Drake on Kendrick’s “Control” Verse

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Drake, who was one of the few MCs name-checked on the infamous “Control” verse, was asked about Kendrick’s aggressive content by Billboard during their talk for the new cover story:

“I didn’t really have anything to say about it,” Drake says of the verse, which has so far inspired responses from A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$, former Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson and too many others to count. “It just sounded like an ambitious thought to me. That’s all it was. I know good and well that Kendrick’s not murdering me, at all, in any platform. So when that day presents itself, I guess we can revisit the topic.”

Billboard just made this excerpt available a short while ago and I already see people on Twitter trying to amp that statement up into some kind of shot or something BUT THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HE’S SUPPOSED TO SAY just like what Kendrick said throughout his verse is EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS SUPPOSED TO SAY, BECAUSE THIS IS HIP-HOP YOU BIG DUMMIES.
