Big Sean – Control f. Kendrick Lamar & Jay Electronica (prod. No I.D.)

So Kendrick Lamar’s verse on Big Sean’s ‘Control’ set the internet ablaze after Funkmaster Flex dropped it last night.

 

I’m usually homeboys with the same ni**as I’m rhymin’ with/ But this is hip-hop and them ni**as should know what time it is. And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big K.R.I.T, Wale, Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Big Sean, Jay Electron, Tyler, Mac Miller/ I got love for you all, but I’m tryna murder you ni**as/ Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you ni**as/ They don’t wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you ni**as.”

 

Critics say he’s coming at fellow rappers and single handedly proclaimed himself the King of the Rap Game. I disagree, Kendrick is simply keeping healthy competition alive within hip hop. After all the buddy-buddy happenings of recent weeks (Dame/Jay, Ma$e/Diddy) I think it was perfect to throw a little controversy back into the mix in a positive way. As far as this ‘changing the rap game’…I’d say it will just illicit responses from those mentioned and others who may perhaps feel threatened.

 

I’m a little shocked that Jay Electronica’s voice even being heard on a track didn’t blow peoples minds. Maybe I’m just a super fan?

 

Listen to the track in full below.
