Songs Responding to Kendrick Lamar's "Control" Verse

Kendrick Lamar name checked his competition on Big Sean's single "Control" last year, and had nearly every MC, unsigned and signed, riled up to respond to his plea for MCs to step their game up.

Better late than never, Mac Miller dropped his new mixtape, Faces, on Sunday and had a few bars for Kendrick on the track "Friends." Surprisingly, K. Dot's TDE homey ScHoolboy Q switches sides and assists Mac on the hook.

All in fun, Mac spits, "In this Game of Thrones, it is known/I got the 4G, L-T-E connection boards/No 'Control,' f--k Ken Lamar (F--k you Kendrick!)"

While Mac took it in jest, the song did have a few rappers caught up in their feelings via Twitter and on tracks. Read on to see who said what.
