And it’s HOT! This can largely be attributed to J.Cole, who is without a doubt the reason the song is as talked about as it is. While I have always been under the impression that Cole and Kendrick Lamar were good friends, his verse says otherwise.
“Thought you was a down ass bitch ’til I found that shit a couple days ago / I was home alone, next thing I know / That long as verse from a song called ‘Control’ was on / The room got nearer, the tomb got clearer / That’s when I seen the shit playin’ on your phone / Girl, what is that? A ringtone? / Shit, not you too / Man that hype done got you too? /
Everybody and their mama gassed / Even my mama asked what I’mma do // Decisions, decisions / In case this is war, then I load up on all ammunition / If a nigga want problems, my trigger’s on auto / I’ll make sure that nobody miss him /
Now pack up your shit, you don’t believe in me // I don’t need you, I got me, bitch / Same nigga moved to NYC, bitch / Got a record deal and a college degree, bitch // Two gold plaques, I produced all the tracks / And I never ever ever leave no Jay-Z, bitch / And after all that achievement / Real nigga never even went and got his teeth fixed / Now you try to play me, bitch? / I’ll knock your ass out…”
