Big Sean ft. Kendrick Lamar & Jay Electronica - Control (#HOF)

Posted 3 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
No I.D.

Big Sean is gearing up to release his new album, Hall of Fame, on August 27, so naturally the G.O.O.D Music signee is in a celebratory mood.  Instead of popping bottles before pre-sale numbers begin to flood in, however, the Motown native has decided to unleash an unreleased record that hit the cutting room floor. Unfortunately, due to sample clearance issues, the No I.D.-produced Control failed to make the final Hall of Fame tracklist.  Fortunately, the song is a seven minute Blitzkrieg featuring guest verses from Kendrick Lamar, who absolutely murders the track, and Jay Electronica, who has to follow Kendrick in third verse mop-up duty. Enough from me, listen, enjoy, tell a friend.
