Kendrick Lamar Just Murdered You On Your Own Shit: The Complete CollectionPosted by Nathan S. on 12/24/12 | Filed under Top Stories, Best Of, Kendrick Lamar
Weekend Edition: RefinedHype’s most popular pieces of the week, running from Saturday to Monday morning.
At this point any rapper who invites Kendrick Lamar onto their track is making a deal with the hip-hop devil: Kendrick will murder them on their own shit, but the track will get more attention than it would have without the TDE leader.
I was reminded of Kendrick’s remarkable streak of First 48ing any and every emcee when listening to Meek Mill’s new “Dreamchasers 2” album, and I suddenly felt inspired enough to put together a definitive collection. As always, I’m gonna RefinedHype Nation’s help. The only qualification is that it has to be a track where the headlining emcee is more famous, or at least as famous, as Kendrick.
UPDATE: I’m disqualifying any Kendrick verse on a fellow TDE member’s track. It just doesn’t feel right to say he killed a family member…we’ll just call it “friendly fire”.
Got it? Let’s go. I’ve included a few major examples, hit me with others in the comments and I’ll update.
