About 6 months ago I was able to sit down and talk to Kendrick, while he was lying down vocals on G-Malones new album, about his life and how growing up in Southern Cali (Compton) affected his mind and music.
I cut this on my laptop so its not meant for primetime, just something I thought K-Dot fans would enjoy. Shout to Glasses Malone and Bryan “Money” Sallis for allowing me and my crew to come thru and a special shout out to Kendrick Lamar for keeping it 100 on the interview.
