There’s no doubt Kendrick Lamar set the hip-hop game ablaze last week with his controversial references in his verse on Big Sean’s “Control,” now legendary hip-hop artist Nas has spoken out on the Compton native’s claim of crowning himself the king of New York.
During an interview with Hot 97’s Miss Info, the Queensbridge, New York MC commented on the verse.
“Wow, my reaction is wow. I love hip-hop right now…Certain fans like certain eras of rap, certain fans are not up on certain eras, so they don’t really remember all of them. This is what hip-hop is all about. You gotta ask [Kendrick what he meant]. I’m a listener,” he said.
Nas also hinted that he had a new album in the works. Check out the rest of the interview here.
