A$AP Mob React to Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Control’ Verse on Hot 97


To celebrate today’s release of his debut album, ‘Trap Lord,’ A$AP Ferg and the whole A$AP Mob invaded Funkmaster Flex‘s show on Hot 97 last night (Aug. 19) to talk about hip-hop’s hottest topic: Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Control’ verse.

Ferg gave his quick reaction to K. Dot’s “King of New York” claim in a recent interview with GQ saying, “What’s a King to a Lord?”. But here, A$AP Rocky, who was one of the few actually called-out on the track, finally shared his thoughts on Kendrick’s controversial line.

That King of New York s–t? You smoking crack. Like, you crazy.

Despite this, Rocky says him and his crew don’t feel some type of way (word to Rich Homie Quan) about an L.A. rapper claiming the New York crown. He goes onto praise Kendrick as one of the “most talented of our generation” and says he believes hip-hop needs a moment like this.
