Duluth, GA – Kendrick Lamar is the closure of the last stage of The DAMN. Tour, a 36-date national of the expedition, which began on 7 July and ends on the 2nd of September in Miami. During a stop in Duluth, Georgia, Rolling Stone sat down with the highly revered Compton MC to discuss everything from his childhood to Drake.
After revealing that her childhood nickname was "man to Man" (his family always said that he carries himself as a man), played in what is a "crazy artist" is for him. This was a topic that was addressed in the DAMN. the track "ELEMENT",".," where is the distinction between a black artist and a wack artist.
"A wack artist uses the music of other peoples, for its approval," K. Dot explained. "We are talking about someone who is afraid to do his own voice, chasing someone else's success and your thing, but it goes away of its own thing. That is what keeps the game of the aguada. All the world is not going to be able to be Kendrick Lamar. I'm not saying that rap as I. Be you. Simple as that.
"I see a lot of good artists down as well because you're so focused on what the numbers this man has done, and shock absorbers of your own creativity," he continued. "Ultimately, the gates of the listener, because at the end of the day, it is not for us. It is for the person that leads to his 9-to-5 that do not feel like they want to go to work that morning."
With all of Kendrick's successes, their confidence is clearly intact, but admits that the song "HUMBLE". it was written as a reminder to himself to stay grounded. When he raps, "Hol' up bitch/ Sit down/ Be humble", and that he is talking to himself.
"The ego," he said. "When we look at the titles of the songs on this album, these are all my emotions and my self-expressions of who I am. That is why I made a song like that, where I just don't give a fuck, or I'm telling the listener, 'you can't fuck with me'. But ultimately, I'm looking in the mirror."
