Hall of Fame is the upcoming second album by 25 year old rapper Big Sean which will be released on August 27th through GOOD Music and Def Jam Recordings. Big Sean took to Twitter to release this seven minute, no chorus, raucous rap joint “Control”, featuring Kendrick Lamar and Jay Electronica. The song will not be on the album due to the sample not being cleared, but that’s good news as you can listen and download it right now.
While Big Sean delivers and Jay Electronica came out of the hole he was hiding in, Kendrick Lamar’s almost three minute verse is the highlight here, as he stakes his claim as rap’s best:
“I’m usually homeboys with the same n****s i’m rhymin wit/But this is hip hop and them n****s should know what time it is/And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Wale, Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Big Sean, Jay Electron‘, Tyler, Mac Miller/I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you n****s/Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you n****s.”
Shots have been fired. Reactions below the song.
