Drake Weighs in on ‘Control’: ‘Kendrick’s Not Murdering Me at All’
In a new interview with Billboard, Drizzy brushes off the Compton MC’s verse and his boasts of being the best rapper. “I didn’t really have anything to say about it,” the 26-year-old OVO Sound leader shares. “It just sounded like an ambitious thought to me. That’s all it was. I know good and well that Kendrick’s not murdering me, at all, in any platform. So when that day presents itself, I guess we can revisit the topic.”
The “murdering” line he’s referring to comes from Lamar’s verse on Big Sean‘s ‘Control,’ where he calls out Drake and a bevy of other popular rhymers. “I’m usually homeboys with the same n—-s I’m rhymin’ with / But this is hip-hop and them n—-s should know what time it is / And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Wale / Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake / Big Sean, Jay Electron‘, Tyler, Mac Miller / I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you n—-s,” the ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city’ creator raps.
Will Kendrick Lamar respond to Drake’s statements? Only time will tell.
The latter is all smiles on the Billboard cover as he preps for the release of his third album, ‘Nothing Was the Same,’ due Sept. 24.
