Debating the only best rap verse is a barbershop query for the ages, proper subsequent to “Who’s your Top Five?” and “Who is the GOAT?” In an interview with Variety, Kendrick Lamar was requested his opinion on “the best single verse of all time,” and he gave the distinction to somebody particular.
“Probably need to be Snoop Dogg’s,” stated Lamar. “Hey, one, two, three, and to the 4, Snoop Doggy Dogg and Dr. Dre. First rap I realized.”
The verse Kendrick is referring to comes from Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s 1992 hit “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang,” the primary single off The Chronic. The alternative is no surprise contemplating Lamar’s West Coast lineage. Snoop infamously handed the torch of West Coast rap to Kung Fu Kenny in 2011.
While Kendrick did not decide a verse from his catalog for the distinction, he beforehand revealed to i-D that he believes “FEAR.” is his best lyrical accomplishment.
“It’s utterly trustworthy,” stated Kendrick. “The first verse is every thing that I feared from the time that I used to be 7 years outdated. The second verse I used to be 17, within the third it’s every thing I feared once I was 27. These verses are utterly trustworthy.”
I would not be stunned to see a rapper in 20 years answering the identical query with a Kendrick verse. The solely drawback is, which one?
