Big Sean who?! You must mean the guy who hosted Kendrick Lamar as he dropped one of the ILLEST verses in hip hop ever. Monday afternoon Big Sean leaked a song called “Control,” featuring Kendrick Lamar and Jay Electronica, but to no surprise, K.Dot steals the spotlight with possibly the best rap verse of the year.
Kendrick says – “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. 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 tryin’ to murder you ni**as”. He goes as far as saying “I’m Machiavelli’s offspring, I’m the king of New York/ king of the Coast, one hand, I juggle them both.” Calling out the entire east coast rap scene, even his friends he shared the song with!
Pusha T, who was mentioned in the song tweeted “I hear u loud and clear my ni**a.’
Joe Budden sent out a tweet this morning defending himself and the East Coast that said “@KendrickLamar u my ni**a 4 life bro…. But u gon learn today.” Possibly suggesting a friendly rap feud for the title of ‘The King Of New York.’ Whether enticing rap battles, or trying to get the entire rap industry to step their game up to Kendricks level of rhyming, K.Dot has just solidified his spot as one of the best, boldest MC’s to ever do it.
