KiD CuDi Reacts to Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” Verse
This past Monday Big Sean released "Control," a leftover song from Hall of Fame, which featured both Kendrick Lamar and Jay Electronica. Kendrick Lamar's verse sent shockwaves through not only the hip hop community, but pop culture as a whole, as Lamar called out various of rappers along with crowing himself the King of New York.
While a handful of rappers have responded both on wax and Twitter, past collaborator KiD CuDi released his own much needed level-headed response.
"People keep asking me how I feel about Kendricks verse on Big Seans jams. It was dope! Ur suppose to want to bite the heads of ur opponents. Hip Hop aint about hugs and high fives. I personally don't think anyone should have responded. Niggaz need to put that energy into makin a classic album and responding that way. Id feel this way had he mentioned me or not. Cuz at the end of the day Kendrick showed love, was polite and really genuine when we worked. And thats what matters. Every rapper should want to murder other rappers. Its a joke otherwise. Im just happy i lost the "MOST EMO RAPPER AWARD" recently ha. To everyone who felt some type of way by Kendricks verse ha. Its rap. niggaz aint saving lives or feeding the hungry. who caresses. Ok so those are my thoughts."
