Audio: Kendrick Lamar's "Control" Rap

[Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar]
Tell Flex to drop a bomb on this shit
So many bombs, ring the alarm like Vietnam in this shit
So many bombs, make Farrakhan think Saddam in this bitch
One at a time, I line 'em up and bomb on they mom while she watchin' the kids
I'm in a destruction mode if the gold exists
I'm important like the pope, I'm a muslim on pork
I'm Makaveli's offspring, I'm the king of New York
King of the Coast, one hand, I juggle them both
The juggernaut's all in your jugular, you take me for jokes
Live in the basement, church pews and funeral faces
Cartier bracelets for my women friends I'm in Vegas
Who the fuck y'all thought it's supposed to be?
If Phil Jackson came back, still no coachin' me
I'm uncoachable, I'm unsociable
Fuck y'all clubs, fuck y'all pictures, your Instagram can gobble these nuts
Gobble dick up 'til you hiccup, my big homie Kurupt
This the same flow that put the rap game on a crutch
I've seen niggas transform like villain Decepticons
Mollies'll prolly turn these niggas to fuckin' Lindsay Lohan
A bunch of rich ass white girls lookin' for parties
Playin with Barbies, wreck the Porsche before you give 'em the car key
Judge me 'til the monarchy, blessings to Paul McCartney
You called me a black Beatle, I'm either that or a Marley
(I don't smoke crack motherfucker I sell it)
I'm dressed in all black, this is not for the fan of Elvis
I'm aimin' straight for your pelvis, you can't stomach me
You plan on stumpin' me? Bitch I've been jumped before you put a gun on me
Bitch I put one on yours, I'm Sean Connery
James Bonding with none of you niggas, climbing 100 mil in front of me
And I'm gonna get it even if you're in the way
And if you're in it, better run for Pete's sake
I heard the barbershops be in great debates all the time
Bout who's the best MC? Kendrick, Jigga and Nas
Eminem, Andre 3000, the rest of y'all
New niggas just new niggas, don't get involved
And I ain't rockin no more designer shit
White T's and Nike Cortez, this is red Corvettes anonymous
I'm usually homeboys with the same niggas I'm rhymin' wit
But this is hip hop and them niggas should know what time it is
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale
Pusha T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake
Big Sean, Jay Electron', Tyler, Mac Miller
I got love for you all but I'm tryna murder you niggas
Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas
They dont wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you niggas
What is competition? I'm tryna raise the bar high
Who tryna jump and get it? You better off tryna skydive
Out the exit window of 5 G5's with 5 grand
With your granddad as the pilot he drunk as fuck tryna land
With the hand full of arthritis and popping prosthetic leg
Bumpin Pac in the cockpit so the shit that pops in his head
Is an option of violence, someone heard the stewardess said
That your parachute is a latex condom hooked to a dread

Its important that we make this alliance to affirm the notion that Hip Hop music and culture will forever be linked to the people and conditions that birthed it. Every artist on this tour is known for giving incredible live shows that create moments and uplift the spirits of the people. Were also deeply committed to allowing the music to build community and fight for justice. Immortal Technique and his crew are like family to me. I Self Divine is one of my dearest brothers and mentors. This is the tour Ive wanted to do for years, and its finally a reality. Brother Ali
"When I was a kid, I had a master teacher instruct me in the Martial Arts. Ju Jitsu, Street fighting. A plethora of styles to say the least. I will always remember though, what my old master said to me one day, "While you're smoking weed, someone is running miles. While you're playing video games, someone is practicing Kata. While you're hanging out in the street with your friends someone is doing push ups. And when you and this person meet, he's going to fuckin' destroy you." So while you're reading this we're doing push ups, running miles and practicing. See you soon." - Immortal Technique
About the artists:
Brother Ali: With a recently released fifth studio album (and fifth release on Rhymesayers) now under his belt in the form of Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color, Midwestern emcee Brother Ali has solidified himself as a name to be remembered in the Hip Hop landscape of today. His critically acclaimed work is known for having a political edge with talk of faith and reality, and though his messages have strong appeal to his audience, his uniquely soulful tone and cadence have earned Ali a strong following and an ear-catching catalog of work.
Immortal Technique: A Harlem-based emcee who progressed through the ranks of the New York City battle rap scene and found success as a recording artist. Although he is a accomplished lyricist, Immortal Technique is also widely known as a voice of Revolution/activism. The Billboard charting artist has sold over 250,000 records and been hard at work preparing his long awaited 4th album The Middle Passage, and recently released an award winning DVD entitled The (R)evolution of Immortal Technique (directed by Cary Stuart).
Poison Pen: Though many may know his name through his extensive work in battle rap, Poison Pen also keeps busy as an emcee and show host. He has appeared on URL, Grind Time Now, BET, MTV, and more. The Brooklyn native also raps alongside Immortal Technique as part of the world famous crew 'Rebel Arms'.
