And round and round we go. Earlier this month, Drake played off the importance of Kendrick Lamar’s verse on “Control”, saying, “[Kendrick] is giving people moments. But are you listening to it now, at this point in time? Okay… It was real cool for a couple weeks. If I asked you, for example, how does that verse start?” He continued, “I know that verse had no malice behind it… If it’s ‘really fuck everybody’ then it needs to be ‘fuck everybody’. It can’t be halfway for the sake of the people,” before adding that he doesn’t consider Kendrick competition.
Kendrick appears to think otherwise, and has responded to Drake in a cypher to be aired during the BET Awards later this month. A snippet of the cypher has hit the web and includes these lines:
“And nothing’s been the same since they dropped ‘Control’/And tucked a sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes/Ha-ha, jokes on you.”
Nothing Was the Same is the title of Drake’s new album, the second fatest-selling album of any album released in 2013. Hopefully Kendrick will also make a funny about Drake’s sandwich.
The 2013 BET Awards air October 15th.
