(AllHipHop News) It has been nearly three months since Kendrick Lamar shook the rap world with his verse from Big Sean’s “Control,” and the responses from Hip Hop artists are still making waves. The latest rapper to weigh in on K. Dot’s naming dropping lines is Young Money’s Nicki Minaj.
Nicki recently spoke with Power 105′s The Breakfast Club. When asked why she thinks Kendrick did not mention her along with his other worthy peers he claimed to want to “murder” lyrically, the leader of the Barbz gave two possible explanations.
“I’m probably in the top five n***as he did mention, so go and do your motherf**King research,” said Nicki, “I also feel like maybe he’s one of those respectful gentleman that probably felt like I don’t want to say a female’s name, or maybe he just don’t think the kid is ill.”
The other bars from “Control” that had many East Coast emcees jumping to reply to Kendrick where the ones where he named himself the “King of New York.” Being a Queens native, Nicki countered that statement with her own proclamation.
“I’m the Queen of New York. I’m the King of New York,” added Nicki. “Let me tell you why. Platinum albums. Plural. Number one in five motherf**king countries. Don’t play with me.”
The “Roman’s Revenge” rapper left one final half-jokingly response for her competitors.
“When you got an album that go number one in Japan, and the U.K., and Australia, and America at the same motherf**king time, and Canada, then you can speak my motherf**king name b*tch.”
