Former Bad Boy Artist Not A Fan Of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘good kid, m.A.A.d. city”
Kendrick Lamar, real name Kendrick Lamar Duckworth (no wonder he dropped the last name), has been given praise by fans and big name talents like Lady Gaga for his debut album, “good kid, m.A.A.d. city”. One hip hopper that isn’t feeling the cuts? Good ol’ Shyne Po!
The former Bad Boy artist let us know how he really feels during an interview with Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg in NYC. He acknowledges the west coast artist’s skills, he just doesn’t like the album.
“I aint starting no trouble. Listen, y’all live in the United States Of America. We don’t live in the United States of Aftermath. Jimmy Iovine (Interscope Records) doesn’t pay me, I can say whatever I want. I’m not talking reckless. I said the young boy got potential and I said he was talented but the album is trash. That’s tough love.”
If you’re confused by the whole y’all live in the United States comment – remember, Shyne was deported to Belize following his prison release back in 2009.
Other talking points include the industry gassing Kendrick up. He said he feels a responsibility to be honest in order to help Lamar grow. He also went into some specifics as to why the album is “trash.”
“Beats is trash, number one, and once your beats are trash, you’re finished because you can’t handle a good flow. I don’t really want to hear what you gotta say.”
Chalk this up as yet another not-so-flattering comment to an Interscope artist. Although mild by comparison, Shyne had a steady beef with 50 Cent and G-Unit while locked up for his part in the infamous Diddy club shooting back in the day.
