Meek Mill Says Kendrick Lamar "Can Run That Backpack, I'ma Run These Streets"

Meek Mill responds to Kendrick Lamar's "Control (HOF)" verse, and says that Kendrick wasn't being disrespectful on the track, he was just being competitive.

Although Eminem dropped a new record moments ago, the focus hasn't completely shifted off Kendrick Lamar just yet. Meek Mill, who also dropped a new record dedicated to Lil Snupe yesterday, spoke in a radio interview with Power 99 about the K. Dot verse on "Control (HOF)."

"He's not comin' at him in a disrespectful way, he's comin' at him in a competitive way," said Meek of Kendrick calling out certain rappers on "Control." He went on to draw a sports comparison, "It's like if me and my homie playin' basketball—I'ma tell you: I'ma dunk on you, I'ma spin off you, I'ma give you 30 points a night like Lebron [James]. I'm pretty sure [NBA players] hang around each other in the club and all that, but [still trash talk competitively]."

The MMG rapper went on to proclaim that he runs the streets, and Kendrick (and Black Hippy) can run the backpacks. "I'ma tell y'all: y'all what y'all run; I run the streets," the Philly native stated. "I'm in a lane by myself. I'm the only [one] that's lyrically spittin' some street music and gettin' money. Kendrick [Lamar and Black Hippy], I'ma tell 'em in a rap: y'all can run that backpack, I'ma run these streets."

"We gonna have fun with it; get money. Hip Hop needed that," he added.
