The Best Twitter Reactions To Kendrick Lamar's 'Control' Verse
 

Not since Nicki Minaj's guest verse on Kanye West's 'Monster' has an artist been so extravagantly upstaged as Big Sean by Kendrick Lamar in today's 'Control'. K-Dot, from Compton, California, uses the track as a platform to audaciously lay it down and proclaim himself King Of New York, 'juggling' both coasts. He calls out a bunch of hip-hop's big guns - Drake, J. Cole, Tyler, The Creator, A$AP Rocky - baiting them to raise their game.

Twitter is in a neurotic frenzy, like a playing field at team-picking time. Certain names are absent - Joey Bada$$, Danny Brown, Action Bronson. Bada$$ tweeted 'NY yall got me?', but that didn't go down very well so he tracked it back. Even hip-hop heavyweights P Diddy, Talib Kweli and Joe Budden have weighed in. It's a beast of a verse and here are some of the funniest reactions.
