This post highlights the reaction of many celebrities and other rap artists twitter reaction to the verse directly after it came out. The article by the user Dharmic X has snapshots of the twitter posts, with comments from the user underneath. I really like this article because it highlights some of the more controversial reactions from many of the game’s best rappers. The majority of the tweets are from the same day or the day after the album was dropped showing the very immediate second hand reactions to the verse. This article serves to show how far and how much influence the verse sent through the nation.
