Kendrick Lamar To His Fans, “I’m The Closest Thing To A Preacher They Have”

| March 18, 2015 | 0 Comments


Everyone has been talking about the unexpected release of Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp A Butterfly.” Kanye West even took one of his rants to Twitter to express his appreciation on Kendrick’s positive affect on the culture of hip hop.

The New York Times quickly took advantage of the hype and released an in-depth profile on the Compton MC. He reflects on his life traveling outside of Compton where he expanded his worldview, connected with fans, and came up with the concept of the album. Kendrick also explains why he is more political in his music today compared to his debut album “Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City”, because he is able to see the world differently since he left California for tours and other experiences involving hip hop culture.

“You take a kid out of Compton, and he has to meet these different types of people who are not black,” Kendrick said.

Also, he understands that the youth of the world is living through his lyrics so it is up to him to be more responsible when it comes to his message he provides in his music.

“I’m the closest thing to a preacher that they have,” Kendrick said. “My word will never be as strong as God’s word. All I am is just a vessel, doing his work.”

Kendrick Lamar’s brand new album “To Pimp A Butterfly” is now available for purchase.
