Kendrick Lamar Attacks Rap Peers' Out Of 'Control' Luxurious Lifestyles

Kendrick Lamar has not been in the most subtle of moods of late. He's started to find the trappings of fame and fortune irritating or so his lyrics would suggest.

Lamar's rant features of Big Sean's upcoming Hall of Fame album. The 7 minute long track, in which Lamar raps, has not been released owing to sample-clearance issues. This track, 'Control', is highly critical of the attributes of rap culture, including the frivolous lifestyles of other celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan.

Lamar has not held back, attacking his friends on their superficial interests, including such fellow rappers as Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale, Push T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Tyler, Mac Miller and even his collaborators Big Sean and Jay Electronica.

Their responses have been, rather bizarrely, supportive. Push T, via Twitter, has said "I hear you loud and clear", presumably addressing Lamar. Although this seems to be an open statement, it does appear to be an understanding response to Lamar's lyrics.

In particular one verse has caused controversy which goes as follows:

"Mollies'll prolly turn these n****s to f***in' Lindsay Lohan 
A bunch of rich ass white girls lookin' for parties
Playin with Barbies, wreck the Porsche before you give 'em the car key."

"Molly" refers to MDMA or Ecstasy - in case, like this writer, you were naive enough not to have a clue what it meant. Whilst the luxurious lifestyle maintained by such rappers has turned them into "a bunch of rich ass white girls" just like Lindsay Lohan. Not only are they spending their money on luxuries but they are taking these items for granted. 

Big Sean's Hall of Fame is out in stores on August 27th.
