It’s been two months since Kendrick Lamar nearly broke social media platforms when he delivered a proverbial knockout punch to the industry on Big Sean’s “Control.” It seems that the Compton emcee hasn’t officially let bygones be bygones after countless industry hopefuls and vets attempted to strike back – as evidenced by the line “Nothing’s been the same since they dropped ‘Control’/ And tucked a sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes.” – which is pulled from BET’s Hip Hop Awards cypher, and a not-so-subtle shot at Drake. Featuring notable other verses from ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock and new TDE signee Isaiah Rashad, expect to see more 16’s dropping from the likes of A$AP Mob and Slaughterhouse from the award ceremony which airs in two weeks.
