We all can admit that Kendrick Lamar shook the game up with his verse on Big Sean’s “Control” record. Drake just won’t aknowledge this moment, claiming K Dot’s verse was only relevant for 10 days. Drake sat down with Angie Martinez to speak his mind and how he really feels about the verse:
It just wasn’t real to me. I saw him after that and it was just love, so was that real or was it just for the people? At the same time it’s like, let it be real ’cause those were harsh words. You can’t just say that and then see me like, ‘Hey man, what’s up?,’ pretending like nothing ever happened. That’s not real. To me, that’s not the nature of battling. There’s passion behind it. There’s anger behind it. I personally enjoy making great music and bodies of work over being the talk of Twitter for five days.
t was unexpected. In working your way up and sort of building relationships, I wouldn’t expect you to throw all the relationships out the door for the sakof being the talk of the Internet for 10 days. People don’t even care about it anymore. Now, especially this week, they’re moving on. I don’t know if it was worth it. There’s a lot of people that were mentioned that I feel like can’t really go back and f–k with that guy.[…] I think the verse was great.
Yeah…and nothing’s been the same since they dropped “Control”
And tucked a sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes
Ha-ha jokes on you, high-five,I’m bulletproof
Your s–ts a never penetrate
pin the tail on the donkey
boy you been a fake….
