Kendrick Lamar Takes “Control”

By Stephfon Guidry

vibe-kendrick-lamar-control-verse-lyricsBig Sean’s “Control” shoots lyrics like an automatic glock taking out the competition one line at a time. Big Sean follows this new Hip Hop trend of spitting lyrics without a catchy hook or auto tune. “Control” features Kendrick Lamar and Jay Electronica. Quickly becoming a beast in the rap world, Kendrick Lamar’s feature opens the ears and eyes of all his hip hop cohorts as he literally lists the Haves and Have Not’s…

I heard the barbershops spittin’ great debaAnnotatetes all the time

Bout who’s the best MC? Kendrick, Jigga and Nas

Eminem, Andre 3000, the rest of y’all

New niggas just new niggas, don’t get involved

And I ain’t rockin no more designer shit

White T’s and Nike Cortez, this is red Corvettes anonymous

I’m usually homeboys with the same niggas I’m rhymin’ wit

But this is hip-hop and them niggas should know what time it is

And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale

Pusha T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake

Hip hop is evolving and rappers are a thing of the past, the radio is no longer the goal the flow is standard. Kendrick Lamar’s verse draws a line in the lyrical sand to all those holding a mic to get back to the essence of rap and hip hop, Which Big Sean more than achieves this with controversial single “Control”. #KeepItCurrent and give it a listen.
