Did you listen to Big Sean's new song "Control (HOF)" last night? Probably. So you must have heard Kendrick Lamar spit a verse that has all your favorite rappers talking.

It's an incredible effort. Full of fire and brio, rapping in a gruff, angry bark, the Californian star claims to be the "King of New York" and mentions a lot of his fellow rappers by name:

"'Bout who's the best MC?
Kendrick, Jigga and Nas
Eminem, Andre 3000, the rest of y'all
New niggas just new niggas, don't get involved
And I ain't rockin no more designer shit
White Ts and Nike Cortez, this is red Corvettes anonymous
I'm usually homeboys with the same niggas I'm rhymin' wit
But this is hip-hop and them niggas should know what time it is
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale, Pusha T, Meek Millz,
A$AP Rocky, Drake, Big Sean, Jay Electron', Tyler, Mac Miller
I got love for you all but I'm tryna murder you niggas
Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas
They dont wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you niggas
What is competition? I'm tryna raise the bar high..."

Of course, Twitter went crazy. Everyone from Fabolous to Tyga tweeted about wanting to get in the studio immediately in response. Here is Twitter Reacts to Kendrick Lamar's Verse on "Control (HOF)."
