Drake was one of the artists that Kendrick mentioned in his infamous ‘Control’ verse and while some rappers were busy recording their “responses”, Drizzy tells Billboard that he “went about my day, went and got dinner and kept it moving.” Well, that seems very Drizzy like. He also has to say the following about the situation.
“I didn’t really have anything to say about it,” Drake says of the verse, which has so far inspired responses from A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$, former Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson and too many others to count. “It just sounded like an ambitious thought to me. That’s all it was. I know good and well that Kendrick’s not murdering me, at all, in any platform. So when that day presents itself, I guess we can revisit the topic.”
