Papoose says he feels the freestyle was aimed at him, which he describes as "comical." He also states he will wait to hear the full freestyle before he responds, though he doesn't believe it will be that impressive. "He’ll never be able to shine my shoes, lyrically," he says. "This is hip-hop, I love hip-hop, but I just want to continue to show and prove that he can’t fuck with me lyrically. You can look forward to that in my next release, straight up. I live in the studio, that’s my second home. So yeah, I’m definitely going to respond."
As stated earlier, Papoose's comments here come after Kendrick Lamar made a handful of veiled references in his BET Hip-Hop Awards freestyle, which people initially thought were aimed at Drake. Kendrick raps, "And nothing's been the same since they dropped 'Control'/And tucked a sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes/Ha-ha, jokes on you."
In September Papoose responded to Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse, rapping, "Tell Kendrick and TDE they need to lay off the PCP/Far from the king, this is the city of BDP." Between that, Kendrick's upcoming BET freestyle and Papoose's response, this could get very interesting.
On a related note, last night Papoose tweeted out, "Drake fall back sweetheart I got this #Bkln." It's since been deleted, and Papoose claims the tweet was sent out because his Twitter account was hacked. However, this tweet still lingers on his timeline:
