J Cole Discusses
This post includes only a very short bit on Kendrick Lamar’s control verse yet describes a great perspective on it. The author Andy B., an interviewer for the website, discusses an interview with J Cole, the piece focuses on differing aspects of J Cole’s life and rap career. When questioned what he thought of the Control call out he answered; “That’s rap, man. That’s rap music. That’s a part of the game. It’s natural. It’s fine”. This speaks to a great point on the affects of differing rappers in the game. This article was released roughly a month after the album was released, showing the immediate affects of the verse.
