(AllHipHop News) By now, everyone living above rocks has heard Kendrick Lamar’s murderous verse on Big Sean’s “Control” where he effectively tells the Hip Hop game they are beneath him.

These are the emotional and psychological effects Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse had on Hip Hop in 18 hours.

After bouts of arrogance, Lupe Fiasco began assuming the personality of a few of the MC’s Kendrick Lamar mentioned:
Then tweeted himself in a circle:
Then an OG came down to speak to the youngin’s:
ATTENTION M.C.’S: Complaining about @kendricklamar verse on twitter is Gossip. Getting in the studio trying to write a better one is Hip Hop

In the end, Kendrick Lamar’s force of nature verse on Big Sean’s “Control” caused personality disorders, loss of memory of local recording studios, hurt prides and so much more.
However, over 15 hours later and it hasn’t caused one response song.
