Last night, Kendrck Lamar had arguably the most talked about verse of the year with his lyrical massacre of Big Sean’s“Control” release last night. It’s sad that we got a rare Jay Electronica verse that was dope and even sadder that the track won’t be appearing on Sean’s album, but “Hall Of Fame” got a good boost just from the track last night. Some of the NY’ers took offense to Kendrick’s claims that he was the new K.O.N.Y. being a Compton native, as Joell Ortiz has been the first rapper to respond with a freestyle.
