Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar may have approached his verse on Big Sean’s “Control” like any of the other guest verses he’s appeared on, but his addition to the No I.D.-produced song morphed into something more than a standard guest feature. Despite receiving “all love” from New York heavyweights including Jay Z and Diddy, Kendrick further clarified his “king of New York” mention on “Control,” stating that he was merely trying to convey how “hungry” of an artist he is.Lastly, Kendrick offered his thoughts on the artists he feels had the best “Control” responses. Among them were Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, King Los, and Kevin Hart’s rap persona, Chocolate Drop. “I liked the [King] Los verse,” Kendrick revealed. “Joe Budden did this thing, Joell; a lot of people with different approaches…Joey had the facts in his verse, a few things that he felt. Papoose had the comical joint. Los was flipping his words and putting that spunk on it. I think he had the killer thing though. Yeah, Los killed it out of everybody. But the number one joint at the top of the list had to be Chocolate Drop.”
