Our favorite conscious rapper, Kendrick Lamar, dropped his new single and video “Humble” last Thursday and has been receiving some hefty backlash from hip hop fans and feminist alike.

According to Complex, Hip hop fans are speculating whether or not Kendrick is throwing subs at Big Sean in his new song and from his previously released surprise track “The Heart Part 4” where he fires shots at an unnamed artist, believed to Big Sean, after he was accused of taking subliminal jabs at Kendrick on “No More Interviews”.

But what really has the internet in an uproar are Kendrick’s lyrics “I’m so sick and f**kin tired of the photoshop/ show me something natural like afro on Richard Pryor/ show me something natural like ass wit some stretch marks”. It has left women and men torn on the subject, with some praising him for promoting authentic beauty and with others accusing him of misogyny.

Well, what do y’all think. Check out the video below
