    Drugs are everywhere in hip-hop. Whether they're mentioned on the radio, seen in music videos, or smuggled into concerts, drugs are pretty much unavoidable in the genre. Weed, lean, pills, coke, booze, shrooms, you name it, dope's not to hard to find. Many rappers, like Juicy J or Lil Wayne, have made it clear in their music that they love getting fucked up. Despite the popularity of drugs in hip-hop culture, not every rapper partakes in popping mollys or getting fried.

    Despite being one of the most acclaimed, Kendrick Lamar isn't exactly the flashiest of rappers. The Compton emcee doesn't do a whole lot of flexing, and the new home he's reportedly bought himself reflects that. The modest abode is located about an hour outside of L.A. in Eastvale, California, and appears to be in a fairly suburban area.

    There were certainly a lot of "Control" responses within the weeks of Kendrick Lamar's infamous verse, but not one from the actual rappers mentioned. Better late than never, J.

    Kendrick Lamar and Drake's alleged "beef" has been so entirely subliminal that there's a chance fans just concocted the whole thing themselves. Then again, once in a while a line goes by that seems a little too loaded to be coincidence, for instance, when Kendrick spits "Motherfucker, know I started from the bottom," to open his "Deep Water" verse on Dr. Dre's Compton.
