Here’s a quick briefing as to what is going on. The music is NSFW.
West Coast rapper Kendrick Lamar dropped a very big bomb of a verse in a recently released single with Big Sean. His second verse was brutal in all sense of the word as he called out numerous rappers and essentially called himself the best in the business.
(Don’t understand the lyrics? Here is some help.)
That verse caused Joell Ortiz to respond with his own diss track even though he wasn’t mentioned in Lamar’s second verse.
(Lupe Fiasco, B.O.B. and Cassidy have also issued responses despite not being mentioned in the verse.)
(Didn’t catch all of that. Here are the lyrics broken down.)
Offseason time for NFL players gives them opportunities to pursue other interests. For Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson, that’s making a rap video. Featuring Snoop Dogg (whom doesn’t appear on screen with Jackson throughout the entire video) in Las Vegas, the new song is about swag and bling. Of course.
The song in itself is catchy, but it’s isn’t great. It’s something you’d probably bump on a drive on a freeway without traffic. In traffic, it could cause road rage.
I suppose this is good in comparison to what other NFL players have gotten themselves into this offseason. As long as it’s harmless, I can accept it. I hope this doesn’t distract Jackson from his football career. The song isn’t all that great, so it’s best he focuses on what he’s really good at.
YouTube sensation Sarah Redden has released her latest 49ers rap video. In this video, she’s all about Colin Kaepernick making big plays to the studs on offense like Frank Gore, Vernon Davis and Michael Crabtree. Even LaMichael James gets a shout out in this video.
She’s gotten quite popular since her first video and with the 49ers on this playoff run, it’s a good time to have another hit on the board like this.
Check out her first video that got her famous.
