Looks like Kendrick has some thank you notes to write, specifically to all the rappers who gave him free press in the last week over his monumental "Control" verse. Since the release of the Big Sean and Jay Electronica track that Lamar guested on, his debut release "good kid, m.A.A.d. city," released almost a year ago now, jumped from #52 on the Billboard charts back into the Top 40. This no doubt has everything to do with all the hype surrounded the aforementioned earth-shattering verse. This also boosted the album past the 1 million mark, making it a certified platinum album.
As this writer predicted, based on the expert analysis of Young Guru, Kendrick indeed wins any of these "feuds" he's gotten himself into by default. The more rappers that continue to call him out are only diverting attention away from them and eating out of his palm.
The controversy doesn't seem to be letting up either. Cassidy released another freestyle, this time over Jay Z's "Picasso Baby", referencing Lamar. Raekwon also spoke to itsbizkit.com about his claim to the King of New York throne, which Rae doesn't take seriously (as no one should) and calls himself a fan of the young troublemaker. In other words, keep talking guys, you're only gonna help him sell records.
