Kendrick Lamar Disses Drake in His BET Cypher

There had been rumors swirling around the internet but now we have confirmation. During Kendrick Lamar‘s BET Awards 2013 Cypher, the Compton rapper took shots at Drake, calling him a “sensitive rapper… in pajama clothes” and “a fake.” The BET show doesn’t air until October 15, but the cyphers are recorded in advance, with this 15 second clip from the TDE’s effort somehow leaking.

All this stems from Kendrick’s “Control” verse, which seemed to be based on a healthy sense of competition and love for the art of hip-hop, so while it’s certainly interesting to hear Lamar taking direct shots at Drake’s, hopefully the rest of his verse will come with something a little more impressive, and lyrical, than “pajama clothes.”
