Kendrick Lamar's 25 Favorite Albums

Lil Wayne, The Block Is Hot (1999)


Label: Cash Money
Kendrick Lamar: “They was killing the game. Cash Money was a heavy influence on the West Coast, I don’t think the world know. Mannie Fresh made the type of beats that still have the bass in it. L.A. love that bass. We weren’t really choppin’ to the boom bap feel until later on, but they had that bass, that ridin’ music. They had a style, that’s why we love ‘em.

"I just met Mannie Fresh on this tour. It was crazy. I got to ask him a few questions about the game and stuff, just getting a little insight about everything."
