Lupe Fiasco reacts to Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse with “SLR 2” + drops “#DopeFrancis (American Trap)”

“Yeah n!ggaz gone have to explain they self from here on out when it comes to this “better than everybody” bullshit” – Lupe Fiasco
Yesterday Kendrick Lamar took the net by storm with his verse on Big Sean‘s “Control (HOF)”. The track, which also featured Jay Electronica, featured a scene stealing verse from the West Coast rhyme superstar which in essence called out everyone in hip hop (and some by name) and in essence proclaimed himself to be the king of culture (and the king of New York too). Now K.Dot knows that in the competitive world that is hip hop he was bound to make himself a walking target for every rapper with a microphone, and after Joell Ortiz and B.o.B threw their rebuttals into the arena, Chicago repping lyrical leviathan Lupe Fiasco unleashes “SLR 2”.

Mr Fiasco was very vocal on his twitter about Kendrick’s verse, but don’t get it twisted, this is definitely not beef on Lupe’s part, but Hip Hop is a competition and Mr Food & Liquor decided it was time to remind us that he is definitely one of the best lyricists of our time. Press play below…

Apart from taking time to chin check Mr Lamar, Lupe dropped off something new from his forthcoming Food & Liquor 2 Part 2
in the form of the Mr Inkredible produced “#DopeFrancis (American Trap)” give it a spin below…
