A lot of people consider Kendrick Lamar the current King of Hip-Hop and to be honest I’m one of them. The man released one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful albums of all time: Good Kid, M.A.A.D City. No one thought Kenny could ever top his first mainstream project but almost 3 years later he released To Pimp A Butterfly, the album that is considered one of the greatest projects in Hip Hop history.
In the couple of interviews Kendrick Lamar said that he was listening to Eminem growing up and influenced his style a lot and you can clearly see it in K. Dot’s “aggressive and intensive” voice, much similar as Eminem. Below are two of the most intense verses by Eminem and Kendrick Lamar and to be honest that’s the kind of song I was expected from them, not “Love Game,” sorry.
Verses: Kendrick Lamar – Radioactive & Eminem – Bad Guy
Verses: Kendrick Lamar – Deep Water & Eminem – Medicine Man
