Aftermath of KENDRICK LAMAR(KING OF NEW YORK) Declaration

Adetayo Tolulope@swaggertols

Kendrick Lamar also known as K.dot is no doubt taking control of the hip-hop game.

The 26-year-old rapper’s verse on Big Sean’s single “Control,” which was released Tuesday, reminded fellow lyricists what the true nature of hip-hop is … competition.

Lamar’s lyrics, which begin at approximately three minutes into the song, include: “I’m usually homeboys with the same n—-s I’m rhyming with/ But this is hip-hop and them n—-s 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—-s/ Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you n—-s/ They don’t wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you n—-s/ What is competition?”

His words sparked quite a reaction in the Twitterverse with fans and rappers alike stating their opinion.

“I hear u loud and clear my n—- … @kendricklamar,” rapper Pusha T tweeted shortly after the song’s release.

Even emcees who weren’t called out by Lamar had something to say.

“Any studios open yet?” Brooklyn-born rapper Fabolous tweeted shortly after 7 a.m. Tuesday.

Kendrick Lamar’s verses had Twitter blazing, especially when the Compton, Calif. rapper boasted about being the King of New York, the birthplace of hip-hop.

Missy Elliot tweeted a thank you to Lamar for reminding rap artists “2 be Lyrical and have substance again.”

But what about the fact that the Compton, Calif. native also called himself the “King of New York” in the rap when he said: “I’m Makaveli’s offspring I’m the King of New York/ King of the coast/ One hand I juggle them both.”

“A Cali n—- just said he’s the King of NY & u n—-s so f—ing worried about your relationships, y’all make me sick,” New Jersey rapper Joe Budden wrote. “Where’s all NY!???!”

Lupe Fiasco wasn’t dazzled by Lamar’s words either and folded in a lyrical response in his tweet from his private account: “Y’all know y’all easily impressed. Bar so low you need a shovel to get at it.”

Despite any backlash the “Poetic Justice” rapper received, his fans certainly had his back.

“Kendrick aint diss nobody he was basically saying Everything is a competition ain’t no friends when you tryna get to the top,” one fan wrote.

Another tweeted: “Kendrick just reminded ya’ll that this is Hip Hop. A competition of words. No rap beef … just lyrical challenge. As it should be.”

Another Fan(Prince Bade Olagbegi) wrote: ”My dad would say every Prince has it behind his mind to be king but only one person can be crowned..Kendrick Lamar Crowned himself.#BOSS!

But Diddy arguably said it best when he simply tweeted: “KENDRICK!!!!! Ohhhh Sh********t”

Kendrick spits:
I’m in a destruction mode if the gold exists.
I’m important like the pope, I’m a muslim on pork
I’m Makaveli’s offspring, I’m the king of New York
King of the Coast, one hand, I juggle them both
The juggernaut’s all in your jugular, you take me for jokes
Live in the basement, church pews and funeral faces
Cartier bracelets for my women friends I’m in Vegas
Who the fuck y’all thought it’s supposed to be?
If Phil Jackson came back, still no coachin’ me
I’m uncoachable, I’m unsociable. Fuck y’all clubs, fuck y’all pictures
Your Instagram can gobble these nuts
See his diss of other rappers and their reaction after the cut…

Kendrick also called out a few rappers…see the verse below..

I heard the barbershops be in great debates all the time
Bout who’s the best MC? Kendrick, Jigga and Nas
Eminem, Andre 3000, the rest of y’all
New niggas just new niggas, don’t get involved
And I ain’t rockin no more designer shit
White T’s and Nike Cortez, this is red Corvettes anonymous
I’m usually homeboys with the same niggas I’m rhymin’ wit
But this is hip hop and them niggas should know what time it is
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale
Pusha T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake
Big Sean, Jay Electron’, Tyler, Mac Miller
I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you niggas
Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas
They dont wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you niggas
What is competition? I’m tryna raise the bar high
Who tryna jump and get it? You better off tryna skydive

OJB Ends Donation Campaign

Here is the official statement from OJB regarding his kidney transplant donation campaign. He spoke at press briefing on Monday, thanking Nigerians for coming to his aid and asked that further donations for his kidney transplant stop as the money needed, N16 million, is complete.

“Appreciate all those who stood by me one way or the other. I’m sincerely grateful and feel blessed that people could go miles just to make me well again. Now that I have gotten all the money needed for my medical bill, I want to officially put a stop to all forms of appeal or request in bid to save OJB. I want Nigerians to know that I have gotten the N16million needed for my treatment. Therefore, no donation should again be made to any source in respect of the said case. I will be going for my operation by mid August”

With that statement we can all smile and give thanks to all those who have donated. All we can do now for OJB is pray for a safe and no-complicated surgery process.

WIZKID IS STILL SIGNED TO E.M.E – Banky W DECLARES

While partying with 2face in Dubai, Banky W in an exclusive interview had this to say:
“It’s all bad belle people, they think there may be bad news and when you don’t give them that news they start to create it because bad news sells more than good news.

First of all (go down low…lol), there was no twitter fight, people go online and use photoshop to create my profile and then they go and create Wizkid’s profile and say he said this and that – even when it never happened. What happened is that we have been working on Wizzy’s project to make it work internationally and when you are getting to that level, things change.

He has his own idea of what he wants to do and we are in 100% support of that and these were the things we dreamed of back in 2009 when I signed him….Wizkid is still signed to the E.M.E!!!

On Wizkid’s starboy entertainment, he said “well you know that is something else he wants to do, he wants to start his record label just like I started mine then and see where I am today. You have a lot of people fabricating stuff and trying to make it feel like there is a battle and you know we don’t believe in that…we are all mature and grown up people…he is absolutely and still part of the family…”

When asked “how does it work for him to have star boy entertainment and still be part of E.M.E”
he said, “I would give you a fantastic example, Kanye West has GOOD MUSIC and he is still with Rock Nation, ROCKAFELLA…I rest my case”

Nigerian-born rapper Wale says Wizkid will feature on his forthcoming album ‘The Gifted’ scheduled for release on June 25, 2013.

The Maybach Music Group rapper revealed this a few weeks ago on Twitter while dropping some hints on how his new album would sound.

Best believe I got some new music for that green white green on my new album.. Ask @wizkidayo‘, @Wale wrote.

A few weeks before that Wale had expressed Wizzy as his favourite African artiste.

The pair must have spent quite some time in the studio last year; Wizkid also disclosed in an interview with OK! Magazine that he had enlisted Wale on his upcoming mixtape.

Nollywood Actress: Foluke Daramola Finally Re-marries

Daramola-and-SalakoContrary to the expectations of her critics, controversial actress, Foluke Daramola is set to wed her lover and business associate, Olukayode Salako, in a traditional ceremony that is scheduled to take place in Lagos on Friday, February 15, 2013 (today).

The couple may have decided to have a low-key wedding, which will be attended by only close friends and relations, in order to avoid getting entangled in another web of negative reactions from their critics and other members of the public.

In a text message, which she  sent to Art & Life on Wednesday, Daramola said, “My hearthrob, Olukayode Ezekiel Salako, would like to engage me, Foluke Omolola Daramola,  amongst a few family members and friends, in a traditional wedding engagement on the February 15, which coincides with my birthday,  at 2, Gbeleyi Avenue, by Femifoam Oyemekun College Road, Ifako-Ijaiye.Time:12 noon. Please, no African time and pray for us ahead. Your presence will gladden our ‘heart’, God bless u.”

Daramola was married before with two children. Until now, her whirlwind romance with Salako, a businessman, politician and civil rights activist, had been the subject of much debate within the social circles of Lagos.

In a previous interview with the The PUNCH, the actress had said that marriage was not on her agenda. She had expressed her desire to proceed on further studies abroad.

Apart from that, Daramola and the groom-to-be had planned to start a non-governmental organisation, known as Change Agents, that would work towards promoting patriotism among young Nigerians.

At the moment, it appears that marriage is uppermost in their minds. Perhaps, tomorrow’s  wedding is aimed at finally shutting up their critics and others who have accused the actress of breaking Salako’s marriage of many years.
