Earlier this month, a snippet of Kendrick Lamar‘s verse from the 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher began making the rounds, featuring the Compton rapper seemingly taking shots at Drake. Last night, the full cypher aired during the awards telecast, and it was clear that Kendrick was indeed calling out the Canadian rapper/sweater enthusiast. Over the ominous strains of Mobb Deep’s classic “Shook Ones Part II,” Kendrick dropped the following lyrical salvo: “Yeah, and nothing’s been the same since they dropped ‘Control’/ And tucked a sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes/ Ha-ha joke’s on you, high-five, I’m bulletproof/ Your shit’ll never penetrate/ Pin the tail on the donkey/ Boy you been a fake.” Check out the video below, along with a transcript of Kendrick’s full verse.

I hate y’all, I’ll do anything to replace y’all

Shout out to Face Mob. A ghetto boy ’til I’m unemployed with a day job

And kicking boxes, I kick a** and then kick knowledge

I’m way more polished than 99 percent of the scholars

You thought had graduated

I’m the master that masturbated on your favorite MC

And to the industry that wanted me assassinated

You either corny or an opportunist

I let you eat now go back to church and steal crackers at communion

What I’m doing

I’m about to crack the Da Vinci code, yeah

And nothing’s been the same since they dropped ‘Control’

And tucked a sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes

Ha, ha, joke’s on you

High five

I’m bulletproof, your shots’ll never penetrate

Pin the tail on the donkey, boy you’ve been a fake

I got my thumb on hip-hop and my foot in the back of your a**

Aftermath get the last laugh

I serve n****s like Master Geoffrey

Jump on this curb

Turn a shottie to a verb if you let me

You know I’m a killer, I’m on your head

You know I’m a killer, The West Coast Cosa Nostra

Under oath ’til it’s over

Ya over owe us

So what the f***?

I f*** you n****s up

I f*** you n****s up

She suck and f***

I f***in’ duck you f***in’ n****s like when I want

You going dutch

You going f***in’ nuts

Acting irrational

Pop you then pop an Adderrall

Know the drill like a lateral, n****

I’m more Pappy Mason than Pastor Mason

Pacing back and forth

Racing my thoughts on embracing data

I spilled blood on my apron cooking this s*** up

I feel like some of y’all is hating

Quite frankly ya b**** booty should thank me for grabbing it

Turn these hoodrats to actresses

What a f***in’ magic trick

Accidents never happen when murder’s involved

Immaculate tactics so follow me

If you need me just call on me

I say “Hold up wait a minute”

Your career ain’t s*** unless you got some Kendrick in it

Your p**** ain’t s***

Ain’t no rumors left on my d*** unless you look like Jordin Sparks

Make my mark on the c***, mouah

Hollywood’s been good to me

Little hood n**** used to pawn mom’s jewelry

Family jewels big as f*** and I got the balls to say it

Balls deep, balling out ’til Spalding need a replacement

I’m outchea

the rest of your mouth chea

Invest in a vest

A Vietnam vet when you out near

The white court building spilling its Merlot

Fillin’ a woman

Pimp the industry

Remember these Stacy Adams and fur coats

Shook, you’re scared to death

You’re scared to look

In the mirror when Kendrick is near ya

King Kendrick
