Royce 5’9 & Lupe Fiasco Trade Diss Tracks – And We’re Here For It!
Written by 2DOPEBOYZ on July 22, 2021
In terms of this rap sh*t, Royce 5’9 is likely one of the greatest to have ever achieved it. For almost twenty years he’s been probably the most constant and elite emcees within the recreation. And although I’ll not put up about Lupe Fiasco for private causes, he’s a legit alien too. So, after the 2 began going backwards and forwards on-line over who may rap higher, we’d be mendacity if we didn’t hope for some bars. And, nicely… that’s precisely what we bought!
As response to Lupe – who, after the backwards and forwards, went on IG Reside and kicked a prolonged freestyle addressing Royce and the entire scenario (HHNM has an amazing break down of your entire factor) – Royce got here via within the late night time with a seven-minute monitor known as “Silence of the Lambda” that featured a number of pictures on the Chicago rapper.
“I S-M-H, I allow you to nay-say/ Y’all legends ain’t protected/ I desecrate Flex, I beautify Sway/ I estimate 100 left, I let the Kay Slay,” Royce exclaims. ”I don’t carry suitcases on huge runs to malls deep/ I don’t carry huge weapons to a small beef/ I don’t actually care what Mickey Factz has to say/ Add Lupe, that’s touché/ I don’t care for giant gums and small tooth/ You recognize the gold all froze if I’ma buy bling/ Simply so , not a soul walkin’ the earth this imply/ Bow earlier than the king, kiss the goat all objective ring/ Whereas the god poses like Bow Soulja meme/ Y’all with all of the jokes, chuckle exhausting however y’all ridiculous/ I’m with all of the smoke, Matt Barnes, Sha’carri Richardson”
This continues continuous for a number of minutes till Nickel decides to up the ante with a closing stanza the place he states he’s Benny the Butcher, Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole wrapped in a single and instantly responds to Lupe’s “with out Eminem you’d be broke” rhyme with a reminder that Kanye West performed an enormous half in his discovery and profession.
“I’m Benny, I’m Kenny and Cole/ I’m bimmy and po, I’ll hit my enemy and chalk any opposed/ If Umi says you actually the goat, who tryna hit em the Mos […] I’m Jill Scott playin Gil Scot Heron/ With Preem, H.E.R and D’Angelo/ Queen serving me cantaloupe, hammock low/ Swerve lambs on Atlanta roads/ Earl “Animal“ Manigualt, furs lamb or the nana goat/ The pearl deal with the place ammo go/ Reply struggle together with your woman nana or aunt ol’ go/ Cancel cultures annual, Santa Po is the anecdote/ Most cancers don’t take with no consideration no household although/ The streets received’t hand us no handbook so we go Hansel Emanuel/ You forgot the dude who was about The Chi, who been locked inside/ Wtithout him you’d be useless, in all probability dread standing beside you/ Fed almon and lied to, whereas the pink digicam disguise you/ You violent however the place was that for the Craig Kallmans and Kaisers/ 9 minute freestyle about me, I needed to make enjoyable of bro/ I bought loads issues, my n*gga, rapping ain’t a type of”
Produced by Carlos “Six July” Broady, press play on “Silence of the Lambda” under and keep tuned for Lupe’s response – which, I’m positive is already in movement. We could have our variations, however I do nonetheless take into account him among the best rappers doing it, as nicely, and actually stay up for what can come from this battle. So long as it stays on wax, in fact.
UPDATE: Effectively, that was quick! Actually hours later, Lupe has returned fireplace with a diss monitor of his personal known as “Steve Jobs: SLR three half of).” And rattling, he simply took issues to a different degree. That is loopy.
Produced by his longtime collaborator, Soundtrakk, the monitor extends six minutes with Lupe responding on to what Royce was saying on “Silence” whereas including a number of missiles of his personal – saying Nickel lacks a traditional album, has piggybacked off Eminem, relied on DJ Premier, and much more. He even wished God took Royce as an alternative of Biz Markie (RIP), which I hope doesn’t take this battle previous the sales space. We simply want bars, guys.
“Lambda Lambda Lambda, I feel that shit was… sweeet/ I want I may simply kiss you on the cheek/ Nerds have their palms in all the pieces, gangstas received’t even contact the police/ Why don’t you inform your n****s get that/ Take a few of them cool totally’s and go get a few of our shit again/ The issue is that you just ain’t by no means had an influence/ KitKats and chit chat and syntax, received’t make up for a way a lot you sit again,” Lu raps. ”I feel that n***a scared, he by no means go away Heaven trigger he already useless/ N***a, are you insane? What’s the purpose of figuring out level and intention/ If the n****s you gonna bang look precisely the identical/ That ain’t muthafuckin’ cool, that’s a muthafuckin’ disgrace […] “We each put on glasses, the distinction is I used to be at school considering it was cool and also you have been considering of skipping lessons/ Listening to your monitor file, I can see you have been skipping classics/ I did it on my first one and delivered to the lots/ Your songs are in-memorable, your verses are impenetrable/ I ain’t even hearken to that diss file, I solely fuck with you explanation for your interviews/ I ain’t even journey, if you known as me a bitch/ I used to be like have a look at Salem, calling me a witch/ Take a look at how they made him, look how a lot they gave him/ Take a look at all of the assists/ N***a if it wasn’t for Premier! You wouldn’t be. If it wasn’t for, if it wasn’t for, if it wasn’t for, if it wasn’t for… n***a I bought a dozen extra/ Hov assume I’m Hov, Nas assume I’m Nas/ That’s the trick, you ain’t gotta assume if n****s already assume you might be.”
This continues, till Lu closes out with some physique pictures.
“In seven minutes he did it/ If he knew freestyle he coulda rented Heaven for seven minutes/ And been achieved what wanted to be achieved by the second sentence,” Lu raps. ”All this additional innings could come throughout as grasp — however my impression’s apprentice/ Your penmanship has the fingerprints of a gimmick/ An affection and an intimacy of impressions of that n***a you buddies with/ I ain’t gotta say it to say it, I can’t even blame you, the n****’s considered one of my favorites.”
Test it out under and be looking out for Royce’s response – which, based mostly off the directness of Lupe’s diss, must be reasonably attention-grabbing. Let’s go!
