In an interview with CRWN with Elliot in New York University’s Skirball Center, rapper and R&B singer Drake (real name Aubrey Graham), expressed his honest distaste for fellow entertainer Kendrick Lamar’s controversial verse in Big Sean’s “Control”.
The track released in August features Lamar name dropping all of his opponents in the rap industry, stating that he’s friendly with them all but isn’t interested in sharing first place in the rap game. In the verse, Lamar names off fellow rappers A$AP Rocky, Jay Electronica, J. Cole, Wale and plenty more–including Drake.
“That (Control) verse was a moment to talk about. Are you listening to it now though?” stated Drake to Miss Info and Vibe.
“He didn’t come in there on some wild, ‘I’m in New York, f*ck everybody.’ I almost wish he had come in there on that sht* because I kind of lost a little bit of respect for the sentiment of the verse,” said Drake.
“If If it’s really ‘f*ck everybody’ then it needs to be ‘f*ck everybody’. It can’t just be halfway.
Drake specified that it was “all love” with Lamar after the verse was released, but it didn’t quite sound that way in his recent interview with Billboard.
“I didn’t really have anything to say about it,” stated Drake. “It just sounded like an ambitious thought to me…I know good and well that Kendrick’s not murdering me, at all, in any platform…When that day presents itself, I guess we can revisit the topic.”
Although Lamar’s references weren’t intended to created malice, rappers Papoose, Meek Mill and Lupe Fiasco were not too pleased to hear what Lamar had to say. All three rappers released tracks, bashing the California rapper after the Control verse sparked feuds via internet.
Maybe Drake needs to “Control” his words a little better next time.
CRWN’s interview will air on myspace.com Wednesday, September 25.
