Kendrick Lamar's 25 Favorite Albums

Kurupt, Tha Streetz Iz a Mutha (1999)


Label: Antra
Kendrick Lamar: "‘Callin’ Out Names,’ [laughs] that’s when he was going at everybody. I thought that was a real defining moment for what the West Coast do. The West Coast is very sensitive [laughs]. We’re very sensitive about situations and we backing it up fast. And Kurupt was busting on that.

“He had a lot of lyrical content. My lyrical content come from what he did on the West Coast. Lyrics stand out, he did ‘New York, New York,’ just that alone influenced how I flip words being from the West Coast.”
