Kendrick Lamar (Finally) Talks ‘Control’ Verse

Kendrick Lamar put the entire block on watch with his fiery “Control” verse. Now the Compton kid speaks on the bars that told cats to step their game up.

“Honestly I didn’t know it would be so much speculation—I just wanted to rap,” he told Power 106.

K.Dot also addressed the ruckus-starting “King of New York” line, saying that only the real rulers of East Coast rap understood it.

“I think that’s a case where I maybe had to dumb down my lyrics just a little bit,” he continues. “The irony of that line is that the people that actually understood it and got it was the actual kings of New York. We’ve been down with them this past week, and them understanding that it’s not about actually being the King of whatever coast, it’s about leading the market as great as Biggie as great as Pac.”

Stay tuned for the full interview tomorrow morning.
