In a new Pull Up interview with Joe Budden, Big Sean finally opened up about his rumored beef with Kendrick Lamar.

"I wasn't beefing with nobody," Sean began, referencing the rumored feud that dates back five years. Specifically, the gossip started over his 2015 freestyle, "Me, Myself, and I," which contained the bars, "Y'all braggin' about so and so, like 'Oh, he really it? / The new nigga in rap? Well, can he really spit?” / Or do he just hide behind his skits" — lyrics that many thought to take shots at Kendrick.

According to Sean, fans were blowing things out of proportion. "Every verse I do, people be like, 'Oh is this a response? Is this a response?' And I’m like, 'Damn I can’t even show no aggression, people think it’s a damn response.'"

He also recalled speaking with Punch, the president of Lamar's label TDE. "He’s like, ‘Bro, what’s up? You ever hollered at Kendrick?' And then as soon as he said that, it was like, 'Ohhh.' I damn near put it on the back burner in my brain. I’m like, 'Damn. No, I never did."

Sean later revealed that it was losing Nipsey Hussle that prompted him to reconnect with Lamar. "One of the people that, especially after Nipsey died, was important for me to connect with was Kendrick. When this whole Big Sean, Kendrick beef was going on, it was something I wish I would have spoken up about because there was nothing."

So sometime last year, Big Sean finally called up Kendrick and the two patched things up. "The respect is mutual," he told Budden.
