The Kendrick Responses Are Rolling In

Kendrick Lamar performs onstage at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards at Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center on September 29, 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia.

On the first day, Kendrick Lamar released an insta-classic verse (on Big Sean's "Control") calling out basically every rapper making headlines in 2013. On the second day, a bunch of other rappers released responses. There is already a Twitter account tracking the "Control" follow-ups, but here is a sampling for your edification and fake-rap-beef enjoyment. More to come, one assumes.

First up: Joell Ortiz, who is feeling more than a little territorial about Brooklyn.

Here's Lupe Fiasco, who spent most of yesterday writing responses for other rappers. (Like, ones actually named in Kendrick's verse.)

B.o.B would rather be playing guitar:

Kevin Hart's alter-ego made an Instagram video:

Iman Shumpert just wants to stay on the Knicks:

One more from Cassidy:

And this is not a rap verse, but it's funny:
