Kendrick Lamar Interviews With Nardwuar, Discusses Tech N9ne, Big Daddy Kane

Nardwuar interviews Kendrick Lamar about a bevy of subjects, including Tech N9ne, Big Daddy Kane, and Dr. Dre.

Nardwuar the Human Serviette struck again, as the famous interviewer astounded Kendrick Lamar at SXSW 2012 in Austin, Texas.

During the interview, Nardwuar asked whether Tech N9ne, with whom Kendrick later did a BET Cypher, connected Kendrick with another Compton native, Dr. Dre.

"We did the show [with Tech N9ne]...got strange call to my dude Ali phone, and it was Dr. Dre. I don't know. ...History since then. Thank you Tech N9ne!"

Nardwuar handed Kendrick Lamar a copy of Big Daddy Kane's single "Cause I Can Do It Right" on vinyl, prompting a story from K. Dot about the Brooklyn Legend.

"[Big Daddy Kane] is one of my pop's favorite artists," revealed Kendrick. "My pop's from Chicago. You know what's crazy? When I was coming home, they say, when I was in the car seat coming from the hospital, my pops was playing this really loud. My moms was like, 'Turn that shit down!' He was like, 'No. Let him hear. This is music, and it's good music.'"

    Old School rap fan: * is high as a kite * * spends 2 hrs in record store digging * "who's that y'all playing?" Record store worker : "Kendrick Lamar. He came out with a project called Section 80, kid has some skills." "Cool, let me buy that and the Section 80 and the rest of these albums" New School rap fan: "He signed to Aftermath, I ain't buying his album" "eff K.Dot he ain't better than my man Lil' TeeTee Deodorant check out his youtube" "I ain't heard any of his music but I know he gonna flop, nobody checking for him" "if Kendrick wanna sell he need some big features and some beats, he need to link up with Ross and Drake" It is YOU FANS who are killing the game. Y'all wouldn't have bought Biggie, Pac, Nas, Wu in their heyday. STOP LYING to yourself and the people you FRAUDS.

      I know they won't. I just put it out there because others do read and think and do not comment and they see the battle isn't lost. This generation ain't the one, it's the ones after them. Go get them, real talk.

      They won't admit to it because they're too damn hard headed. More than half the cats on here will say Linkin Park is their favorite rock band, probably because there's a rapper in the band.

    Nardwuar is one of those coolest interviewers. He always touches base on the positive side of artist. ...cept for the one he did with Busta.
