A tale of two kings..

The response to Kendrick Llamar's latest verse on Big Sean's "Control" has left the hip hop community in arms. Kendrick called out several high profile rappers/artists (Including Big Sean) and usually these sort of ego defined lyrics tend to start a verbal battle royale here's the chorus that started it all

"I'm usually homeboys with the same n----- I'm rhymin' with/But this is hip-hop and them n----- should know what time it is/And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Wale/Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake/Big Sean, Jay Electron', Tyler, Mac Miller/I got love for you all but I'm tryna murder you n-----."

He continues on to call himself the King of New York and both coasts...now considering he called out Big Sean on his own track - I gotta think this is more for fun than anything, and Diddy shot off a picture on his instagram of him and Jay-Z that pretty much sums up how two of the most powerful artists feel about the whole situation.

Will it errupt into a full-scale hip-hop throwdown? Probably not - at least...I hope not...
