Kendrick Lamar is speaking up against rap beefs. The up-and-coming rapper tells “Acclaim Magazine” that he doesn’t plan on getting into a public feud with other rappers. Lamar explains that rap beefs are simply some artists’ way of keeping themselves relevant. He adds often rappers get away with making outlandish comments towards other rappers just before dropping a record. The steam generated from those arguments may make musicians popular, but Lamar prefers to stay focused on his music. For him, “Music comes first and always speaks first.” He adds there may be artists that enjoy more popularity than him, but their albums won’t garner the same critical reception as Lamar’s debut album “good kid, m.A.A.d. city.” The bottom line for Lamar is to “let the music speak.” He adds that he won’t “get into all the crazy shenanigans of the business.”
Â Lamar’s “good kid, m.A.A.d. city” hit stores in October last year. The record debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 chart after selling more than 242-thousand copies in its first week.
