Roc Nation’s Jay Electronica has come forward to extend his hand to rap rival 50 Cent and Top Dawg Entertainment’s Kendrick Lamar.
Jay Elect surprisingly apologized to both hip-hop stars on Twitter this past weekend months after publicly blasting them.
Speculation on K. Dot responding to Jay Elect’s public jabs developed a few weeks back.
Now it sounds like Kendrick has responded, if not vaguely, to Elect’s lack of musical production over the years on “untitled 07 | 2014 – 2016,” a track produced by Swizz Beatz and his five-year-old son Egypt on untitled unmastered. He sends the subliminals around the 3:18 marker, spitting:
“”You n*ggas fear me like ya’ll fear God
/You sound frantic, I hear panic in your voice
/Just know the mechanics of making your choice
/and writin’ your bars
/Before you poke out your chest, loosen your bra
/Before you step out of line and dance with the star
/I can never end a career if it never start”” (Complex)

Jay Elect and Top Dawg Entertainment president Dave Free went at each other on Twitter in February.
A screenshot of 50 Cent responding to an Instagram follower asking why he had not addressed Jay Elect’s recent Periscope disses landed across social media a few days prior.
Footage of Jay Elect letting loose on the hip-hop heavyweight and fellow rap star Kendrick Lamar on Periscope emerged online this past winter.
Jay Electronica was driving around Miami when he decided to broadcast live via Periscope for a while. During that drive, a fan asked him to play some Kendrick Lamar over his car speakers. “Fuck that,” Jay responded. He also said that 50 Cent is “on some sucker sh*t” and said he would “slap his f*ckin’ eyeballs loose out his scalp.”
