Kendrick Lamar's 25 Favorite Albums

Ice Cube, Death Certificate (1991)


Label: Priority, EMI
Kendrick Lamar: "I remember them playing that in the house as a kid but not really knowing how much it would influence the world. So I really doubled back to it a few years back and really sat down and listened to it. It’s just a crazy, crazy album. 'A Bird In The Hand' is one of my favoritest joints.

“I’m sure it was a big influence, just what he talked about. Cube talked about a lot of stuff that was going on in the world as well. He blended that into the streets and it was really from a raw standpoint. That’s why I like that the most.”
