Slaughterhouse’s Joe Budden is the latest hip-hop artist to drop bars to Big Sean‘s “Control” anthem in light of the onslaught of Kendrick Lamar responses.
Although initially shelved and not expected to drop, a low quality version of Budden’s “Control” remix has found its way onto the ‘net.
Following the response from his Slaughterhouse brother Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden is the latest to have his response to Kendrick Lamar’s verse on Big Sean’s “Control (HOF)” verse added to the ever growing list… well kinda. Although Budden recorded a response he previously stated that he wouldn’t release it, but during a Ustream chat the track in question was played, and as it is in the world of the interwebs, someone recorded it and here it is for your listening pleasure (if you can take the bad quality recording). Now I hope and pray we get to hear a full CDQ version of this, as in my opinion this is the best and most balanced response to the K. Dot verse so far (from what I could actually hear).

Earlier this week, Joey hinted at something stirring up in the form of a response track earlier in the day.
“A Cali n*gga just said he’s the King of NY & u n*ggas so f*cking worried about your relationships, y’all make me sick.,” Budden tweeted August 13.
“@kendricklamar u my nigga 4 life bro…. But u gon learn today.” (Joe Budden’s Twitter)
Budden also found himself engaged in a brief war of words over Lamar’s track with The LOX’s Styles P.
The heat from Kendrick Lamar’s verse on “Control” has spilled over into Twitter beef between Styles P and Joe Budden. The NY rappers started taking shots at each other on Twitter after K. Dot referred to himself as the “King of NY.” Styles first said that the people called out by Kendrick should have responded by today at noon. This prompted Joe to tell Styles that he should have been one to respond. “@therealstylesp he called out everybody. U included.” The update by Joe was later removed. Styles then went in on Joe, calling him an Internet celebrity. “1st and foremost I have never acknowledged any kings but biggie ny or not ny 2nd of all don’t play with me I f— sh– up!” adding,” lyrically and physically so chill and save your Internet bullsh– 4 the next ninja.” Styles then claimed that he and Joe aren’t even friends, so he’d prefer if Joe not @Reply him on Twitter at all. “Just don’t @ me talking like we folk if we ain’t!” he wrote.

On the track, K. Dot does not hold back his lyrical wrath with dicey lines aimed a specific artists’ heads.
Big Sean, 25, took to Twitter to release his latest single, “Control” to his over 4 million Twitter followers, which features 26-year-old rapper Kendrick Lamar. “I’m usually homeboys with the same n****s i’m rhymin wit/But this is hip hop and them n****s should know what time it is/And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Wale, Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Big Sean, Jay Electron’, Tyler, Mac Miller/I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you n****s/Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you n****s.” He also has a verse that says: “I’m Machiavelli’s offspring, I’m the king of New York/King of the Coast, one hand, I juggle them both.” (Hollywood Life)
