Kendrick Lamar On Pac & DMX
Snoop, Dre and Game endorsed him - the West is back on the map with Compton's very own Kendrick Lamar.
While in Las Vegas, Ken stopped by Hot 97.5’s and spoke about his influence. Among them was the fact that DMX’s first album, It’s Dark And Hell Is Hot, inspired him to start writing rhymes.
“Well, I started rhyming off of DMX first album,” Lamar explained when asked if there was anyone aside from Tupac he looked up to as an artist. “I’ll never forget I was in 7th grade [and] my homie Antonio just threw the CD in my hand said ‘Listen to this.’ I put that in man and I was blasting it and I started penning my own music.”
