Big Sean debuted Control, a new song which features Jay Electronica and Kendrick Lamar, on Monday and one of the song's verses has several other rappers in the industry angry.

On the track, Lamar crowns himself one of the best rappers in the game along with with Jay Z, Nas, Eminem and Andre 3000. Although he's from the West Coast, he deems himself the "King of NY." The Compton native also called out several other hip-hop artists, including J. Cole, Wale, Pusha T, Meek Millz, ASAP Rocky, Big KRIT, Drake, Tyler the Creator and Mac Miller. Lamar even added Big Sean and Jay Electronica to the list.

Big Sean Hall of Fame Tracklist

"I'm trying to make sure your core fans never heard of you," he rapped about them. "They don't want to hear not one more noun or verb from you."

Some rappers, who were referenced in the song, responded to the 26-year-old.

"If I can't do no more nouns or verbs ima start comin with the wildest adjective bars that anyone has ever heard," Mac Miller tweeted on Tuesday.

"I hear u loud and clear," Pusha T also wrote to Lamar.

Even rappers who weren't mentioned in the song had a few things to say to Lamar.

"u my n---- 4 life bro.... But u gon learn today," Joe Budden tweeted the fellow rapper.

The Slaughterhouse member then wrote: "A Cali n---- just said he's the King of NY & u n----- so f---ing worried about your relationships, y'all make me sick."

Fabolous also subliminally tweeted about the situation and wrote, "Any studios open yet?"

"Y'all new NY rappers ready to stop rapping like y'all from down south yet?" Talib Kweli tweeted in regards to Lamar's line about his status in N.Y.

The controversial song was expected to appear on Big Sean's upcoming album, but due to a sampling clearance it won't be on Hall of Fame.
