The Gawd of music broadcasting Zane Lowe sat down with Hip Hop gawd Kendrick Lamar for 45-minute plus interview. K. Dot opened about the influence of the pillars of his Hip Hop fandom (Tupac, Jay Z, Eminem) on his writing, the impact of Tupac on both his own career as well as the entire spectrum of Hip Hop, and plenty of analysis and insight about his brilliant new album, DAMN.

Kendrick’s response to Lowe saying “it’s obviously important to you that no word is wasted,” along with his defense for calling himself the greatest rapper alive are two of the many highlights here. Check it all out above via Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio show.
