Drake also says Kendrick Lamar went halfway with his verse on Big Sean's "Control."
Drake has spoken about Kendrick Lamar's verse on Big Sean's "Control." Drake addressed the matter during an interview for CRWN with Elliott Wilson in New York University's Skirball Center.
“That ['Control'] verse was a moment to talk about," Drake said, as reported by Miss Info and Vibe. "Are you listening to it now, though?”
Drake, who said it was "all love" when he saw Lamar days later, also explained why he lost respect for "the sentiments" behind Kendrick Lamar's verse on "Control."
"He didn’t come in there on some wild, ‘I’m in New York, fuck everybody.’ I almost wish he had come in there on that shit because I kind of lost a little bit of respect for the sentiment of the verse,” Drake said. “If it’s really ‘fuck everybody’ then it needs to be ‘fuck everybody’. It can’t just be halfway.”
Drake also addressed the Kendrick Lamar verse in a recent interview with Billboard.
"I didn't really have anything to say about it," Drake said. "It just sounded like an ambitious thought to me...I know good and well that Kendrick's not murdering me, at all, in any platform...When that day presents itself, I guess we can revisit the topic."
The CRWN interview, filmed over the weekend, has not aired. Part 1 of the CRWN interview series presented by Myspace will air on myspace.com Wednesday, September 25. It will air in 3 parts. Past CRWN interviews were done with J. Cole and Macklemore.
