Deemed one of the most important hip-hop songs of the last decade by Rolling Stone, Big Sean‘s “Control” changed the world. Kendrick Lamar had a huge hand in making the track so noteworthy, calling out a number of high-profile rappers to challenge him and take the crown. The track arguably made him the favorite on Top Dawg Entertainment, cementing him as one of the best rappers in the world.
In the track, the Los Angeles rapper calls himself the King of New York, which did not sit well with a number of stars from the city. The track was so impactful that it is still causing rumors to break out today.

A story has been going around that J. Cole and Diddy got into a physical fight at a VMAs after-party over the “Control” verse. Apparently, Diddy was drunk and attempted to have some words with Kendrick Lamar over the “king of New York” claims. Things got ugly when Diddy allegedly tried to pour a drink on Kendrick, before J. Cole intervened and fought the legend himself.
According to J. Cole’s manager, none of that actually happened though.
Taking to Twitter, Ibrahim “Ib” Hamad debunked the rumors and said that the story is untrue.
“Yea thats def not what happened,” he said next to a bunch of laughing emojis. So, what did happen then? Inquiring minds are begging to find out.
