Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” Verse Made A Huge Impact On Mentioned Rappers’ Social Media Presences

kendrick-lamar-white-backgroundKendrick Lamar made huge waves the other day with his verse on Big Sean’s “Control“, and today we are still feeling the impact. Thanks to the good folks at BBE Booking Agency, the impact of the verse was measured and presented in a nifty little infographic. Of the artists mentioned by Kendrick, the agency gauges who made the biggest movers on social media, and who was left behind.

For the most part, the anchoring Jay Electronica felt the most love on social media from the verse. While his verse wasn’t anything special, I’m sure it ignited a curiosity from many listeners who might not have heard of him before. Surprisingly, Mac Miller also experienced a nice push from the track after being mentioned in Kendrick’s notorious verse.

    The chart says % change. It doesn’t mean he lost 22% of his likes, it just means he didn’t gain as many likes as he did the previous day. So to give you an example, if he had a gain of 200 new followers on Wednesday and only 5 new followers on Thursday. Thats a -97% change.

    The reason why Jay Electronica had such a big change in social media is because he barely had anybody talking about him beforehand. He’s not active on the internet, so something like this got people talking about him again

    Went back. And it still sounds like every other Jay Electronica verse…
