Phil Jackson Explains His Response To Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Control’ Verse (Video)

When Kendrick Lamar released that fireball verse off Big Sean’s “Control,” it wasn’t just rappers who were quick to react. After getting name-dropped in the song, legendary retired NBA coach Phil Jackson also felt some type of way. “@kendricklamar it’s okay to be cocky and sure, but we all need somebody to lean on. Let’s just call it mentoring,” Jax wrote in regards to KDot’s aggressive line: “Who the f%# y’all thought it’s supposed to be?/If Phil Jackson came back, still no coachin’ me.” In a sit-down interview on the Seth Davis show, the 13-time NBA champion revealed that it was his 539,000+ followers on Twitter that pushed him to respond. It’s deeper than rap.
