Every Tom, Dick, and Harry in Hip-Hop has weighed in on Kendrick Lamar‘s “Control” verse, and now it’s 50 Cent‘s turn.

Kendrick Lamar stopped through E!’s Chelsea Lately talk show and of course the topic of his verse on Big Sean’s “Control” came up. As he has been saying lately, the Compton rapper’s fiery verse was all about the spirit of competition.

Talking heads who’ve questioned Kendrick Lamar‘s intentions in spitting his “Control” verse can finally quit the speculation. Following a call-in to Power 106’s Big Boy’s Neighborhood, the Compton rapper phoned HOT 97’s Peter Rosenberg to speak in depth about his now infamous bars.

At this point, every Tom, Dick, and Harry in Hip-Hop has commented on Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse. It was only right that a legend like Raekwon entered the forum.
