Last night (August 12), Big Sean debuted the Kendrick Lamar, Jay Electronica- assisted, "Control," with Hot 97's Funk Flex. The No I.D.-produced cut didn't make it onto his upcoming "Hall of Fame" album due to sampling clearance. But it wasn't the release that took the 'net by surprise; it was Kendrick's featured verse.



"I'm usually homeboys with the same ni--as I’m rhyming' with/ But this is hip-hop and them ni--as should know what time it is./ And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big K.R.I.T, Wale, Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Big Sean, Jay Electron, Tyler, Mac Miller/ I got love for you all, but I’m tryin' murder you ni--as/ Tryin' to make sure your core fans never heard of you ni--as/ They don’t wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you ni--as," K. Dot raps. "What is competition? I'm tryin' to raise the bar high. Who trying to jump and get it?"
