Everyone, calm down. Kendrick Lamar isn’t really sitting on a throne with the words “King of New York” emblazoned across it in big, crimson letters drawn from the blood of Big Apple rap gods. The Compton prince has indeed addressed the reaction to his scathing “Control (HOF)” verse. K. Dot called Power 106 FM to explain that his “king of New York” line is actually about leaving a mark.

“That’s the case where I have to dumb down my lyrics just a little bit,” says Mr. Lamar. “The irony of that line is that the people that understood and got it were the actual kings of New York — me actually sitting down with them this week and them understanding it’s not actually being the king of whatever culture, it’s about being as great as Biggie and Pac.”
