A$AP Rocky Responds To Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” Verse
Someone Kendrick Lamar actually mentioned in his “Control” verse is finally speaking out about the chess move that has had the hip-hop world buzzing for a week. A$AP Rocky addressed his shout-out in a recent interview with Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex.
“The n*gga didn’t say nothing about nobody mother, he ain’t want problems,” the rapper explained. “He said these is my n*ggas and I’m letting ya’ll know it’s competition. What’s the problem?”
A$AP also admits a lot of rappers who were offended, people like Lupe Fiasco and Papoose, are just mad because they weren’t noted in Kendrick’s verse. “It’s n*ggas pissed off just because they wasn’t mentioned. I’m not justifying shit, rap is rap,” Rocky says. Several rappers have released diss tracks aimed at Kendrick, but not A$AP, Drake, Meek Mill, J. Cole or any of the other rapper’s Kendrick mentioned on the track.
That being said, A$AP did exception with Kendrick’s line about being the “King of New York. “I got a crib in L.A. I’m doing the same venues, if not bigger venues. I don’t feel no type of way,” Rocky says. “I’m not going say I’m the king of L.A. I could, at least I live there.”
He has a point.
