Hours after Lamar's "King of New York" verse off Big Sean's "Control" hit the 'Net, Twitter reactions flooded social media, until Joell Ortiz was the first to step forward with a rap response. In comparison, Lupe is far less ferocious than Ortiz, and doesn't name the TDE rapper directly. "I ain't competition, I don't move s---/The only opposition is this new s---," he rhymes.
Later in the record he takes aim at Lamar's looks and perceived arrogance. "He's so crazy, look at the little baby/ N---- you ain't Nas, n---- you ain't Jay Z, you will respect me, you will reject me/But I've done so much, no matter how far you go, you will reflect me."
"SLR 2" is both a lyrical and sonic deviation from some of Lupe's previous work, but even that wasn't enough to garner a reaction from Lamar. The Compton native has yet to speak on any of the rebuttals to his controversial verse.
