sales… If you aren’t in sales and aren’t making any money off of that artist. I just think people like to look/sound as if they know about music because they visit sites like these and listen to it. Kind of like the idiot who keeps catching cases, then after he thinks he’s a lawyer. Smh.

        Damn Imagine if when KRS dropped The Bridge Is Over all the hip hop heads said stuff like “phuk him he’s broke and not relevant”, “nobody knows you so shut up”. That’s stuff I read when real emcees revolt against what the mindless radio programmed fools believe is hip hop. If my generation was that closed minded, we would have missed out on one of the greatest emcees this culture has ever seen. Cause when he recorded that song he was homeless n trying to get on. 27 years later he teaches at Yale and is still touring the world of off one of the greatest catalogues of music a Rapper has ever accumulated.

        You shut up please. I wasn’t saying anything bad about Kendrick as he is one of my favorite newer artists. I was only being sarcastic. Please tell me something I don’t know regarding who goes platinum and who doesn’t based on the artists you mentioned. Its common knowledge with those people.

        Reasonable Doubt didn’t go Platinum until Feb. 2002. Classic Hip Hop albums rarely go platinum fast, but they stand the test of time.

        Like we can’t go on the RIAA website and find out that

        God’s Son – Released Dec 13, 2002. Certified platinum Jan. 14, 2003
        Street’s Disciple – Released Nov 30, 2004. Certified platinum Nov 18, 2005.

        Talk about “Nas hasn’t had a platinum album in almost 10 years.”

        Yea right…

    Well, they better postpone the global summit and Syrian arms treaty til K.Dot has spoken. People need to be prepared for his monumental declamation. Matter of fact, ‘somebody get Ja Rule on the phone’.

  3. 7yoyo7

    He already made his statement through the track…. Why are people waiting for some “talk” from him?

    TDE better put a new Jay Rock project out soon!

      • Islamic_King

        That’s kind of messed up tho but these cats are all younger than rock so he stepping back and letting them get there shine but on the cool I can respect that, on the other hand I hope people don’t forget about him in the process.

      • Charlie Kelly

      • 7yoyo7

        Yep but hopefully some mixtape will drop between these two. Dude spit crazy bars on the regular.
        I remember when he was on his “Watts series”mixtapes he had kendrick all over the tracks despite the fact that Kdot’s skills were average back then.

    He needs to talk in my opinion, because some people thinking to much of that K.O.N.Y. line. The papoose dude went to far and feeling himself to much homeboy wack as all hell lol on top of that, he need to get ether real quick. Been seeing his interviews K.Dot need to expose that clown. -Alhamdulilah

    This was no beef record the media hyped this up. People seem to forgot what hit em up was like when pac released it, that’s a example of a beef but it’s 2013 yall niggas pants are tight and your hip hop is watered down.
