Big Sean released a new 7-minute track last night that features a Kendrick Lamar verse that sent Twitter a flutter. The rap by one of the hottest MCs in the game right now drew comments from some of today’s best NBA players like Kevin Durant and LeBron James.
This is real hip hop at his best! @kendricklamar boxed em into a corner. We going crazy over here people!!

The song, called “Control,” was supposed to be on Big Sean’s upcoming album “Hall of Fame” but he couldn’t get it cleared because of the sample in the song. With the beat courtesy of NO I.D., the song also features a verse by Jay Electronica.
In his rap, Kendrick takes aim at many of today’s hot MCs such as A$AP Rocky, Drake, Mac Miller and more that he is competing with. His message? It’s all a competition, and he’s going to win with all due respect. Trust me, I make it sound A LOT tamer than how Kendrick spits it.
LeBron said it right. “We going crazy over here people!!” though might I add “!!!!”
