The Twitter world was buzzing Monday night about Kendrick Lamar's verse on Big Sean's new single "Control." You can listen to the song here (Warning: NSFW language).

Lamar's blasting of a number of rappers and crowning himself "King of New York" even got a response from LeBron James:

During the verse, Lamar mentions NBA coaching legend Phil Jackson (via Hollywood Life):

"If Phil Jackson came back, still no coachin’ me
I’m uncoachable, I’m unsociable."

Jackson responded via Twitter on Tuesday, offering some advice for the rapper:

The Zen Master can coach anyone.
