The first MC (not mentioned) to respond to Kendrick Lamar’s lyrical attack on Big Sean’s “Control” is none other than Joell Ortiz. The Brooklyn-native fires back at TDE’s own and other listeners who forget why Slaughterhouse’s one of hip-hop’s best when it comes to straight raps.
“This ain’t no different, I’m listening, you the King of New York?/ Little homie you ain’t the king of New York, you the next thing on my fork.
When we met you said, ‘It’s an honor man, the Yaowa can spit’/ Maybe that’s why you left me out of that shit/ Maybe that’s why the Slaugtherhouse ain’t get dissed/ Or maybe I’m not on your radar, you feel you ain’t gotta acknowledge my clique.”
Fittingly, Hot 97’s own Funkmaster Flex premieres our first response.
