Meek Mill: I Told Kendrick Lamar I Wanted To Murder Him Before His "Control" Verse (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) We might have uncovered the origins of Kendrick Lamar’s inclusion of Meek Mill’s name in his infamous “Control” verse. During his interview on Hot 97’s The Morning Show, Meek spoke on his early threats towards Kendrick Lamar from 2011.

Around the unveiling of the XXL’s 2011 edition of their Freshman Class, Meek Mill and Kendrick Lamar were on the cusp of blowing up with their respective breakout mixtapes (Dreamchasers and Section.80) months away from release. While both had very little success at the time, Meek reveals that prior Kendrick saying he wanted to murder Meek (and other rappers) on his “Control” verse, Meek was the one being honest about his intentions of a rap takeover:

What Kendrick said on that record–‘I came to murder all y’all’–I forgot, when we did the Freshman class with Kendrick, YG and them. Everybody had to say something, when they asked me I said ‘for real, I came to murder all y’all. I ain’t even gon lie,man. I ain’t gonna fake it. I want all y’all spots. So, I understand when he was coming from.

Meek explains that he has an upcoming documentary which will reveal documents of constant attempts by District Attorney Noel Ann DeSantis at revoking his  probation. According to Meek, he imparts wisdom on the youth of Philadelphia:

My biggest thing with these young kids is, ‘do you want to be a king or goon?’ Goons go to jail, they get a 100 years in jail, they get killed early. I be telling people now,  young boys in my hood, ‘you a triple O G when you take care of your mom, your grand mom, your sister, your aunt. It’s easy to kill somebody. It ain’t easy to move your momma out the ‘hood. Start from nothing.

    and thats why the DA is on his butt

    • Thanx Nerve

      Sadly, some niggas are too dumb to even understand what you say here.

  • therealest1

    Oh bitch please, stop it! Yeah, Meek Mill could kill Kendrick Lamar, with his annoying ass screaming and yelling in his raps.

  • Brindle

    this cat sound ignorant and his advice is so general you’d have to be a simpleton to think it’s worth listening to…

    • TheAkademik

      How does he sound ignorant for re-framing “gangsta” as taking care of your family. Rappers say dumb shit all the time (including Meek), but this wasn’t one of them. Respect his attempt at saying something positive. He didn’t even have to say that.

      • Brindle

        its an immature man that wants to ref-frame the word “gangsta” as now meaning “taking care of your family”, that’s ignorant, how bout just being a “man”… rappers saying dumb sh!t is no excuse and this is another one of them… he’s basically saying nothing, how do you take care of your family, how do you be a “king” and not a “goon”? its stupid, king drug dealer, king pimp, king what? He’s afraid, a coward, unwilling to be a man/gangsta and say “stay out the street, take school seriously, obey your parents and those that deserve your respect, take care of your kids regardless of how ignorant your baby momma is, etc… that’s advise… “be a king, not a goon” is an ignorant and cowardly statement to keep his image in tact, it aint gangsta, its typical rapper ignorance.

      • JP Anderson

        You are…. CORRECT!!!!!!

      • TheAkademik

        no he is not and that approach explains why he would have no influence over youth from hood environments. So when poet and activist, Nikki Giovanni, tattoos thug life on her arm, what is she doing with the term “thug life”? Ya’ll kill me with this shit. Be the same people who are fans of 2pac, but conveniently look past all the ignorance. Nobody is perfect. Malcolm was a “gangsta” in the criminal sense of the word before he went to prison. Imagine if he was never given an opportunity. Stop demonizing young black men.

      • JP Anderson

        And that’s the problem, Meek Mill is ALL about ignorance and it shows:

        My biggest thing with these young kids is, ‘do you want to be a king or goon?’ Goons go to jail, they get a 100 years in jail, they get killed early. I be telling people now, young boys in my hood, ‘you a triple O G when you take care of your mom, your grand mom, your sister, your aunt. It’s easy to kill somebody. It ain’t easy to move your momma out the ‘hood. Start from nothing. -Meek Mill
        Such vague words since HE himself don’t know how to “start from nothing” besides rapping, which he takes the daily struggles and hardships that go on in the hood and glorifies them for his own glory and gain. This dumb sorry ass fool don’t need to be speaking to NO children about upward mobility. Oh and by the way, Tupac live that rough lifestyle and died by his OWN hand and was made out to be a martyr. Anyone could know that death is knocking at their door if they are living a lifestyle that could get them KILLED like Tupac did.
        Rapper who come out like MEEK MILL will only demonize themselves.

      • TheAkademik

        At least you are consistent in treating 2pac with the same vitriol. Who do you think is a rapper that isn’t about ignorance? You also conveniently ignored my point about Malcolm X. I am not saying Meek Mill is a good role model, but when someone is attempting something positive, we should support that attempt and then push them further in that direction rather than pretending like their fate is already sealed.

      • JP Anderson

        Common, Black Thought, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, the Pharcyde, Public Enemy … KRS-ONE especially him, Del the funky Homosapien(Deltron3030), Matisyahu(jewish rapper) and others that you will never here of due to the mainstream masses who only listen to mainstream radio. Malcolm X was a criminal but he was extremely fortunate to become a changed man in prison to become who he needed to be at a time when things were terrible for blacks in the 60’s. You are correct that Meek Mills is not a role model, and therefore SHOULD NOT be speaking to the youth in the hood about upward mobility. That’s what I don’t like. What he’s doing and what most rappers like him are doing isn’t positive but the results of what they are doing can be positive like making money musically but their content isn’t positive. Too too many people in the hood aspire to rap as a means to support themselves financially that’s a big problem. It’s like me or you spending any money we get on lottery tickets just HOPING to win big when the changes of that are even less than it would be if you or I were struck by lightning.

      • TheAkademik

        All of the artists you named are older, which suggests to me that you do not recognize that there is a new generation, who knows nothing about them. You can stand by and say it is a shame or work with them and highlight areas where progress can be made. The artist you say you especially like, KRS One, said “We need unity in the community/ KRS, hip-hop is one/Conscious, gangsters, hustlers.” Secondly, things are still bad for blacks and in many ways advances made during the Civil Rights Movement are being overturned. I agree that there are too many young people aspiring to be rappers, but where I am from, that is a step-up from what you could be doing. For a lot of young people, rap keeps them out of trouble because they are committed to music. Just think about where you are pointing the finger. Maybe we should be thinking about the criminal justice system and how it penalizes races differently. Even celebrity rapper Meek Mill is singled out for being a young black man.

      • JP Anderson

        Nope I’m well aware of this garbage new generation of rappers out. KRS-ONE may have said what he said in your response be he himself was way more positive. I just simply mentioned rappers who weren’t about ignorance. I’m sorry but there’s nothing about a guy who raps about nothing but negativity for no apparent reason and who in this article is holding up a jewelry of a chain(Meek Mills) to aspire to become, nor is he worth supporting. Rappers like him draw the kind of following of people who randomly fights and shoots up nightclubs all the time. If your all about negativity in your music then you would have negative people drawn to you as “support”. Just like when the movie Notorious hit the theaters in 2009, at the premier event in North Carolina there was a shooting at that theater. A lot of Biggie’s records, not all, but a lot of songs weren’t uplifting and that was exactly the kind of followers he had even after all these years since he passed. I do agree that the justice system is bias to a certain extent but that doesn’t mean Meek Mill can go spreading ignorance to the youth when not being a studio gangsta in the booth glorifying what people in the hood go through on a day to day basis. He don’t care about the hood, he only cares about his pockets and getting out the hood.

      • TheAkademik

        You contradict yourself multiple times and you don’t even know your favorite rappers lyrics, so clearly you are talking out your ass.

      • JP Anderson

        And you are talking out of the ass of Meek Mill, that’s why you support him so much, I guess you know all of his lyrics then huh and support his raps and lifestyle too right. He needs mindless fools like you to support him. There’s nothing “Akademik” about you, go to Meek Mill and HOPE that he can teach your stupid ass how to spell. Cowards of the same mind think alike I see.

      • TheAkademik

        No, it is clear that you are basing your opinion off of anecdotal evidence instead of facts. You choose to reinforce stereotypes about black people by pointing out fights and shootings at clubs. Do you know how often these things occur among whites? I actually have my PhD in Sociology and spell Akademik this way intentionally. I recognize when people are using conservative talking points to condemn black youth. It isn’t about Meek Mill. It is about you being a judgmental fool.

      • JP Anderson

        If you wanna hear a conservative talking point, go on to WMD, americanrenaissance, drudgereport websites and you will hear very extreme racist conservative talking points, I’m black you idiot, this never would have happen if that dumb disgrace to the race dumbass didn’t start taking about how he talk to the youth about bettering themselves when he’s a coward and is PART OF THE PROBLEM HIMSELF!!!!!! Do as I say not as I do from him. With the music he put’s out he only stamps himself and reinforces negative stereotypes.

      • TheAkademik

        You can be black, have good intentions, and still reinforce negative stereotypes about black youth ignoramus. I never said Meek Mill is a role model or a revolutionary. All I’m saying is that shitting on him is counterproductive. You are self-righteous and less forceful when acknowledging structural discrimination. You should be more angry at the criminal justice system since it does more damage to blacks than a 20 something year old rapper

      • JP Anderson

        As long as that 20 something year old rapper(Meek Mill) has nothing but stupidity coming out of his mouth, he must and will be called out on it. As far as for structural discrimination goes or the criminal justice system, it cost the U.S. 212 Billion a year and falsely accused go on sue the government and cost local cities millions of dollars. Can’t be too mad at that.

      • JP Anderson

        Malcolm X help led a movement of awareness that unfortunately had to be lead. He was the reaction of all the hate and racism that blacks were going through. I can’t see Meek Mill doing anything remotely close to what Malcolm X has done. Most rappers do say ignorant things in their raps but this Meek Mill seems to do it ALL the time for no reason just to do it. A rebel without a cause/lost cause is what he is.

  • “Out to takes Hov’s spot!” XD
    hahahahahahahahahahahahaha These n*ggas are delusional!!!!!!
    hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  • yesanditcounts

    “Do you want be a king or a goon?” So to be a king I’m going make records about selling dope, f*cking hoes and killing people 24/7, every song is going to reference one or all of these themes. Just other negative n*gga, wanting to sound positive.

    • James

      Preach, brother..

    • shino

      you really cant hate on someone because of the route they choose to make money. honestly everbody is different and he’s reffering to the life that you will have to live to take care of yours. even tho he speaking about the life he used to live doesnt mean he’s still doing it. meek is doing what he know best but also is being a business man. people hate without being constructive. kills me.

      • yesanditcounts

        I don’t feel as if I’m hating, it is what it is. All I’m saying if you are going to glorify that life style every time you touch the mic……..then own it. The truth is getting confused with hate a lot nowadays.

  • The_Good_Life

    If you really from the bottom u not gone hate on dude.

    • Sydewayz Soundz

      Aint a big fan of his music but he seems like a real nigga and he speakin the truth.

      • The_Good_Life

        The part that got me is when he said a rhianna feature cost 200k. His boss had to chip in on the check. Crazy…

    Meek needs to find a good managment team. Rick Ross doesnt know what to do with him. His mixtapes are better than his album, when in fact his album should have been a masterpiece. Kendrick is at the top all by himself. His album has a story behind it not some random beats talking about the same ol shit all these wack ass rappers talk about.

    • rocnation30

      I agree with the meek mills part he does need to find management quick because u can only talk gangsta or tough for so long then you gotta make songs with actually content that makes people listen…I already know meeks story he’s from philly went to jail rick ross signed em now he’s rappin…NOW WHAT??? as for kendrick his first album was good but i don’t think he can top that or even come close to it….which will be his demise…maybe I’m wrong but I’m betting he’s done….

    • DontReplIWontRead

      Kendrick is not at the top. He didn’t get over a mill till control. He’s just like fifty was only hot because of beef. When he can do a mil like Jay drake and em without beef then he good,but as of now ab soul better than him. Kendrick has a wack voice also

      • Guest

        ab soul hahahahaha good one

      • DontReplIWontRead

        Lol Tde all trash hahahhahah so I don’t care

      • TheAkademik
