There is a lot of controversy stirring over Kendrick Lamar’s verse in Big Sean’s new track, “Control”. The collaborative track with Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar and Jay Electronic turned serious when Kendrick used the second verse to call out some of his competition like Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale, Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Big Sean, and others.
