A video clip has surfaced that shows Kendrick Lamar singing while he is in his car, and he is singing Controlla from Drake’s new album Views. After Kendrick finishes Drizzy’s song he starts in on Rihanna’s Work, which also features Drake.
Many fans are hoping that this clip means that Drizzy will include Lamar on a song in the near future but there is no indication that this is in the works. The video shows that Kendrick is a Drake music fan, in spite of rumors about beef between the two in the past. A remix of Controlla from Views featuring Kendrick Lamar would make fans very happy.
Some rap fans are purists and have some very limiting ideas about what constitutes real hip hop, and To Pimp A Butterfly by Kendrick Lamar has only intensified this debate. This album has it all: musical arrangements that are large and grandiose, rapping that is very technical, themes that can be seen as political, and even disparate influences.
Because of this it has become the poster project for real hip hop for many fans. There has always been some disagreement over whether rap which places a focus on social commentary has more value than rap that is based only on songwriting and musical talent. Recently Complex chose to include Rae Sremmurd who is considered part rap at the number 3 spot on the list, and this led critics to comment about it. Many held up Kendrick Lamar to show what they thought rap should be but Pusha T quickly pushed back by defending the Sremm brothers against purists.
