Kendrick Lamar Talks Drake, Dr. Dre, Erykah Badu & 2Pac In New Interview

Hip Hop superstar Kendrick Lamar recently gave an interview with i-D.Vice. The Q&A featured a range of topics including his first meeting with Dr. Dre, what album he has listened to the most, how he connected with Drake for the Take Care LP, and which artist he would most like to work with in the future.

On the album he has listened to the most:

That’s hard, that’s tough. They played a lot of Tupac All Eyez On Me, Me Against The World, they probably played that track a hundred thousand times in our house.

On collaborating with Drake:

I went on his Club Paradise tour and we really built a bond, a relationship, since the first time we met. He put me on his album, which was the interlude, ["Buried Alive Interlude"], we always said it was gonna work, it was just about finding the right song, that was the right song.

On his first meeting with Dr. Dre:

I was very excited, I wasn’t nervous at all. I was more excited, ’cause I knew that this was my shot, everything that I’ve worked for, everything I’ve built up to came down to that moment.

On who he would like to collaborate with in the future:

I’m really tight on collaborations, I always say Erykah Badu, that’s it for now, that’s always in the back of my mind.
