24 hours after Big Sean released “Control” featuring Kendrick Lamar and Jay Electronica the internet is still buzzing about K.Dot‘s powerful verse aimed at nearly everybody in your current top 10. During a sit down with Mikey Fresh, Big Sean opened up about the track Kendrick Lamar washed him and Jay Elec on, saying that the song is great for Hip Hop and he knew that before releasing it, and Sean also revealed that he did not rewrite his verse after hearing Kendrick‘s, or anything of that nature.
“I knew what it was for the culture of hip-hop. You see how excited people are, and I wanted to do that for music—make that play happen. It gave me like the feeling of how hip-hop was. How it used to be. When I heard that verse I wasn’t about to go back and change my verse—that’s cheating. That ain’t the way of an O.G. That ain’t how G’s move. I wanted to [release the song] for the culture of hip-hop as opposed to myself.”
“I ain’t no hoe ass ni**a like that to hear a verse like that and be like ‘I gotta go back and [rewrite] my shit, I gotta go protect myself.’ Nah, it is what it is. I’m a good ass rapper. I just want people to remember I had the song, I knew what it was. No, I didn’t change my verse because I’m not a h** ass ni**a. I’m a real ass ni**a from Detroit. I rep for everything that I do. I knew what it was going to do for hip-hop. I knew what it was going to do for the culture. This is the most exciting rap song to drop this year this year. Period.”
