Eight Months Later, Who Had the Best “Control” Verse?

blame it on Shake April 18, 2014

Jay Electronica is currently in Detroit, at the tables, drinking Ciroc and utilizing the hotel’s internet with a barrage of Twitter updates.

After sharing a list of new artists he digs (Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, Ferg, Ab-Soul and Joey Bada$$ to name a few), his favorite Ab-Soul song (“Book of Soul”), saluting Miss Info on being one of the few “true journalists” in the game, giving NahRight and yours truly daps for staying true to ourselves and other 140-character updates, he then opened up the flood gates with a “ask me anything” Tweet.

Obviously fans flooded his timeline with questions on Act II‘s mysterious release date, but things got interesting when someone asked Jay to rank the verses on “Control.”

Although Kendrick’s verse obviously caused the most controversy, was it the best? Jay Elect doesn’t seem to think so. In his response, the New Orleans emcee put himself up top, with Sean following and Kendrick with the bronze.

Rather than make this a “ooohhhh Jay Elect is dissing Kendrick” post like I’m sure someone will, I just wanted to see where people’s heads were at. Eight months later, who has the best verse?
