Whether mentioned or not, every major rapper in the game seemed to have something to say about Kendrick Lamar’s monster diss to all other emcees on Big Sean’s “Control (HOF).” Now, breakout Harlem emcees A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg have responded to Kendrick’s verse as well and gave two very different opinions about their rival’s verse.
During a recent interview with GQ, Ferg responded to Kendrick’s “king of New York” mention by asking, “What’s a king to a lord?”
But yesterday when A$AP Mob stopped by Hot 97’s The Funkmaster Flex Show and showed off their skills with a freestyle cypher, Ferg decided to take the opportunity to diss Kendrick for claiming he’s the king of their hometown and the West Coast.
“In a dark room in Harlem, thinkin bout shots / And how it barely grazed me and it coulda hit Rock / And a couple of other n—– but they dont roll wit my flock / Makaveli from Harlem, how u wanna be Pac?” rhymed Ferg.
Ferg then took it a step further and fired off heavier shots at both Kendrick and his TDE comrade SchoolBoy Q.
“Wanna be a jiggy nigga from the East Coast, right? The Beast Coast, right? / I know u feelin the feet close right? / A heat to ya face and ya teeth all tight / Flex got beats? we gon beef all night / ScHoolboy you betta school ya boy, hit you wit the ruler boy / I’m the new 50 Cent, I will f—– Ja Rule ya, boy / Sh-sh-sh-shabba Ranks, before I hit you with the toola boy / Hit ‘em wit the chopsticks, I will f—– Thai food ya boy / I don’t sell rocks, nigga I smoke ‘em / Fuck around on crack and that’s no jokin’ / The weed had me laced, I started West Coastin’ / The shit was too potent, now im ready to poke somethin / Rock, wanna know somethin?, Sherane got good brain / a couple Harlem nikkas had that b—- up in a chicken wang / you Top Dawg? I heard you in the lick of things a hollywood bully where you…” rapped Ferg.
Although Ferg, who wasn’t even mentioned by Kendrick, seemed to take offense to Kendrick’s verse, Rocky had a much calmer opinion on the matter. Check out his response to Kendrick’s verse after the cut. – nicholas robinson
