Kendrick Lamar and Drake were the story at the 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards, which aired Tuesday night, and not only because they won five awards each.
In a two-minute verse, part of a full-length Top Dawg Entertainment Crew freestyle rap "cypher" recorded for the show, the former asserted his dominance again.
Referencing his verse on Big Sean's "Control" and taking what may felt was another shot at Drake, Lamar declared himself "King Kendrick" amongst the rest:
"Nothing's been the same since they dropped 'Control' / And tucked a sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes," the L.A. rapper began last night.
"Your s--t never penetrates / Pin the tail on the donkey, boy you been a fake," he went on. "I'm the master that masturbated on your favorite emcee."
As the crowd thunderously roared with each fiery line, Lamar boasted, "Hold up, wait a minute / Your career ain't s--t unless you got some Kendrick in it."
