Remnants of that Kendrick Lamar "Control" verse just won't go away, will it?


Yesterday, in honor of Black Friday, Justin Timberlake dropped an official remix to his 20/20 Experience single, "TKO" which features J. Cole, A$AP Rocky and Pusha T. For starters, the track is fire and is guaranteed to get a repeated spin or two to digest the lyrical content, but the real treat was J. Cole, who used his storytelling tactics to give a reaction to Kendrick calling his name out in a lineup of rappers he'd murder earlier this year. In the verse, Cole raps:

Thought you was a down ass b-tch / Til I found that sh-t a couple days ago / I was home alone, next thing I know / That long a-s verse from a song called “Control” was on / The room got nearer, the tomb got clearer / That’s when I seen the sh-t playin’ on your phone / Girl, what is that? A ringtone? / Sh-t, not you too / Man that hype done got you too / Everybody and their momma gassed / Even my momma asked what I’mma do / Decisions, decisions / In case this is war, then I load up on all ammunition / If a n-gga want problems, my trigger’s on auto / I’ll make sure that nobody miss him

J. Cole goes on to remind us that he has a record deal and a college degree, two gold plaques, produced all his tracks, never leaned on Jay Z for anything and he's still a real G who hasn't gotten his teeth fixed, before ending the verse with:

Now you try to play me, b-tch?

You try to f-ckin' play me? I ought to knock your ass out

Well alright Cole!

Once you get past all of that, there's A$AP Rocky who addresses blogs and their commenters who say he doesn't like blacks (I'm guessing he's referencing the "dark skinned girls shouldn't wear red lipstick comment"), and Pusha T finishes out the song with some "Album Of the Year" and boo piece talk (Hey Ginny!).
