Claiming he was on a mission to murder Pusha T, Big Krit, Drake and Mac Miller (and more) Kendrick is declaring war or maybe he's creating an opportunity. In any case it made social media burst with commentaries eluding Kendrick's skills as creme de la creme and he is unstoppable, But, for some reason I'm not convinced are you?
