Drake has finally shared his feelings about Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse.
For the longest time, it seemed like no one with a direct connection to Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse had any interest in speaking on it. Though it seems that Kendrick himself breaking his silence on the bars earlier this week may have opened the floodgates, as now Drake has shared his feelings on the track in an interview with Billboard.
Drizzy revealed that he felt fairly apathetic about the verse on first listen. âI wentÂ about myÂ day, went and got dinner and kept itÂ moving,â he said of his initial reaction.
âI didnât really have anything to say about it,â he continued. âIt just sounded like an ambitious thought to me. Thatâs all it was. I know good and well that Kendrickâs not murdering me, at all, in any platform. So when that dayÂ presentsÂ itself, I guess we can revisit the topic.â
The OVO rapper also shared a few thoughts on his new album Nothing Was The Same, which he said would be more confident than his previous project.
âThereâs a lot less sort of ambient ballad moments on this albumÂ where IâmÂ searchingÂ or longing for something,â he said of NWTS. âThat sentiment is gone. Now Iâm just kind of like, âYou know, Iâm 26, I donât know what the fuck else I could be doing better than this. I feel incredible about how Iâm able to support my family andÂ friendsÂ and how supportive my family andÂ friendsÂ have been of me.ââ
