Kendrick Lamar Responds to Lupe Fiasco's Critiques

K.Dot brushes off comments from Chicago MC and Troy Ave.

Published June 10, 2014

About a week ago, Lupe Fiasco gave an unfavorable critique of Kendrick Lamar's lyrical skill set and the Compton rapper is now responding.  Seattle radio station Kube 93 FM checked in with Lamar and he wasn't the least bit bothered by Fiasco's comments.

"Everybody [is] entitled to their own opinion, you feel me? I just continue to do what I do," he told radio personality Nessa. "Everybody feels they own aspects of it and how they look at different artists, but I just continue to do what I do."

His response to Troy Ave wasn't as politically correct as the words reserved for Fiasco. The New York spitter once called K.Dot a "weirdo rapper," yet he's not even on the TDE star's radar. "I never met him, I never really focused on his music either," he said.

Lamar also confirmed that he is "for sure" working on a new LP before giving a shoutout to the unknown mastermind behind The United State of A.L.A.R.M., a fake album title and story that spread online last month. 

Another topic he touched on was the modestly-priced four-bedroom home he recently purchased. The property isn't for him to live in, it was just another investment. "I really like to buy property, whether it's apartments, whether it's buildings, whether it's houses," the 26-year-old pointed out. "I like to stay in L.A., I still live in L.A…small little apartment condos in L.A., but I like to invest my money in different things rather than just buying things for the moment, something that can last me a lifetime."

Good business investments will keep Lamar in the millionaire club in which he currently belongs. His net worth is at $9 million and counting.
