Charron Explains Dissing Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, Justin Bieber & Usher
Exclusive: Charron speaks about why he decided to diss Kendrick Lamar, Justin Bieber and Usher in his new "B.E.T. Cypher Verse 2013" video.
Charron has dissed Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross and others in his new "B.E.T. Cypher Verse 2013" video.
Charron spoke with HipHopDX today (October 14) about the disses and explained the release.
"It was unfortunate that Kendrick Lamar [has] such a perfect multi-syllabic pattern," Charron said in an exclusive statement to HipHopDX. "[Kendrick Lamar] just rhymed well with Hendrix guitar. In retrospect, I should have made a punchline off of Kennedy's car. I'm a fan of his music. The name drop was just for the sake of a great rhyme."
Charron also addressed his disses aimed at Rick Ross, Usher and Justin Bieber.
"Rick Ross is a joke," Charron said. "He's the definition of a poser. The community attacked [battle rapper/former King of the Dot champion] Arcane for stealing rhymes [from Caustic]. This man stole an identity. Bieber is just a wreck. Future Lindsay Lohan on our hands. He was accused of spitting on his own fans. Those poor kids were probably drenched in Usher juice."
Charron Praises Big Pun, Big L & Ol' Dirty Bastard
In Charron's video for "B.E.T. Cypher Verse 2013," he also praises Big Pun, Big L and Ol' Dirty Bastard. According to Charron, he was influenced by their releases, most significantly by Capital Punishment, The Big Picture and N***a Please respectively.
"I'm upset because I know with a longer lifespan, they would have topped these projects," Charron said in his interview with HipHopDX. "They all have influences on my style, mostly on my wittiness. It's impossible to even compete with their cadence. I actually came up with the ODB line while I was chilling with Ghostface on tour. After our first show in Montreal, he brought me on his tour bus and asked me to rap for him and Killah Priest. I freestyled for over 10 minutes and ended it off with that line. They both loved it."
Charron Says He's Yet To Hear From BET
Charron released the video as a result of being excluded from BET's Hip Hop Awards cypher.
Charron says he has not heard back from the network regarding his exclusion.
"I have not," Charron said. "Various news outlets have reached out and no one has received a statement."
HipHopDX contacted BET October 2 and again today regarding this matter. BET has yet to respond.
Charron was supposed to appear on the BET Hip Hop Awards cyphers after winning a competition on BET's "106 & Park." However, the rapper was excluded from the filming of the cyphers.
During Charron's appearance on "106 & Park," host Bow Wow said the winner of that competition would earn a chance to be a part of the cypher. Charron won the competition.
On October 2, Charron spoke with HipHopDX about being excluded from the cypher despite winning the battle on "106 & Park."
"I was avoided for months and given a response after the cypher was pre-filmed," Charron said in an exclusive statement to HipHopDX. "At the end of the day, I was denied of a prize we contractually agreed on.
"I have proof that I've emailed people I've been dealing with," Charron added. "I made phone calls. I have records from June and earlier dates. They didn't respond...They [later] told me they changed the format for this year, but if you look, there's no format change. It's the same as every year."
