Kendrick Lamar on what he’s learned from Kanye

It’s been awhile since we’ve heard Kendrick speak, so this interview is naturally a refreshing one and the first since the Yeezus Tour has hit a month long pause. K. Dot talks about what he’s learned from Kanye, along with his reaction to the Grammy noms, what music he’s listening to now and more in the video clip above and the full interview here.

Says K. Dot on learning from ‘Ye:

Kanye taught me to never to downplay your ideas. I learned to always stay as creative as possible and never have any boundaries. Those things that people called ‘rants’ on-stage are real conversations that we had behind closed doors — about business and how when you get to a certain level people won’t want to see you break through because they only see you as a rapper.
