Dang, Kendrick. You really had to take it there, didn’t you? Gotta give you props, though, because while everyone’s trying to figure out what just happened, you’re already three moves ahead. Most of the rappers you named in Big Sean’s “Control” are still trying to figure out if it’s a diss or not, which shows you how far hip-hop has fallen. (more…)

Kendrick Lamar’s bars on Big Sean’s “Control” song caused an earthquake in the Hip-Hop world, especially in NY. Looks like the game is about to change and we’ll hear a lot of new songs/freestyles addressing the subject. This is great for Hip-Hop. Check out some reactions after the jump.

Unfortunately the song won’t appear on Big Sean’s Hall Of Fame album due to sample clearance issues. Kendrick literally murders the track. Check out some of his verses:
“I’m usually homeboys with the same niggass I’m rhymin wit/But this is hip hop and them niggass 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 niggass/Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you niggass.”
“I’m Machiavelli’s offspring, I’m the king of New York/King of the Coast, one hand, I juggle them both.”
