Kendrick Lamar Wins Big At 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards
Star also performs another controversial rap! See the full winners list here...
Kendrick Lamar's vibe remained intact during Tuesday's (October 15) televisedDrake came in a close second, and though the A$AP Rocky's F***in' Problems, also let rip at those artists who had criticised his controversial verse on Big Sean's Control at the bash - targeting Drake in particular.
Lamar let it be known that all of the Toronto rapper's masterfully dismissive comments regarding his rap didn't kill his vibe, spitting:
"If you need me just call on me/ Hold up, wait a minute/ Your career ain't s**t unless you got some Kendrick in it," he rapped in a clever retort to Drake's own "Drake featuring Drake" line, before signing off with the declarative new title, "King Kendrick."
Judging by the onslaught of comments and the trending topic #KendricksVerse, Aftermath's newest champ definitely claimed the lyrical throne for the evening.
