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. “I went about my day, went and got dinner and kept it moving,” he said of his initial reaction.
“I didn’t really have anything to say about it,” he continued. “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.”
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.
“There’s a lot less sort of ambient ballad moments on this album where I’m searching or longing for something,” he said of NWTS. “That sentiment is gone. Now I’m just kind of like, ‘You know, I’m 26, I don’t know what the fuck else I could be doing better than this. I feel incredible about how I’m able to support my family and friends and how supportive my family and friends have been of me.’”
