Numbers never lie!

After Kendrick Lamar‘s “Control” verse raised some eyebrows in the hip-hop world, it definitely had an effect on his Twitter account as well.

Following his verse, K.Dot added over 208,000 new followers in the week following the song’s release. Billboard reported that was an exponential 510 percent increase on the social networking site. It also helped him facilitate 88,000 new Facebook fans, as well as a substantial amount of views on his Wikipedia page.

Along with that, the gig-tracking website Songkick revealed that the Compton rapper has played for the most time of any artist on festival stages this year, performing for a total of 2,760 minutes or an estimated 46 hours.

Talk about out of “control!”
