Kendrick Lamar Tells Hip Hop to "Sit Down, Be Humble"

Just when you thought Kendrick Lamar was done making news this week, he went all biblical on the whole game of Hip Hop. Today Humble arrived in video form before hitting iTunes and Spotify, which made its release all the more surprising. With a high powered assist from Mike Will on the beat, Kendrick didn't mince any words on his verses. He basically told Hip Hop, "sit down, be humble, I got this game on lock." Switching between a church setting to an urban block and finishing with an ironic last supper re-enactment, there was plenty of symbolism in the mix.

Some say this was even more shade being thrown directly at Big Sean, but I don't buy it. The long story of their back and forth is so indirect that it's more click bait than factual at this point. My favorite lines centered around that "show me somethin' natural like ass with some stretchmarks" line. Hat tip to K Dot for encouraging women to embrace what God gave them rather than being something they're not. At this point, I'd say it's safe to say Kendrick is going to do whatever it takes to steal the spotlight from any and every rapper trying to stand in his way...#Humble
