New Music | Listen: “Control” [Big Sean Feat. Kendrick Lamar + Jay Electronica] + What’s The Meaning Behind The Call-Outs?


So, so the talk of the morning has been all about Kendrick Lamar and his “best rap ever”…this and that — that and this. Simply put, his verse has gone straight viral. Shoot as an avid music lover, I even had to see what all the fuss was about.  So I did. I checked it out.

And here you go.

This ain’t no rapper. This whatchu call a lyricist. What I love. What I genuinely can respect. Even Big Sean spit a few nasty lines… really he’s been spitting some stuff a lot lately. He continues to give praise to his hometown of Detroit…

“We on, tryna be better than everybody that’s better than everybody; Rep Detroit, everybody, Detroit versus everybody.” 

…but also lays it down to say D-town is mayor-less. I can anticipate this album so much more now. But what most fans can’t seem to shake is how Kendrick Lamar, aggressively, gritty, and straight to the point proves a rivalry between fellow rappers.

“I’m usually homeboys with the same niggas i’m rhymin with/ But this is hip-hop and them niggas 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 niggas/ Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you niggass/ They don’t wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you niggas,”

And further stated that he was the “King of New York”, although we all know he’s from Compton, Cali. Just keep listening guys, it might be some hidden stuff behind that claim if you dissect it a ‘lil bit. He’s “trying to murder” all of the big name rappers and lists himself with Eminem, Jay Z, Nas and Andre 3000 as the best MCs of all-time.  Several rappers has since responded indirectly to K. Lamar’s rap. This is how Pusha T responded:

And with Fabolous saying:

Big Sean took to Twitter + 4 million followers to talk about this “no radio shit” track. “Control” which is his latest single and a whopping 7 minutes long, didn’t make it on the list of tracks for his sophomore album, Hall Of Fame that’s now available for pre-order.

So who will be the first to respond to the call-outs?

Big Sean is expected to release his newest album, Hall Of Fame on August 27th. Pre-order is available here.
