INTERVIEW: Kendrick Lamar @ Chelsea Lately!



MAGAZINE: Kendrick Lamar x BULLET


Kendrick was recently featured in NY’s BULLET magazine, where he has an editorial styled with high-end and streetwear fashion. His article is titled: ‘Kendrick Lamar Goes Straight Outta Compton and Into the Spotlight’. In the interview, he discussed the history behind his word play (see excerpt below). For his article in its entirety, check out bulletmedia.com.

“Being around older people helped me develop my vocabulary. They got drunk a lot and they partied a lot, but they had great conversations. I always hung around older people because I understood more about the world than most kids my age. I picked up on things and practiced them in my conversations, in my writing. Fortunately, it grew into an art.”
