“He’s one of the greatest of all time” were the words r&b singer Jhene Aiko used to describe Kendrick Lamar while at Big Sean’s listening party in Hollywood this week. The singer was giving us her reaction to Kendrick’s verse on Big Sean’s “Control,” a verse that has the hip-hop world in a frenzy.
Moet Chandon held a private VIP listening party for Sean to celebrate the release of his sophomore album, Hall of Fame. The Detroit rapper talked about his album and the hard work he put into the project, but he couldn’t dodge the one question every one wanted to know: What was his reaction when he heard his name on Kendrick’s Verse?
“When I first heard it, it was like funny to me, cause I was like is he really gonna name drop, but it’s hip hop and it’s a sport.” This verse was just a simple reminder that hip-hop has been and always will be a competitive sport, so bring it on!
Sean was surrounded by good friends like Kevin Hart and Lance Gross, and of course, his girlfriend Naya Rivera at his album listening party. Stars on the red carpet also gave us their reactions to Kendrick’s verse. Check out what the celebs had to say below.
