Kendrick Lamar has decided not to keep his mouth closed about a recent Drake interview where he took some jabs at K.Dot’s “Control” verse.
After talk around the internet, a teaser of Kendrick’s BET cypher has popped up online. The clip seems like it is directed straight for Drake.
The 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards were taped in Atlanta last weekend, and will air on the network in two weeks. One of the most talked about moments during the annual show came from the always entertaining cyphers. TDE shook things up with a lineup of Jay Rock, ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, newest signeeIsaiah Rashad, and Kendrick Lamar. With his “Control” verse still a hot topic months later, Kendrick used his camera time to cleverly send a jab at Drake. Over Mobb Deep’s “Shook Ones Part. II,” Kendrick raps from a spectators angle using Drizzy’s Nothing Was the Same album title as a base for his verbal attack. “Yeah…and nothing’s been the same since they dropped “Control”/ And tucked a sensitive rapper back in his Pajama Clothes/ Ha-ha jokes on you, high-five…..I’m bulletproof/ Your sh*ts a never penetrate, pin the tail on the donkey boy you been a fake….” Catch the full cypher during the 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards when it airs on Tuesday, October 15 at 8 p.m. EST.

Drake was recently interviewed and he expressed how he felt about Kendrick’s remarks on his “Control” verse.
“That ['Control'] verse was a moment to talk about. Are you listening to it now, though?,” he asked, hushing all 850 attendees at NYU’s Skirball Center, including Wilson. Drake continued: “He didn’t come in there on some wild, ‘I’m in New York, fuck everybody.’ I almost wish he had come in there on that shit because I kind of lost a little bit of respect for the sentiment of the verse,” Drake said. “If it’s really ‘fuck everybody’ then it needs to be ‘fuck everybody’. It can’t just be halfway.” (Miss Info TV)
