Iman Shumpert and Kendrick Lamar to have a Rap Battle? Knick Responds to Rapper in New Track

After rapper Kendrick Lamar got the internet buzzing after calling out every relevant rapper from his era Monday Night, another rapper has decided he is up for a challenge. That rapper happens to be Knicks guard Iman Shumpert, a promising young athlete who has dabbled in the rap game as his “side hustle”. Shumpert recently scored a gig on First Lady Michelle Obama’s upcoming rap album (yes, that is happening, but Michelle will not rap on the album herself), and is clearly feeling pretty confident. Shumpert dropped his latest freestyle yesterday, and just announced that “He Will Respond” to Lamar’s aggressive comments toward other young rappers.

Shumpert ended up making a response track called “Dear Kendrick”. First, he tweeted this:

Then, he dropped this

And at the end of the song, he says he wants to be a Knick for life. So this was a pretty fun sequence of events.
