Game Proclaims Kendrick Lamar The "West Coast Nas," Says He Encouraged The Rappers Name Change

Game says Kendrick Lamar reminds him of a "West Coast Nas," speaks on the rappers former moniker, K-Dot.

Although his debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d city, was released exactly one week ago, Compton lyricist Kendrick Lamar is continuing to receive praise for his debut. The latest nod came from fellow West Coast rapper and past collaborator Game, who referred to Kendrick as being the “West Coast Nas” during a recent interview.

While speaking with Rap-Up.com, Game also spoke on the TDE emcee’s lyrical styling’s which he referred to as being “amazing.”

“Kendrick is like our West Coast Nas so to speak,” said Game. “Lyrically amazing, I hope no one ever beefs or tries to attack him lyrically, [they] would definitely lose. His mind is crazy. I was just in the studio with Nipsey last night talking about how crazy and how far Kendrick’s mind wanders and it translates on records real dope.”

Prior to commenting on Kendrick’s lyricism, Game addressed the rappers name change from K-Dot to Kendrick Lamar, a change he believes helped propel his career.

“It’s really dope to see hard work pay off. Somebody that I helped, shape, and mold. I remember when I told K-Dot, that K-Dot wasn’t gonna work and that he should just change his name to Kendrick and he did that,” the rapper explained. “And next thing you know it’s Aftermath and people are checking, bitches are like ‘Kendrick, Kendrick!’”

Game is currently preparing for the release of his next studio album, Jesus Piece, which is due out on December 11.

    The West Coast Nas? Nasir has beef with everyone in the game. From shouting out 'Mega, to dissin 'Mega, from Fitty collabs to Fitty disses, Im not even gonna start w the Jay situation. Nas dissed Mobb Deep as well, and Rakim even had issues with the cat...Im a big fan of Nas, but not for his personality, for his skill---I respect KDOTs personality and skill. KDOT is far from a beef rapper. He didnt even retaliate on Shyne..Kendrick is an intellectual and all embracing and encompassing.

    My top 5 rappers in the game right now in no particular order. Joey Bada$$, Ab Soul, Nas, K. Dot, Freddie Gibbs. I based my list off of lyrical ability, delivery, content of lyrics, and ability to rap over any beat. All of these rappers have somethin different, none of these rappers can come with gutter graphic lyrics and spit lyrical shit over a lex luger beat like freddie gibbs, but Nas is prolly the deepest only because he's older and has more experience, Ab Soul and K. Dot mix up the content of their rhymes very well and can spit over alot of different beats, but lyrically I believe Ab Soul is better than K. Dot, not by alot though, and for his age Joey Bada$$ is just a straight up beast. But their all different and bring somethin different to the table. All this top rapper debatin is all a matter of opinion, but if you bring lyrical ability, content, sales, mainstream success and what not into the convo then, Eminem would most likely take the goat title

  • w h o k n o w s

    Game has compared himself, Lupe, J.Cole & now Kendrick to Nas... every time somebody lyrical comes out he's blastin' the Nas comparison.. Nas is one of a kind.. THERE IS NO NEW NAS.. PERIOD

    didn't Game call himself the west coast Nas on a song before?

  • wolf_raziel

    i agree w/ the heads saying kendrick > nas. as far as where they're both at now if we go head to head on diversity of flows, creativity, versatility, and just whose pushing hip hop forward as an art form in general kendrick comes out on top hands down. the only thing i can say they're evenly matched w/ is lyrics. niggas need to get over the fact that nas dropped illmatic which might i add was almost 20 years ago. a lot of people of my generation don't even have the right to gas about it the way the older heads do because we weren't around for all the hype and the cultural impact it had made back when it was released. nas is an excellent rapper but as far as artistry goes he's inconsistent as fuck, and depending on your taste, before life is good, he hadn't dropped a good album since god's son.

    No where close to being Nas. GTFOH. Damn, seems like everybody is a dick rider now a days. Nas in his prime was 100 x better than Kendrick. Illmatic does the number 2 on good kid maad city. GTFOH with that bullshit. Present day Nas 5 x better than Kendrick Lamar. Don't get me wrong, Kendrick Lamar is nice but this overhyping is getting out of hand. You have to earn your medals before you wear them. Too much dick riding going on.

    First of all: Game, wake the fuck up! Your mixtapes are fire, but your recent albums are similar to DJ Khaled compilations, wtf... Second: Nas and Kendrick are completely different, however both really talented with great story-telling skill and both managed to raise above their peers while remaining faithful to their fan base. However you cannot compare the Rise of the Roman Empire to the Rise of the Persian Empire. Third: racial discrimination according to music genre? c'mon son, not on hiphopdx, it's all about the love of music here, regardless of color.

    "Well... He was BUSY doing his job promoting his music" Nobody has to promote their album every single day. We all know it's not coming out this year anyway, so I think he just loves the sound of his own voice. It's soothing, in between fist fights with other rappers and the sound of gunshots in Compton.

    • RED-bWs

      You do realize that Kendrick looks up to Game. He has for YEARS. 2nd verse of Black Boy Fly off GKMC is all about Game. Kendrick respects Game, Game is showing he respects Kendrick back. I hate when people get mad at Game for paying homage to new and old rappers. Watch Ice T's The Art of Rap, I just finished watching that. The old school rappers say that artists who pay homage are the ones who are gonna save Hip-Hop. Game's been doing that his whole career, and ya'll hate on him for it.

I respect his talent and I know he's an ill ass rapper but the fact that right now there is no competition for him in the rap game, people are quick to say that his album is classic ! People overate him because there is nothing else to rate. Imagine if tupac didn't exist , everybody would be saying biggie is the best fucking rapper that ever did it!! same with kendrick.

      Kendrick knows how to make a great fuckin concept album man. You must not be listening to his lyrics,if you can tell me of a new or recent up and coming artist that is as lyrical, and deep, and fire as Kendrick then do tell because nobodies doin it like him.

    I'm Game, I'm an attention whore, I proclaim shit that really isn't true. I remember when I went back in time to tell some up and comers out of Cleavland, Ohio to change their names from Calcium-Gang members EN Chaos to Bone Thugs N Harmony. I love talking to TMZ, and dissing people to stay relevant. It might because Kendrick's numbers for his debut are going to beat my last album and my new one. I get butthurt about Shyne's comments when Kendrick doesn't give two shits about them. I'm sinking lower and lower, please, somebody help me.

      "When you state that a rapper's career is better then a random commenter, you're a dickrider." LOL, like I stated before you're not very good guessing somebodies character by looking at a few words written on an internet blog. I only really like 1 album from Game and kind of like Doctor's Advocate as well, but internet bloggers piss me off more than Game pleases me... "When you talk about internet thugs, but insult someone first" Personally I didn't class it as insulting, I was just telling the truth. I guess Simon Cowell doesn't class what he does as insulting, he just tells the truth. "you're really just a dick goblin" "Nob Goblin" is funnier.

      No. You're a dickrider. When you state that a rapper's career is better then a random commenter, you're a dickrider. When you're obviously the dude two comments above this one's, trying to be reasonable about Game's free time; you're a dickrider. When you talk about internet thugs, but insult someone first, because they talked shit about an artist you like; you're a dickrider. The only thing sad here, is you. I'm going to reiterate it, is he paying you? Is he supporting you because you're supporting him? No. If you're getting butthurt about some random's comments then you're a dickrider. Simple as that. Stop acting like a level headed, educated dude when you're really just a dick goblin.

  • the Grza

    Technically he sounds more like Andre 3000 and Em. Kendrick has a very mechanical flow that sounds nothing like Nas. In terms of content it's too early to say. Nas' content has covered just about anything you can rap about. The only similarity that I see is creativity.

    i hate when motherfuckers start comparing up-and-coming rappers to Nas. calling them the 'new Nas' or the '2nd coming of Nas'. Nas was a one of a kind artist, there will never be another rapper like him or even close to him and none of these new jacks will ever come close to putting out a discography like Nas' over the course of their careers (however long/short they may be).

    lmfao the west coast nas last time i checked his lyrics arent that deep typical game dick riding as usual. the west has powerful lyricists and they aint signed to major labels and doing tracks with drake so y dont you just take you little red bandana and plug it in that fake mouth off yours fake lollipop thugs rass kass has better lyrics than kendrick and your bitch ass didnt show him no respect everything this dude says is a publicty stunt to boost album sales i aint no clown buying into this bullshit.

  • yeaaahh

    He reminds me more Andre 3000 than Nas.. his flow, voice, and production gives off that Outkast/Dungeon Family vibe..

      hell games next album isnt even a solo album nearly every song is featuring someone. what kinda of shit is that. He claims to be a west coast artist but barely every has a west coast artist rap with him he too busy dick riding lil wayne and kanye thats why his fan base is declineing along with the record sales.

      for your information i have all off games albums but its time to face facts the dudes sold out as soon as i heard celebration i turned my back on game i overlooked ALOT off his bullshit for the sake off his music being relativly good but now thats gone to shit and game is a problem to this rap game that i live for. more off this new school pop sounding shit is surfacing thanks to the game and it actually amuses me how much love he has for wayne and young money you see a man go from a stripper with butterflys tattoed on his body to claiming piru then dieing his hair red like a chick crying on camera over album sales and making pop music with the rap boy george we gunna have a problem with that im hip hop to the core motherfucka hip hops my bitch and i aint letting no one fuck her.
