Drake Reacts to Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Control’ Verse

Another rapper reacting to Kendrick Lamar‘s verse on Big Sean‘s ‘Control?’ We know, it got a bit out of control, but at least this time it’s someone who was mentioned on the track.

In case the above photo didn’t give it away, the rapper in question is Drake. He was among a grab-bag of contemporaries like A$AP Rocky, J. Cole, and Pusha T named by Lamar in his frenzy-inducing bars.

And in an interview with Billboard, Drizzy was asked about his thoughts on the verse and how it impacted him, if at all. Apparently the Toronto native wasn’t really shook, at all, because he said he went about his day, grabbed dinner, “and kept it moving.” He went on to say:

“I didn’t really have anything to say about it.. 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.”

While some might interpret that as Drizzy firing shots or whatever, that’s simply not the case. All he’s doing is bringing that same competitive vibe that Lamar was going for with his verse.

You can read the rest of the interview at Billboard. Drake’s new album, ‘Nothing Was The Same,’ drops Sept. 24.
