Kendrick Lamar's Fiery Diss Track Targeting Big Sean, J Electronica, and French Montana Leaks - WhatsOnRap

Kendrick Lamar Track Dissing Big Sean, J Electronica and French Montana Leaks

Kendrick Lamar's Unreleased Diss Track Takes Aim at Big Sean, J Electronica, and French Montana.
In recent days, Kendrick Lamar's alleged leak has stirred quite the buzz, directly referencing Big Sean, Jay Electronica, and French Montana.

This purported leak is touted as the original rendition of the 2017 DAMN. track "Element," with the beat being recognized by fans as ultimately belonging to the Black Panther: The Album song "Paramedic!"

For obvious reasons, we can't include the actual alleged leak here. However, we can cite the lyrics. The alleged leak starts with lyrics found in the final studio version of "Element," particularly in its second verse, before venturing into different territory:

"Goin' digital and physical on all y'all
Fk subliminals, I put you on that roll call
French Montana speakin' on me in interviews
Very cynical, dry hatin' somethin' I don't approve
Jay Electronica put silencers on my Grammy night
Another dead prophet hopin' the God’ll give him life
Big Sean keep sneak dissin', I let it slide
I think his false confidence got him inspired
I can't make them respect you baby, it's not my job
You’re finally famous for who you date, not how you rhyme
Cute ass raps, get your puberty up
Then make you a classic album before you come at us
Drake and Meek Mill beef might got you gassed up
But I'm a whole 'nother beast, I'd really fk you up."

The studio version of "Element" was immediately interpreted as Kendrick offering similar energy, rapping, "Most of y'all throw rocks and try to hide your hand / Just say his name and I promise that you'll see Candyman."

Regarding the potential reasons, the callout to French Montana seems linked to remarks he made in a 2016 Breakfast Club interview (DAMN. was released a year later), while Jay Electronica made public comments about Kendrick and referenced him again on "The Mayweather Curse" in the same year. Jay later issued an apology.

As for Big Sean, he admitted they did have a simmering issue before things settled. He told Joe Budden, "One of the people that, especially after Nipsey [Hussle] died, was important for me to connect with was Kendrick. Me and Kendrick got a history...a relationship as peers. When this whole Big Sean, Kendrick beef was going on, it was something I wish I would have spoken up [on]."

Today, all is well between him and his "Control" collaborator. In 2020, Sean rapped in his Detroit 2 track "Deep Reverence" (featuring the late Nipsey Hussle) that there were never "real issues" between them. Instead, any perceived beef was due to "lack of communication and wrong information." Sean later revealed on Sway in the Morning that he and Kendrick had a "good reconciliation."
