It’s not unusual for some of the biggest names in hip-hop to move up and down Twitter’s list of trending topics on any given day, but today Twitter was buzzing about Compton-born Kendrick Lamar, who last night tweeted a link to Big Sean’s new track, “Control.” In his guest verse on the track, Lamar calls out the competition by name, telling J Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Wale, Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Jay Electronica, Tyler the Creator and Mac Miller, “I’m tryna murder you n****s.”
Of course, the only thing more insulting than to be called out in a diss track is to be left out of a diss track entirely. After the initial round of buzz over Lamar’s choices, Twitter decided to step back and compile a list of #RappersKendrickDidntMention and who are presumably safe from his murder spree.
