Big Sean Still Thinks He Held His Own Against Kendrick Lamar On “Control”

Big Sean’s 2013 single “Control (HOF)” will always be remembered for the merciless guest verse in which Kendrick Lamar called out his peers by name and declared himself the king of New York. It was the most talked-about rap verse in recent memory, and it rendered Sean’s own contributions to the song an afterthought (not to mention Jay Electronica’s guest spot). Sean apparently doesn’t feel that way, though. As Rap-Up points out, the Detroit MC gave an interview to The Breakfast Club on New York radio station Power 105 this morning, and when they suggested Kendrick had the better verse, Sean replied: “No he didn’t. Stop it. Stop it. How long ago was that? What year is this? And I still don’t feel like I got washed anyway, nigga.” Yeah, Sean, and President Trump probably won the popular vote, too. Watch the full interview below, where you can also revisit “Control” and judge for yourself.
