New Music: Astro – ‘KONY’ (Kendrick Lamar Response)

Astro

The Kendrick Lamar responses keeping coming. Following Joell Ortiz and B.o.B, Astro has recorded his own reply to Kendrick’s “Control” verse. On the Statik Selektah-produced “KONY,” the Brooklyn teen rapper comes at Kendrick for his “king of New York” comment.

“This goes out to the so-called king of New York/ This is the home of legends, Lamar, so watch what you talk/ You comin’ up short thinkin’ you the boss, you must be off it,” raps the “X Factor” alum.

“No matter how much good music you drop, you can’t knock the legacy of B-I-Gs, J-A-Ys, and leaving out the new guys, that ain’t wise/ You ain’t a king, at best you a duke/ Young and poppin’, but Jay old enough to be your pop and movin’ more units than you.”

Despite the public’s reaction, Astro was not that impressed with K-Dot’s verse. “Talkin’ about how you the king of the state/ That’s time wasted/ You kicked harder lines on the Miguel collaborations.”

Do you agree with Astro’s stance? Listen to him go in.

    @JONEZ, Dawg even if K dot was refering to the state of hip hop and all that but once he says ‘He’s the king of NY’ whatever way you look at that its a diss to the whole of NY.

    People don’t realise most beef is fake and sells more. Sean wouldn’t have let him hip on the track if it was a ‘diss’.

    If you’re gonna respond to Kendrick, don’t come with something that wasn’t at least as good as or better than his verse. Astro’s way out of his league, his bars are basic. Age has nothing to do with it, Astro is about 16 or 17. Joey Bad@$$ can rap circles around him, and he’s 18. Even Nas was recording Illmatic at the age of 18, the kid is good, but far from great. He’s not on a big enough level to come at Kendrick.

    Really!? Wow, this is what ppl are mad about? Get a life! Who cares what he said. He can say whatever he wants. If he aint the king then let the king deal wit it other than that shut up!
