Oh man, where do I start.

Okay, so with Control, when Big Sean released that, Kendrick called out everybody. But the one who caught feelings was Drake. Here is what he said after Control.

Quote
He continued: “I know that verse had no malice behind it, because I saw him five days later at the VMAs and it was all love. He didn’t come on there in some wild ‘I’m in New York, fuck everybody, don’t look at me’. It was one of those things, I almost wished he had come in there on that shit, because I kind of lost a little respect for the sentiment of the verse. If it’s ‘really fuck everybody’ then it needs to be ‘fuck everybody’. It can’t be halfway for the sake of the people.”

“Are you listening to “Control” now? At this point? I can’t wait to see what Kendrick does because now it’s time to show and prove consistency. It’s been, like, one album. Consistency is make more than one album. I look forward to seeing what he does. He’s super fucking talented. When it comes to competition, I’m more worried about consistency, about bodies of work. I’m talking about hit records, that’s Kanye West. He’s always going to be the guy who’s trying to out-think and outdo. That’s my guy that I aspire to surpass..”

Then he did a track Language which was seen as a diss to Kendrick, followed by Sh!t which was seen as a diss to Kendrick.

From Language:
Quote
I don't know why they been lyin'
But your shit is not that inspirin'
Bank account statements just look like
I'm ready for early retirement
Fuck any nigga that's talking that shit just to get a reaction
Fuck going platinum!
I looked at my wrist and it's already platinum
I am the kid with the motor mouth
I am the one you should worry 'bout
I don't know who you're referring to
Who is this nigga you heard about?
Someone just talking that bullshit
Man, someone just gave you the run-around
Which response to Control

This was printed in GQ when GQ gave K Dot the artist of the year in 2013:
Quote
After Drake’s VMA performance of "Hold On, We’re Going Home," Kendrick made his way back to the greenroom, crooning the hook: I got my eyes on you.... He caught mine and smiled. "You watch," he joked, "I’m going to be singing by my fifth album!"
I asked if this meant things were cool between him and Drake. He paused. "Pretty cool." Shrugs. "And I mean, I would be okay if we weren’t."
A month later, it became apparent that things between Kendrick and Drake were definitely not cool. After Drake’s new album dropped, he gave a pair of interviews in which he sounded wounded by the "Control" thing: "You can’t just say that and then see me and be like, ’Yeah, man, what’s up?’—pretending like nothing ever happened." Seemingly in response, during the BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher a few weeks later, Kendrick freestyled: Nothing been the same since they dropped "Control" / and tucked a sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes.
I got Kendrick on the phone after the BET taping, and he admitted to being surprised by Drizzy’s public lash-out—"Control" named names, sure, but at its core it was a backhanded tribute to the peers Kendrick actually gives a shit about. Most of them took it in that spirit. Not Drake. "Yeah, I guess he took it as a dis," Kendrick said, downplaying talk of a beef. But he was also clear that he doesn’t look up to Drake, doesn’t see him as any kind of creative influence. When I asked if Drake was a mentor or a role model, he replied quickly, "No—peer. If anything. We all peers."
The Drake dropped Sh!t with Future

From Sh!t:
Quote
Took niggas out the hood like I'm from there
So you know it's all good when I come there
I hear you talk about your city like you run that
And I brought my tour to your city, you my son there nigga
And reminds K Dot that K Dot was the opening act when Drake had his tour come to LA.

A year later K Dot finally responded with:
Quote
I tell 'em all to hail King Kendrick, resurrectin' my vengeance
Been dissectin' your motormouth, 'til I break down the engine
This ain't no warnin' shot, this a relevant henchman
See my opponent, then *smooch* cease your existence
Endin' our friendship, baby, I'd rather die alone
Your diaphragm is dietary, what you eatin' on?
Capture your audience with these words, boy
The holy Chapel, the tabernacle, the book of Matthew
And Jesus starin' at you, take your turn, boy
See? It's gon' take a whole lot of y'all to kill me
See? It's gon' take a whole tribe of y'all to kill me, I never die
My pedigree apparently only to idolize
Ahead of me is only my future and idle time
Longevity, I gotta get used to makin' you mine
You tellin' me I only get used to livin' if fine
You can never live in my shoes, permanently paid from God

hahaha.

As long as they don't mention each others name, no point speculating really.
 If the music is good, we will jam to it.

When they are ready, they will quit with the subliminal and go after each other

True. Maybe why no one has even cared on this board until now is because Kendrick dropped the most direct line:

Quote
Ho, Jay Z Hall of Fame, sit yo' punk-ass down!
(Sit yo' punk-ass down!)
So that means you ain't bigger than rapping (What else?)
So that means no more playin' the back scenes (What else?)
My spot is solidified if you ask me (What else?)
My name is identified as "That King"
I'll let y'all worry about a list, I'm on some other shit
A difference between accomplishments and astonishments

But still said no names.

Now we are just being a hater.

Of today's generation, I'd put K Dot as the best rapper. By today's generation, I mean those rappers who's hits have come in the 2010's. Like Game, TI, Lil' Wayne, their peaks were 2000's, so that's the last generation. Suga Free was mostly 90's, so he's two generations back. To me, the current generation are rappers like Drake, Joey Bada$$, Wale, Big Sean, and others who are generally about 30 years old right now who've been the artist of this generation. When K Dot calls himself Greatest Rapper Alive, he's putting himself with his peers. He's already said, Jay, Nas, Game, all them are older and they are his elders. But this current generation, those are his peers and he's coming to kill all them.

I'm gonna honestly say I don't feel that "Humble" joint like that and I hope it's not an album cut

it's not bad by any means but something about it comes off as underwhelming to me and just because it's Kendrick people are freaking out

I agree with that. I posted on Facebook, not sure if I like this track. Maybe my least favorite K Dot track, right after one of my favorites in the Heart pt. 4. (Even if it wasn't a diss, that track goes HARD and I love that K Dot is finally embracing his place in hip-hop at this moment.) But I ain't worried about Humble being on the album, I though i was a weak first single and then TPAB was easily the best album of this last decade, so I'm not worried. As far as my least favorite tracks, ironically his lead singles to all his commercial albums are my top 3. Swimming Pools, i, and Humble are 3,2,1 in that order. Man, I hate to hear what his next first album single will sound like, because I can't picture him doing a song worse that Humble. And Humble actually is a decent track, for other artist.

agreed, even when "I" dropped I wasn't big on that joint either but then the live version on the album I actually liked and I felt it fit well into context with the storyline of the album
