Kendrick Lamar Responds to Shyne’s Criticism of “good kid, m.A.A.d city”

After using the now ever-popular formula of taking a shot at a rapper who’s at the top of his game in order to garner attention, Shyne’s public critique of Kendrick Lamar’s debut album good kid, m.A.A.d city has now received a (level-headed) response from the Cali rapper. With Shyne calling Lamar’s album “trash,” the likes of ScHoolboy Q, The Game and Nipsey Hussle have all leapt to the defense of the artist whose LP is set to come in at #2 next week with over 200k units sold. Kendrick now adds his two pence worth to the mix, simply stating:

“It’s really no response [to him]. I’m not a sensitive guy, so that’s his opinion. Can’t stop what the world thinks, so yeah, that’s him.”

good kid, m.A.A.d city is available now on iTunes.

    What more could he say? He knows that he's talented and that his album is classic material...Shyne isn't relevant and the only way the world will pay attention to him is if he says something so provocative that people will have take a quick glance his way if only to tell him to STFU. When you're desperate, bad attention is better than none at all I suppose. "Shyne Po"...i guess that tells you where his head is at...think about that for a sec ;-)

    I thought Hypetrak was supposed to be objective?

  • jumpxman

    how is this not objective. It offers no personal opinion on the matter. Dunce

    "using the now ever-popular formula of taking a shot at a rapper who’s at the top of his game in order to garner attention," Sounds like a subjective comment to me. Dunce.

    We really like Kendrick's music out here on the west and fully suport him & TDE, but I wouldn't call his album a classic? I would say a 7/10 and that's pushing it. Even at the top of Shyne's career he was just doo-doo!
