Joell Ortiz was one of the first to offer up a retaliation track but now Lupe Fiasco, Los and more also have something to say. Check out a list of all the notable responses to Kendrick’s verse thus far, and check back for updates.

Papoose: “Control (freestyle)”
Papoose admitted that Kendrick helped facilitate his Summer Jam stage crash a few months ago, but that didn’t stop him from throwing lethal darts on his response to K. Dot’s “Control” verse, rapping, “Kendrick, Kanye and Drake they act feminine/ Wear a lot of clothes you usually see women in” and not to mention, “You only blew up ’cause you contribute to the feminization of the black man.”
