Check out the video above as Shyne defends himself for calling Kendrick Lamar's new album "good kid m.A.A.d city" trash on Twitter. Shyne later got into a war of words on Twitter with female MC The Game. The two got into it after The Game went at Shyne for his comments on Kendrick. Shyne also got into it with Schoolboy Q when he stood up for his friend Kendrick.
Yoooo! Kendrick Lamar is talented with a lot of potential but his album is traaaaash!— Shyne Po (@OriginalShyne) October 24, 2012
When did honest become hating?I expected doggy style or the chronic. I got a product that was trash— Shyne Po (@OriginalShyne) October 24, 2012
I'm inspired by other people's greatness, it makes me work harder . I looked forward to hearing an instant classik from good kid. Trash!— Shyne Po (@OriginalShyne) October 24, 2012
I gotta agree with Shyne on this. I don't get all the hype around Kendrick Lamar. I've listed to good kid m.A.A.d city, and it is mediocre at best. Shyne is right, just cause he worked with Dre, that doesn't make his album an instant classic. It definitely isn't Doggystyle or The Chronic, not even close.
Why do people always deem in necessary to appoint unproven people "the next big thing"? Kendrick is the rap version of RGIII. Sure RGIII has tons of potential, but ESPN sweats his nuts like he's the best player in the NFL. He's turned into ESPN's new Tebow for this season. ESPN wants to talk about RGIII's MVP chances? Are you fucking kidding? His team list to the Giants, has a losing record and is in LAST PLACE!
The thing is we live in such a fantasy football driven society, winning games has lost its luster. ESPN would rather talk about RGIII scrambling than two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning winning another game in the clutch. Last year people sweated Cam Newton's nuts for all the yards he threw for while getting blown out in losses. This year, he blows. So lets be easy on RGIII as the "next big thing" talk until he actually becomes "the next big thing". Because next year, he could be right where Cam Newton is now.
