It’s nothing but love between Big Sean and Kendrick Lamar.
The rapper revealed that he reached out to K-Dot following the death of Nipsey Hussle on on his song ‘Deep Reverence,’ when he raps:
“It wasn’t even no real issues there to begin with / Lack of communication and wrong information from people / Fueled by the ego is like mixing flames with diesel / Energy crazy, I realize that it’s a two-way street.”
Now he spoke candidly about the miscommunication between them to Complex.
His words below:
“The situation was, he thought that people around him were telling him something, people around me were telling me something, and it just really wasn’t the case. So, when we were able to talk, it was a good reconciliation and it was a good mutual respect. Even when he heard ‘Deep Reverence,’ he hit me and was like ‘Yo, I appreciate you showing that love. I appreciate that love in the verse. You and Nip went crazy. Y’all gassed on it.'”
According to Sean, hearing from Lamar brought him closure, saying:
“It was good to get that response from your brother. Because, on that record, I just was keeping it open and honest and real. I wasn’t trying to hold back. It was not out of disrespect, either. It was out of respect for myself and the things I’ve learned along the way.”
He goes on to blame the internet for trying to pit the two against each other, saying:
“What really was blowing it out of proportion, I feel like, was the internet.”
