Kendrick On ‘Control’ Controversy: Maybe I’ll ‘Dumb Down’ My Lyrics Now

K-Dot finally breaks silence weeks after fiery bars provoked unprecedented response from NY rappers and the hip-hop community.

With his controversial “Control” verse, Kendrick Lamar challenged his rap peers to get better. So it’s ironic that after the fallout from his fiery bars on the Big Sean track, K-Dot now feels like he may have to tone down his complex lyrics.

“It made me go back here and made me feel that I probably need to dumb down my lyrics nowadays, for people to take it way out of context the way they did,” the Top Dawg MC said during an interview with Hot 97 radio personality Peter Rosenberg, which aired on Thursday morning (August 29).
