Kendrick Lamar's Guide to L.A.

Compton

Kendrick Says: "I'm from the West Side of the city. People make a big thing about Compton, and growing up I heard all kind of things about the place I was raised, but when you live in it, it becomes normal. People are intimidated by the neighborhood, but it was the norm for me. You ain't gotta be afraid of the place. But you should know the mentality. It's a gang culture. If you grow up only watching people in gangs, you won't see anything different unless someone shows you something to break that cycle. Music can show someone something positive."
