Is Kendrick Lamar's new video Humble dissing The Weeknd? It sure does come off that way. But why? Didn't Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd tour for Sidewalks single off of The Weeknd's Starboy album?
Those two seemed to be getting along quite well. But not only that but the Weeknd surprised Montana with a $100,000.00 as a thank you for putting him on the map. So...what gives? What makes Kendrick Lamar think The Weeknd must sit his butt down and be humble??
And he called him so much stuff...
Look at the lyrics:
Nobody pray for me
If you're not there for me
(Meaning: Save me your false prayers.)
(He kept referring to him as a girl and a pussy...)
Girl, I can buy yo' ass the world with my paystub
Ooh, that pussy good, won't you sit it on my taste bloods?
Then he refers to him as a baby then softens the blow of his words by suggesting that his tone and lyrics are not as harsh as they could be...
Right stroke put lil' baby in a spiral
Soprano C, we like to keep it on a high note
It's levels to it, you and I know, bitch, be humble
In the video it is like he is talking to a close friend quietly, telling him to be humble...
The visual reference to The Weeknd's head and body being on fire in his video I Can't Feel My Face:
Kendrick Lamar's Lyrics in humble: I'm tired of the photoshop...
He kept refering to the Weeknd as a girl and telling him as the girl in their friendship/ relationship, by telling him:
Still will take you down right on your mama's couch in Polo socks
Telling him that he's a fake:
Watch my soul speak, you let the meds talk, ayy
If I kill a nigga, it won't be the alcohol,
And on top of that he called him Bitch so many times.
I mean...Big Sean had ego enough to warrant a little over the shoulder cussing in Kendrick Lamar's Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe, but The Weeknd is probably scratching his head and thinking, "Jeez, Lamar. What did I do to deserve this diss?"
To The Weeknd's credit, his album is called Starboy and warrants the massive cgi video compliments to his lyrics. It is a play on words. He is a Star Boy as in he is popular, but he is also not of this world.
If you can't say for sure that Humble disses The Weeknd then you watch the video and listen to the lyrics and figure it out on your own.
