Kendrick Lamar takes over Twitter | 8/13/2013, 6:44 p.m.

That kind of braggadocio is intrinsic to hip-hop, going way back before Master Gee rapped about "going down in history/as the baddest rapper there ever could be." As Twitterer @ashe_phoenix pointed out, rappers still brag today, but more often than not, they brag about being better than their listeners.

So Lamar had everyone talking, inspiring several worldwide trending topics, including #TwitpicYourKendrickVerseReaction and #RappersKendrickDidntMention.
