During a number of since-deleted tweets, Fiasco questioned Lamar’s abilities as a lyricist – making a connection between him and the ’1-800-27308255’ artist.
I’ll put it to you like this. K. Dot is not a top tier lyricist to me and my standards when it comes to punchlines and bars,” Fiasco posted, pointed-out by Consequence of Sound. “His overall lyrics are good, his stories phenomenal, but punchline entendre lyrically I don’t see it.”
Fiasco elaborated when a Lamar fan weighed in on the issue, who claimed that the track ‘Look Out For Detox’ “destroys” his tracks.
“I’ve never been destroyed,” Fiasco said. “Also the only issue that the world thinks I have with K. Dot and I actually do is that I think his ‘Control’ verse was wack and super overhyped to be a verse claiming you are the best rapper. It was very weird. I was told it was just bait, but still.”
Meanwhile, Kendrick Lamar has recently been announced as producer for the upcoming Black Panther soundtrack, and released the SZA-featuring ‘All The Stars’.
Elsewhere, Lamar also unveiled the sensual video for ‘LOVE’. The Zacari featuring track is the fifth song from ‘DAMN.’ to receive an accompanying video, after the release of ‘ELEMENT.’, ‘LOYALTY.’, ‘DNA.’, and ‘HUMBLE.’
Last year, Lupe Fiasco reviewed his own album, giving the release 7/10 in what the rapper says is “the only review that matters.”
