FRED DA GODSON. #BRONXSTANDUP!!!!
Now this is Fredericko. This is TBM, Talkin Bout Money. This is Fred DA MOTHERFUCKING GODSON. It don't get no better. Fred, another rapper left off Kendrick Lamar's long list of possible challengers, posted his response just a little while ago. We don't even want to write about what he said, but you all need to be broken down.
With that DON flow, mixed with that voice that just screams, "oh this New York nigga". "Sonny lost a finger then this little niggas ears can go", mixed with seriousness and comedy clearly taking shots at the way the nigga Kendrick Lamar was born like. He constantly refers back to what he is really living, reminding Mr. Lamar prior to any rebuttal he must remember Fred DA GODSON "TBM willing to ride/this is verbal murder I know Im killin your vibe". For outsiders who don't know what TBM is, just ask us how many people FRED DA GODSON brought through a show at Webster Hall in NYC back in June. "You got Snoop/We got jay/We got Nas/You got Dre/But you the king of everything?". is expressing his feelings as any hip hop fan from the 90's would. When you were from Queens you would name Nas and Mobb Deep, if you were from BK you screaming Biggie and Jay, Da Bronx Big Pun and Lord Tariq, and so on and so on. That part of the song is the familiar tit for tat New Yorkers thrive on and are not afraid to argue.
This is hip hop. Start a topic and don't stop. New York is known to keep things going for a long time, ask Reggie Miller, but its all love. Well, not for FRED DA GODSON. Fred will respond back to anything Kendrick has to say and on this one, Kendrick better come heavy or not at all. #TBM is kind of deep, s/o to Mally Stackz and I be seeing his videos.
Its not over yet, 3 more boroughs still got to respond, or did Kendrick think Chinatown was the border for NY. Don't let Santos fool you.
Well, give credit where credit is due. #BrooklynStandup.
We said it before, New Yorkers take things to heart if you mention this city. SlaughterHouse EMCEE, Joell Ortiz, protected this city with the first swing back. I am thinking it would have been out hours ago, but someone in his camp said, "at least mix it down first".
Unsigned rappers were given 17 hours to get to their homemade production studio and lay down the hardest 16/32/64's in their life if they were from New York. Now, one of the most prolific rhymesmiths of the post-G-Unit era, the era where Hip Hop was last respected as talented across the board, has responded. To come after him, your bars have to be even more solid, your subject matter more unique, your track selection more impressive, with a deeper root into the history of rap.
Deep down inside, we all want beef in Hip Hop. We love the fact Joell Ortiz called Kendrick Lamar "the next thing on my fork". He added, "maybe Im not on your radar/you feel you aint gotta acknowledge my clique" clearly letting Kendrick Lamar know you don't mention this city and totally ignore the most respected group in the streets, let alone rap niggaz from Brooklyn that make take offense to being ignored.
"You rich rappers cant respond with all the dollars you get/Gangsta rappers cant retaliate with hollows and clips/and you fashion rappers wear the kind of jeans you hardly can zip". Lets dig through this bar. The first one is stating the obvious that guys like Jay Z, Diddy, and maybe 50 Cent have amassed so much money, to respond would be frowned upon by TODAYS casual fan. The next one he clearly is speaking of himself and probably a few others like an Uncle Murda, Papoose, Fabolous, and a few more that are just disrespectful when slighted. The last bar he is taking shots at the tight jean wearing rappers of today. Is there something wrong with wearing too tight jeans? Not our preferred method of dress, but to each its own.
Joell Ortiz responded first and fierce and is worthy of a well thought out article by someone from the same era. We just hope that the beef continues so we can keep talking about #REALHIPHOP.
If there is news out there believe the scoop will be here.
