Drake Says That Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” Verse Wasn’t The F*** Everybody Song It Could Have Been
For the past year, Kendrick Lamar has given Drake a run for his money when it comes to being the top emcee in the industry. His recent verse on “Control” cemented Kendrick’s placement among the greats, as it has been called one of the most talked about verses in recent memory. Drake hasn’t really opened up much about the verse that took shots at all of the top emcees in a competitive manner, but finally spoke up during an interview for CRWN with Elliott Wilson in New York University’s Skirball Center.
“He didn’t come in there on some wild, ‘I’m in New York, fuck everybody.’ I almost wish he had come in there on that shit because I kind of lost a little bit of respect for the sentiment of the verse,” Drake said. “If it’s really ‘fuck everybody’ then it needs to be ‘fuck everybody’. It can’t just be halfway.”
It’s an interesting take where Drake feels that Kendrick didn’t go hard enough on the verse whereas everyone else took it extremely personal. Will Kendrick have anything to say?
