“Big Sean – “Control (HOF) f. Kendrick Lamar & Jay Electronica

Damn shame this album won’t end up on the new Big Sean album, but the streets should eat this up and have leftovers! Big Sean and Jay Electronica have very impressive showings on “Control,” but Kendrick Lamar drops the atom bomb on every thing.

Listen…just listen to control.

Did Kendrick just drop the verse of the year?

  • EEEFAFA

    BARS ALL DAY!!!

  • LiddyBug86

    When is his verse? Damn I can only take so much of this other brotha! (I’m working on not using the N word). The beat was a distraction! So I will askjeeves for the lyrics.

    Wow wow…tough tough track, I love it, this is hop hop . This was so refreshing

    I’m a fan of Kendrick Lamar but he’s 0-2 on the mic when matched up with legends in my opinion. Jay-Z’s bars were better on ‘Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe (Remix)’ and 50 Cent’s bars were better on ‘We Up’. K Dot should of saved this for an Eminem track instead of wasting it on Big Sean and the B-Version of Nas.

    • TMCCoast

      jay-z bars were not even close on the remix and lets not get started on fif..

        If you don’t believe your ears the evidence is scattered all over online on sites with song lyrics. U want me to copy paste them? Lol.

      • TMCCoast

        im not one to argue opinions, i just know everywhere I’ve been Kendrick bodied both of them, Now you could copy and paste your shit and I can easily do the same, but a pissin contest is pointless. Right now a large part of the hip-hop community will tell you you’re incorrect.

        Plus fifty a legend? Let’s not play. He did his thing for what 3 and some change albums. He definitely made money doing so, and he ended JaRules career. Game is much more of a lyricist and emcee than him as is Llyod Banks. I’m lookin at this from not just a success point, I’m looking past the glitz and glam.

        We put all these cats in a room right now and make them spit like back in the day? It’s Jay or Kendrick coming out. Not fif.

      • $27177313

        No I won’t bother copy pasting bc this is just a Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, etc. conversation. There’s a reason 50 Cent is loved and hated by so many. He’s sounded off plenty and yes ended careers at times. U might as well call him the Black Mamba of this rap game. Jigga probably wouldn’t say shit these days but back in the 90’s I think he would of bodied Kendrick battling. Clearly he’s the #45 Michael of this rap shit. Clearly Eminem is wearing #23.

      • TMCCoast

        Nas is way closer to a Kobe than 50 will ever be. That’s not something you can argue…50 doesn’t belong in that realm. He makes some noise I’ll even give you maybe a Rondo. Not even close though lyrically to Jay or Nas.

      • $27177313

        Haha. Really Rondo? I’d say Kendrick is more like Rondo since he’s such a young cat just starting to win. I see where coming from with Nas since he Ethered Jay… But in general Nas is just a real nice guy. He doesn’t end careers as often as 50 Cent. Nas is more like Shaq haha. U clearly haven’t really followed 50 Cent, he’s got bars and no I won’t copy paste. Whoever says 50 Cent isn’t a legend probably was a big fan of someone’s career 50 diminished or ended.

  • Schooly B

    Gotdamnit!!! Whoa, the boy is straight beasting on this track. The last time I heard someone steal someones track so blatantly was Canibus on 4,3,2,1. Kendrick is straight killin. Nuff said.

  • jamy47

    Damn Kendrick why? you left them no mercy! You know he just started some shit right there.

    • $27177313

      Yep now we’ll see if the Good Kid really has the backbone to take responses if they come.

  • J.Erick

    Kendrick bodied this shyt.. Went fed on this bish!!!

  • Kevin Jones

    Im just in love with the direction of Hip Hop music right now from J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Meek Mill, Ace Hood, Machine Gun Kelly, and Big Sean

    • Matt Swan

      You mention Hip Hop music and then list Drake and Ace? You sure you didn’t want to include SB, Nikki, YMCMB, MMG(minus Wale) because Drake is not and never will be Hip Hop, Ace….not even close. I’m skeptical on the Mill being Hip Hop

      • vandyll

        You typed the words right out of my head. He started off right with Cole and Kendrick, I’ll even take ASAP but after that every name he mentioned fell over a jagged cliff.

      • main0

        So Drake isn’t hip hop according to you?? meek mill Dream catchers 2 wasn’t hip hop? . not trying to be argumentative, but i don’t understand your logic.. Drake is a product of kanye and andre 3000 are they considered hip hop?

      • Matt Swan

        What Drake started out being a basic copy of Ye, then look at his a$$ now. Hip Hop naw…Hip POP yup. I’m not feelin anyone from MMG except Wale, and that’s only because he’s on a whole different playing field than anyone else on the label as far as spittin bars. Drake copied one and used the other as an inspirational tool. Doesn’t make anyone Hip Hop. He should know he’s garbage when R Kelly does a remake of your song and KILLS IT. But I respect your view tho.

    • Southcidal

      Machine Gun Kelly? LOL!! I must be really sleeping on dude, because from what I heard he’s shiity. And Big Sean makes too many teenage girl records to be taken seriously.

  • Jeff Active Reynolds

    3:01 Kendrick’s verse

  • Matt Swan

    IMO listening to that verse from him, sounded like a mad Em. The flow and the metaphor use, seemed just like him. Good colabo tho

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      hes def has some influence from em

    • Judah Nazayar

      i thought the same thing…between pac and em flow

  • southside4lyfe

    Am I the only one that take Big Sean’s verses as a jokes. Maybe its his voice. Kendrick killed it though. This remix would be awesome with Em and Busta on it.

  • main0

    Its a verse to tell every hip hop artist to step up.. Every real hip hop artist will understand and come back with there own venom.. hopefully…

  • LuvinDaWorldWeInRightNow

    LYRICS R BACK !!!!! = HASHTAG RAP IS DEAD !!!!!…..LOL

  • Lyonel Rosemond

    What the hell’s going on here? is no one gonna say something about that king of NYC line???? first the fat boys break up now this??? new york stand up, we looking soft kid!!!

  • Wes Clark

    He should have went Last. That was a near impossible verse to follow and J Electro did NOT comply

  • Somwon Somadhi

    tight work….

  • Fatz Grizzy

    K Dot had the best verse but Big Sean went in too!

  • Angelo Benjamin

    Wow Kendrick Lamar just took This Rap game back to where it Started.
    These New Niggas Don’t Know bout True Hip Hop That’s why There Broken Hearted.
    when you spit real shit them fake rappers They all gonna hate.

    KL Has just reintroduced The world to Old School Hip Hop Battle Rap. So Just Take Notes. Better yet Check The Hip Hop History Books THIS IS WHAT HIP HOP WAS REALY ABOUT WHOS THE BADDEST RAPPER ON THE MIC!!!!!!!!!

  • OnlyFaDaReal

    Big Sean went in but Kendrick Lamar murdered it hands down!

  • CHECK IT: OUTTA CONTROL – IS THE GAME THAT MESSED UP THAT DUDES IN AWE WITH THIS DAME?? WHAT A SHAME! DUDES A LAME, WHATS HIS NAME? WHAT THEY SAYING? IS THERE ANOTHER VERSION I AIN’T HEARD THAT THEY PLAYING?? CUZ THAT VERSE AINT FLAMES . . . THERE MUST BE A REMIX OR A SEQUEL . . A KING SELF-PROCLAIMED??? WE DON’T BELIEVE YOU, YOU NEED MORE PEOPLE!!! ROOK STAY IN YOUR LANE, AND STOP BELIEVING ALL THE BS THAT YOUR YES-MEN FEED YOU . . . (IL4M, QUICK FUN SHTT – BRICKS!!!)

  • ONLY DOPE THING ABOUT THIS IS THAT HE CALLED PEOPLE OUT, AND IS GONNA JUMP START SOMETHING BUT THE VERSE IS ITSELF.. IS 5 OUT OF 10 AT BEST… AVERAGE.

    • j_pullia

      Thankl You!!! Niggas is so clingy like hoes. That verse was average to a great MC.

      • Glad we all haven’t fell for the BS. Dudes are fooled by the hard pronunciation and aggressive/speedy delivery but when you “listen” shtt is average . . .

  • j_pullia

    SHOCK VALUE!….speaking of Kendrick Lamar’s verse on Big Sean’s
    “CONTROL” Track. A hot verse it is. Kendrick’s a nice MC period. He’ll
    have to live down and live by what he chose to express and define
    himself as in this song. Though credit given for innovation and gaul,
    does a new rapper/MC with a new HIP-HOP music career in it’s infancy
    want to place this sort of pressure on himself? Yeah I guess it’s ok if
    the rappers/mc’s Kendrick name dropped on this track fall back and
    accept Kendrick’s touts of grandeur and in his own opinion placing
    himself lyrically above them. I myself believe he walked the fine line
    between competitively speaking on his mc piers and hating his mc
    competition. The pressure I believe comes when a talented mc like
    Kendrick publicly compares himself to the well rounded senior talent in
    the HIP-HOP mc game. So Kendrick thinks with just one cd, oh and a
    previous underground mixtape following as K.dot, a list of different
    features and a hot year in 2013 he’s now nice as NAS and JAY Z, above
    Em and Andre 3000? Your so hot your the self proclaimed king of NY and
    running both cost? Yeah, It’s just lyrics, and for Kendrick’s sake let’s
    hope so.

    Kendrick’s backed by some major HIP-HOP muscle (The one
    and only DRE) has had a great 1st run. My question is on your freshman
    run and with a limited body of work, Do you want to tout yourself as the
    best or king? Shooting almost your entire pier group of MC’s down in
    his MC rant, many like Kendrick have brought back the lyrical art of
    emceeing. And as a unit most of these guys Kendrick named represent the
    true new school of lyrical talent. Is Kendrick really nicer lyrically
    than Drake, Wale, J Cole, Jay Electronica, Tyler the Creator, Mack
    Miller Pusha T,? No. I’ma say hell NO! Not because of my opinion that’s
    anyone’s opinion and base on different peoples taste. The truth is
    Kendrick is truly the infant amongst the group of mc’s mentioned in his
    verses with maybe an exception to J Electronica as I am speaking in
    terms of Kendrick’s body of work. So Kendricks believes he’s running
    HIP-HOP and his piers while still in pampers with milk on his mouth.
    While still a newbie in the game.

    But what do babies do, cry.
    Babies want all of the attention not only cause they want it but because
    they need it. I think Kendrick meant well. I think he spoke what many
    if not all nice mc’s feel. In my opinion and in the name of pacing ones
    self and rap career Kendrick could have left some thoughts unsaid.
    Innovation, in my extensive knowledge of HIP-HOP and of all the rhyme
    battles and rant songs to take place in song. I’ve known of no really hot
    gifted mc to have to resort to this sort of approach to get his point
    across. That’s not all bad, I applaud Kendrick’s creativity but I think
    it may come with some serious draw backs. Unless Kendrick plans on
    retiring, He has to know that he’ll have to step his game up as well.
    Kendrick’s is not yet that well liked or well known to where people just
    buy and attend anything he put’s his name on. He’s just building a
    brand.

    I liken Kendrick’s approach to Canibus and his short
    HIP-HOP career, who like most hot mc’s of his day did the mixtape
    circuit and slaughtered his feature appearances starting I believe with
    The Lost Boys. Touted to be the next great thing he was caught up in
    label signing wars. He once appeared on I believe it was hot 97 with
    Nore and DMX and easily outshining them both with a freestyle rhyme
    where he stated he’d battle the entire universe or planet in
    alphabetical order. Oh yeah nice he was. Nice until he met LL.Cool J. A
    falling out over verses recorded for LL’s 4-3-2-1 track featuring
    Redman, Method, Canibus originally DMX and Master P. Lead to an official
    diss record from Canibus called 2nd Round K.O.

    On this record Canibus shinned with a larceny of ill lyrics that included a very
    disrespectful and personal reference to LL’s family. Yeah it’s all HIP-HOP
    we said. LL launched what I felt was a weak reply called Can-I-Bus
    though needed as this is LL we are talking about. I think many just saw
    and were amazed at the young mc’s heart to challenge a HIP-HOP legend.
    What later killed Canibus I felt was the inner industry politics and
    inner exposure of Canibus. Unlike Kendrick Canibus just did not really
    have his choice of promoting a career pushing single to his debut
    album.Yes, and just like that Canibus career was over. LL later made
    public and in song with the help of some other industry artist and power
    figures that he meticulously sabotaged Canibus career.

    I make this reference to say this, though in many ways Kendrick’s verse will be
    well received by the HIP-POP listening public. Kendrick must be careful
    that the blow back does not lead to premature career burn out. He sends
    shots at his piers though he may have meant well the fall out may be
    alienation and distance. Your the king of of both cost? Now every
    rapper/mc not mentioned wants to reply in song. Kendrick feels he’s the
    best, the king, the nicest. Your piers and the HIP-HOP world says prove
    it, for the rest of Kendrick’s career. All recording artist have to survive the sophomore jinx. Let’s see how it all plays out. Don’t let the SHOCKDRIVEN verse, the BIGHEADED approach that for all Kendricks good intentions becomes the pressure cooked paragraph that parks his career.

    • Matt Swan

      I agree and am waiting for his second and third actual lp’s to make some good noise before I give any kind of “king” of anything. He’s hot right now, just like 50 was, and he fell off hard on his second and follow ups. Too many one and done’s around lately.
