Royce 5’9 and Lupe Fiasco are trading lyrical punches on Instagram. The podcast-cohosts are having a friendly rap beef on the social media platform in order to assertain who the better rapper is.
After weeks of back-n-forth on the gram, Royce makes the beef official with “Silence Of The Lambda.” On the Carlos Broady-produced track the Detroit emcee comes for anyone speaking ill of his name.
They tryna kill a Lord online premature as Biz Markie
Can’t expect you to like me more than you love rap beefin’
You respect white people more than you love black people
Shit, I let you waste where the apes ate
I SMH, I let you nay-say, y’all legends ain’t safe
I desecrate Flex, I decorate Sway
I estimate a hundred left, I let the Kay slay
I don’t carry suitcases on big runs to malls deep
I don’t carry big guns to a small beef
I don’t really care what Mickey Factz has to say, add Lupe.
Hours after Royce dropped Silence Of The Lambda, Lupe responded with “Steve Jobs (SLR 3 1/2).” On the track Lu questions Nickel’s position in hip hop.
“I’m ain’t even trip, when you called me a bitch, I was like look at Salem, calling me a witch, look at how they made him, look how much they gave him, look at all the assists, nigga, if it wasn’t for Premier, you wouldn’t be…”
