Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Control’ Verse Had Big Sean ‘Cracking Up’

MC tells Vibe that he didn't change his verse after hearing Kendrick Lamar's because 'that ain't the way of an O.G.'

Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse forced a number of rappers into the studio after hearing it, but not Big Sean. The G.O.O.D. Music MC laid his vocals onto the fiery track first, and while many fans speculated that Sean switched his bars to match Kendrick’s fire, he says he did no such thing.

“I started the song, I laid my verse first. I sent it to Kendrick and Jay Elec too. And then Kendrick sent that verse back… So when I heard it I was kind of like cracking up,” Sean told on Tuesday night. “When I heard that verse I was like, ’Man I’m not about to go back and change my verse — that’s cheating.”
