Video: Big Sean Breaks Down "Control" (Featuring Kendrick Lamar and Jay Electronica)

 
Big Sean's "Control" has literally taken over Hip-Hop for the past 24 hours thanks to Kendrick Lamar's verse. Our homie Micky Fresh sits down with the Detroit player to discuss everything we wanted to know about the track.

I knew what it was for the culture of hip-hop,” Big Sean tells VIBE exclusively. “You see how excited people are, and I wanted to do that for music—make that play happen. It gave me like the feeling of how hip-hop was. How it used to be.

Control was supposed to be on Hall of Fame, but due to sample clearance issues, Sean decided to give it out for free.

 
When I heard [Kendrick's] verse I wasn’t about to go back and change my verse—that’s cheating,” Big Sean tells VIBE. “That ain’t the way of an O.G. That ain’t how G’s move. I wanted to [release the song] for the culture of hip-hop as opposed to myself.

It’s hip-hop. It’s a sport. It should get back to being competitive if that’s what people want to do," says Sean.

Big Sean's album Hall of Fame drops August 27th. Preorder it on iTunes!
S/O to VIBE!
