Will be interesting to see which NYC/East Coast artist steps up to the plate. That king of NY/juggle both coast line was fighting words back in the golden ages, but I'm not sure these new school cats have battling in them. Big Sean lets Kendrick sh*t on him on his own track and then Joey Badass seems more ready to ask for an autograph instead of doing battle.
My respect for Kendrick just went up even more. Wake these dudes up. Bring out the competition and artistry in them. Straight hip hop sh*t.
So who do you think could slay kendrick right now in your opinion rt?
Mainstream guys? Newer guys? Battle stuff? Hard to say cuz cats don't battle anymore.
Maybe Krit (judging by Krit murdering Kendrick on "1 Train").
Maybe Lupe (who seems to have his feelings hurt at the moment).
Pusha if he took it serious enough. He isn't new school but I included him since he was called out.
Wouldn't feel confident about any of them because they don't seem hungry or motivated like Kendrick is at the moment. The bar has been set so low through the years that it's hard to even get a feel for how a rapper would approach a battle. If Drake wasn't suckered into going at Common, then I doubt he has it in him to really go at someone aside from a few slick bars.
If we include cats that aren't considered new school then yeah, someone like Elzhi would punish Kendrick if he was called out.
