One of the many MEMEs today during the Kendrick Lamar "Control" fallout
In case you've been away from technology the past 24 hours, Kendrick Lamar has gotten people talking about hip hop with his verse on Big Sean's "Control" also featuring Jay Electronica. And first off, isn't that great? For the casual person to be talking about hip hop because of the music, skill, and competition like this and NOT because of any of the negative things associated with hip hop? I'm loving it.
So here's a summation of Day 1 A.C. (After Control):
You know your verse is fire when Phil Jackson tweets at you in response...
Moving along, while hip hop fans were still recovering from Kendrick's verse on "Control" (yes, I know I'm feeding into the hype machine with that one, sorry), many were also wondering who would be the first to respond. Sure enough, it was Joell Ortiz with "Outta Control". He has a beef to pick about the "King of NY" line and the omission of Slaughterhouse in K. Dot's name-drops. Listen below.
All of the above actually overshadowed an excellent day of new releases. Don't sleep on Lupe Fiasco's new drop #DopeFrancis, No Malice & Pusha T "reuniting" for No Malice's upcoming album, the return of Kenna, Gucci Mane & Chief Keef, the "Higher" short film, the Treated Crew's take on "UOENO" (the link has the dope video), QuESt's new video and announcement, and a whole mess of new mixtapes from Young Jeezy, Jim Jones, and Trinidad James. Whoo! An easy day to miss new music, but I gotchu right here. Enjoy!
