Drake: Responds to Kendrick Lamar snub in ‘Control Verse’
The moment that fans have been waiting for has finally come… Drake responds to the Kendrick Lamar’s snub in ‘Control‘.
In a recent interview with Billboard Magazine Drake took the time out to acknowledge that he heard the verse. When asked what were his initial reactions he said. “I went about my day, went and got dinner and kept it moving. I didn’t really have anything to say about it.”
The rapper seemed to remain unbothered by the snub and thought “it just sounded like an ambitious thought. That’s all it was.”
The rapper continued on to tell Billboard Mag that “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.”
People can debate all day long about who is the best and why. But in all honesty Drake has the stats to back up these strong words, of advisement to Kendrick.
After all his Album ‘Take Care’ has produced double the amount of sales ‘m.A.A.d city‘ has produced.
And actually, in the first week ‘Take Care‘ was released it sold 600,000+ copies well over half of what Kendrick‘s recent album has sold to date.
One argument that a lot of hip hop heads like to make is that, Drake‘s been out longer. And has already released two albums.
When in reality ‘m.A.A.d city‘ is Kendrick‘s sophomore album, his previous being ‘Section 80‘. Meaning, he is also a sophomore in the game, and has had time to establish a name for himself , as has Drake.
So, that argument doesn’t really work. But hey, its all hip hop and things are hardly ever taken personally. Being that the genre was built upon having beef, it all good fun.
