Artist: Kendrick Lamar
Album: Overly Dedicated
Kendrick Lamar: "I like it just because it gave a different side of gangsta rap. I was talking about the same street tactics that the West Coast will talk about, but at the end of the day I put a message behind it, saying ignorance is bliss. These kids grow up not knowing what they do, they’re just influenced, and they react the same way. I think that was the perfect spin on my style. If you listen to me, it’s very vulnerable at the same time but it has a lot of street antics in it.”
