Kendrick Lamar werd geïnterviewd door Dave Chappelle voor Interview magazine

Kendrick doet vrijwel geen interviews, maar voor Dave Chappelle maakt hij graag een uitzondering. Voor Interview Magazine spraken de twee uitgebreid en op gelijke voet – o.a. over de krankzinnige groei van Kendrick.

“I think I’m still growing. The more people I meet, the more cultures I start to embrace, the more people I open myself up to—it’s a growing process I’m excited about. But it’s also a challenge for me, to be at this level and still be able to connect with somebody who’s living that everyday life. At first it was something I struggled with, because everything was moving so fast. I didn’t know how to digest it. The best thing I did was go back to the city of Compton, to touch the people who I grew up with and tell them the stories of the people I met around the world. Making To Pimp a Butterfly was me navigating those experiences. I went to Africa and I was like, “This is something I can enjoy and something I can challenge myself with.”
