This week on COB Radio Crooked I shared his thoughts on Kendrick’s “Control” verse, Joell Ortiz’ response, lyricism in the game right now and him wanting to see a Slaughterhouse and TDE collaboration to happen + more.
C.O.B. Radio host Crooked I tackles Kendrick Lamar’s controversial “Control” verse. After not making the cut onto Big Sean’s upcoming Hall Of Fame LP, the G.O.O.D. Music artist decided to leak the track which features Lamar and Jay Electronica. After aiming his cross hairs at his peers and proclaiming himself the “King of New York,” the world of Hip Hop has been turned upside down and the Slaughterhouse MC decides to weigh in on the situation.
Crooked I points out that not one rapper who was named directly by Lamar has even responded and explains how the TDE rapper’s verse has ignited an appreciation for lyricism in Hip Hop once again. As the first rapper to respond to Kendrick, Crooked talks fellow Slaughterhouse member Joell Ortiz’s lyrical comeback and dispels any rumors that the West Coast doesn’t boast some of the finest lyricists in the rap game. The Long Beach native also says Tupac was the last true “King of the West” and announces he would like to see Slaughterhouse and TDE combine forces for a powerhouse collaboration.
