Kendrick Lamar Disses Big Sean in New Song ‘The Heart Part 4’
After posting the Roman numerals “IV” on Instagram, Kendrick Lamar released the fourth song in his series “The Heart.” Part 4 is released 5 years after part 3. Critics believe he may have taken shots at Drake.

But a lot of fans on Twitter seem to think that Kendrick reserved a few shots for his “Control” collaborator Big Sean. Kendrick had previously caused a lot of furor with his verse on the Big Sean track when he called out just about every rapper making music at the time. Now fans think that Kendrick has focused his sights specifically on Big Sean. The offending lyrics are:
“My fans can’t wait for me to son ya punk a*s and crush your whole lil sh*t
I’ll Big Pun ya punk a*s, you a scared little b*tch
Tiptoein’ around my name, n*gga, ya lame
And when I get at you, homie, don’t you just tell me you was just playin’”
Later he adds, “Hoe, Jay Z Hall of Fame, sit ya punk a*s down,” a possible reference to Big Sean’s Hall of Fame album.
Fans think that this might be Kendrick clapping back for lines on Big Sean’s “No More Interviews” that seemed to refer to Kendrick — “And I’m just not impressed by you n*ggas rapping fast/ Who sound like one big asthma attack but trash when I’m rapping it back/ Who you put in your top five and claim they the savior of rap.”
A lot of speculators have also pointed to Kendrick’s repeated use of the words “little” and “lil” on the track as a possible play on Big Sean’s name.
The conspiracy hasn’t just looped in Big Sean though. Others believe that Kendrick is also taking shots at Drake with the line “Don’t tell a lie on me/ I won’t tell the truth ’bout you.”
This could be a reference to the ghost-writing claims that dog Drake’s career (something Kendrick seemed to reference on “King Kunta” too).
