Janet+Jackson+-+Control+-+12"+RECORD_MAXI+SINGLE-421458Before I let Kendrick finish, I need to point out that Janet Jackson’s “Control” remains the best “Control” of all-time. Joy Division probably is hanging tough at number two. For the latest episode of Shots Fired, the only hip-hop podcast inspired by a Chris Brown and Tank song, we welcomed back BEeFF. If you don’t know, the West LA rap due, the archives will steer you right. The topics for this week include (obviously) the “Control verse,” the responses, and it’s potential impact on hip-hop. We talk Doris and Trap Lord. I talk about how I wanted to give a “Fuck Your Dreams” speech at a high school career day. Nocando regales me with stories of Low End Theory Europe. And all sorts of random bullshit.

BEeFF’s dropping new songs and videos every Wednesday for the next two months. The first is below the jump, along with the episode. They also tell a story about going to Chin Chin with Noreaga and play their tribute to Craig Sager, which is as tropically colorful as you would imagine.
