Monday, Sep 9, 2013 11:50PM
Maybach Music Group's Meek Mill has acknowledged his new "Ooh Kill Em" diss record came days to weeks late but gave a pretty respectable reason for going at Kendrick Lamar with a delayed response.
According to Meek, his priorities to finishing up multiple projects including an upcoming Dreamchasers 3 release forced the setback.
"The day I dropped it was the day I finished it," Meek said, explaining why the response was a bit delayed. "I've been working on my mixtape, Self Made Vol 3. and trying to get music for my album so I didn't really have time just to focus on dis raps. ... "Kendrick made a statement where he wanted to be competitive, so I made it competitive," Meek added. "It's a lot of people who he said their names but a lot of people like to play chess and poker, etcetera, and I'm just having fun. I could do that all day, so I just wanted to start it off and let him know -- let's play. I like having fun, I love to rap, so it's fun to me." (MTV)
Meek's highly anticipated diss track surfaced across the Internet over the weekend.
He gave fair warning with the title of his vicious diss record towards Cassidy, now Meek Mill goes for the big dogs with another response "Ooh Kill Em." Over a remixed version of Dr. Dre's "Forgot About Dre," the Phily MC takes aim at TDE general Kendrick Lamar for his lyrics on Big Sean's "Control." Along with "I Be On Dat," and "Kendrick You Next," expect Meek's latest record to appear on his upcoming Dreamchasers 3 mixtape hosted by DJ Drama on September 29. (Miss Info TV)
The track features Meek going in on K. Dot with handfuls of bars.
"Nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got something to say /But nothing comes out when they move they lips /I spit crack for my n*ggas that be moving bricks /With they exclusive b*tch /Sippin' on Amaretto when she loose and sh*t /N*ggas sleeping on me then I Freddy Krueger sh*t /With a few Philly n*ggas that be shootin' sh*t /I'm like Dre, I wish I had my n*gga Snupe for this /Oh, I grew up, I screw up a oz of crack /Then I blow up they knew us before all this rap /I been knew it was shooters /You fuck around with me, get smoked like a hookah /My ruger go booyah, I do it for the streets /You do it for the n*gga with the backpack /I do it for the n*gga on the corner" ("Ooh Kill Em")
Mill also references Lamar's now-infamous "King of New York" line from "Control."
"Hold up wait a minute let me back track /Hov gave you 24, let you have that /Man you claiming you the king of new york /What the f*ck wrong with you n*gga, step back /Hundred shots, amateur that your snap cap /Everybody want the crown so I snatch that /Heard your gun go doo-dooo-dooo /Well my gun go blap-blap-blap-blap. /What the f*ck I gotta whisper to n*ggas /To earn my respect just to get to these n*ggas /Go ether take over or Jigga on n*ggas /I really go 2Pac and Biggie on n*ggas/What the f*ck wrong with him?" ("Ooh Kill Em")
