Big Sean chopped it up with VIBE and discussed his recently released track “Control” featuring Kendrick Lamar, and Jay Electronica. Big Sean says he did this for the culture of Hip Hop.
“I knew what it was for the culture of hip-hop. 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.
When I heard that verse I wasn’t about to go back and change my verse that’s cheating. 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
I ain’t no hoe ass nigga like that to hear a verse like that and be like ‘I gotta go back and rewrite my shit, I gotta go protect myself.’ Nah, it is what it is. I’m a good ass rapper.
I just want people to remember I had the song, I knew what it was. No, I didn’t change my verse because I’m not a hoe ass niggaa. I’m a real ass nigga from Detroit. I rep for everything that I do. I knew what it was going to do for hip-hop. I knew what it was going to do for the culture. This is the most exciting rap song to drop this year this year. Period. “
