Kendrick Lamar made a rare comeback to social media last week to declare that his upcoming fifth album with Top Dawg Entertainment would be his final. The Compton-born rapper has been with the label since 2005, when it was created by Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, but he’s ready to branch out. Isaiah Rashad sent out a tweet shortly after the rapper broke the news, which some mistook for an oblique message to him. “Everyone is in tears. You’re nothing special. “Stop embarrassing us,” he said in a now-deleted tweet. Rashad explained that this was not the case, despite their expectations.
“I found that out after n****s said I was dissing him,” Rashad said about Kendrick’s announcement during an interview with The Breakfast Club. “I was on the way to my kid’s birthday party on Saturday, and me and her mom had had a little verbal whatever, and I knew that I couldn’t really say anything that I wanted to say, so I said it on Twitter for a second, and I’m forgetting that n****s are watching me, so I deleted it.” He added, “Not about him but I’m like damn, she’s actually going to see this and it’s kinda mean.”
After deleting the original tweet, Rashad provided a quick explanation. The rapper later commented, “N**** can’t eem subtweet his ex in peace.”
