Kendrick Lamar Speaks On Being Fully Backed By Interscope, Says He Never Had To Compromise

Kendrick Lamar says there was "no compromise at all" when it came to being a new artist on Interscope Records.

Compton wordsmith Kendrick Lamar continued to address the doubters and naysayers as he spoke directly to those who questioned his move to Interscope during a recent interview with MTV News. In his interview, the TDE rapper explained that there was no compromise at all when it came to making his music nor was there any pressure from the label.

“People tell me this every day, I was in a blessed position,” said Kendrick. “No compromise at all. [They] told me to go, continue what I’m doing – Interscope, Dre. Continue doing what I’m doing. And I think that just comes from them having faith in the music, them believing in the foundation that we built from the ground up, and not wanting to lose that foundation. So many people say, ‘Well I was hearing…he signed to which-a-call-it. I know it’s about to happen now. He’s finna come with something left.’ But at the whole time this was already premeditated how we was gon’ come.”

Kendrick also spoke on the support he received from Dr. Dre who he says was ready to get the balling rolling the first week he was signed to Interscope. He revealed that Dr. Dre seemed confident in him already being developed as an artist and merely asked him how long it would take to create his solo album.

“In so many words you know what Dre said…this probably like my first week after being signed to him. He said, ‘You know what? You ready. Ain’t no need developing you or being over your shoulders. You already ready. How long do you think you’re gonna take to build this album,’” Kendrick explained.

good kid, m.A.A.d city was released in October of this year and was recently named “Album Of The Year” in the 2012 HipHopDX Year End Awards.

    For all these motherfuckers that say 50 cent killed Ja Rule's career, read this: Ja Rule was the shit '99-'04. He sold millions of records, but unfortunately that dumb ass Irv Gotti had some ties with Suge and Supreme. And Feds came in and raided the murder.inc offices NUMEROUS times. Everyone in murder.inc went to trail and could have faced 25 to life if they couldn't prove their innocence. Luckily they did. Now, Ja Rule couldn't do music from '04 'till like '06 because he had all these trials and all this shit with courts and feds. And 50 cent just happened to diss him during this particular period and claimed he "destroyed" his career. 50 didn't destroy anything, ja rule had to stop making music for some time and had to put a pause to his career because the fucking FEDS were fucking the whole murder.inc up. They really fucked their money up. After that nobody wanted to work with them because of their ties with the mob and DefJam didn't renew their contract. 50 just dissed Ja RUle at that time and y'all stupid ass 5-0 dickriders think 50 made ja rule stop making music. Fuck y'all, what's more important? A stupid rap beef with some hoe ass nigga or a fucking trial where your life is at stake? Hope now shit is clear to you. 50 cent never killed anyone's career, he didn't kill ja rule's career, Feds ruined it. He wanted to fuck Rick Ross' money up and even though he tried SO HARD, Ross still be doin' numbers, as if nothing even happened. And of course 50 could never touch Jay Z, Nas or Jadakiss. Fat Joe been doing just fine even though this hoe ass nigga dissed him. Not to mention how game annihilated g unit with those mixtapes from 2006. 50 cent isn't capable of killing anyone's career and that's a fact.

      There are some things that are bigger than Suge Knight, that you don't seem to understand ..Do y'all STILL think that Tupac & Biggie's death was the result of a rap feud, sparked by Suge Knight? Do you, REALLY, know the powers that be? Please see the vid I uploaded, under Lashid4u: "Hip-Hop CONSPIRACY! MUST HEAR! Part 3 of 3" ..Toward the end, what happened w/ Ja Rule is discussed..

    whether you agree or not GKMC is a classic. its not about how good or lyrical or deep the album was its about timing kdot dropped that shit at a period where every other rapper was dropping the exact opposite of everything that album stands for. even jcole said it classics take timing and kdot delivered at the right time....GKMC=CLASSIC ALBUM

    My question is why do people hate JayZ? I respect you if you just don't like his music. But some people call him a sellout? why is it that so many blacks will only celebrate you as long as you dont get too much success? I'll tell you. because those of us who think that way are the REAL enemy. you allow someone to program the idea in your head that blacks can't be but so successful before they are considered a sell-out. it's like a tax bracket. you good until you pass a certain success level. then you are a sell-out. Yall don't even realize that this is a slave mentality. I've never seen a white person call Eminem a sellout lol

    Obviously none of you listen to what he really has to say. He has, on multiple occasions, brought up the fact that this album is only a piece of a much more expansive story and each Black Hippy member has a piece of that story to tell. Argue all you want about it being a classic, the fact that you're bitching so much about if it is or not shows me that when they're done executing this grand plan they have, we will have many "classics".

    So sick of these hipster fans talking bout "He overhyped and it ain't a classic because too many people dickride it." The whole point of a classic is that EVERYONE LIKED IT! I have yet to see someone legitimately say this was a bad album, all they say is that it wasn't a classic. If that many people have to say it isn't a classic, then it's probably a classic regardless of their irrelevant opinion.

    People are gassing this dude left and right while haters hope to see him fail, drop, that's why Hip Hop artists don't care for artistic integrity because you all bullshit yourselves about NOT seeing rappers as they are, disposable. Every rapper can easily be replaced by the next. A legacy can be eradicated much easier then being conserved by great hits. And people don't really anticipate legendary hits. You guys, without sounding ironic, are not dedicated. You guys really do not give a shit for Hip Hop. You guys just wanna see this guy drop so lil Wayne can stay gassed up or some underground artist takeover his place or have yourself in his spot. You don't give a shit. So save yourselves a bit of integrity and don't hate. Cause the guy is dope and will keep being dope because he knows he's as disposable as my or your words.

I swear there are bandwagon/hipster fans out there, and y'all come in bunches. if you like him, that's all that matters. if you don't, fine. don't let your perception of him or the LP get clouded just cause he went gold and he's gettin mad hype on him or rappers wanna be him or he says he wants to rap with Jay-Z, Nas & Eminem - oh big deal, which rapper fuckin doesn't. but he got the platform to do it now. you don't have to like him but Kendrick got next.

    I think Kendrick is a great lyricist, and I'm happy that a lyricist has become so popular in today's hip hop. However, that cd was not a classic by any stretch. Labels have ruined rap; they have taken away artists freedoms. In the case of Kendrick; however, I wanted a little bit more label influence. Not bad influence; good beats influence. We needed 4 or 5 Dre beats on that album for it to be a classic. The issue nowadays is production is terible in hip hop. Think about the early 2000's: Kanye, Dre, Just Blaze, Premier, and Timbaland; all were still hot too. Now we have....hit boy? Kendrick had the ability to make an actual classic. You guys may say it is already; but to me a class is something that can and will be played over and over again or years to come. I dont think this album had enough classic beats, and it didn't have enough classic hooks. The complete songs weren't great they were just good songs.

      I'd probably give Sheraine and Good Kid the classic beat nod. M.A.A.D. City is close and could go either way. But not the others anon 1 mentioned. Compton is one of the weakest beats in Just Blaze's catalogue. It doesn't come close to any of his work from the early-mid 2000's or anything from Saigon's album he did last year. It doesn't even sound like a Compton west coast beat. It sounds more like one of his throwaways. Money Trees and Swimming Pools don't stand out as classic to me. Just m.o.

      Not enough classic beats?? These beats were perfect: Sheraine Compton Swimming Pools (Drank) - SONG OF THE YEAR / BEST BEAT OF THE YEAR m.A.A.d City Money Trees Good Kid that's half the cd with flawless beats... and Art of Peer Pressure is arguably flawless Your problem is your not listening to the beats with the subject matter. You are just thinking about Chronic-era beats which really wouldn't fit on the album. The beats on this perfectly reflect the mood of the songs, and a lot of them just sound incredible like Money Trees, Swimming Pools, Compton, even if the subject matter was different.

      Just like Tim Tebow. The media over-exposed his quarterback career at the Broncos. So far, his career is all fucked up thanks to the Jets hardly ever using him to play. The Jets may have kept Tebow's career at a standstill, but if it wasn't for the media, the Jets wouldn't have took him in and realized that he wasn't a good of a quarterback everyone and the media made him out of. Same with Jeremy Lin, as he was considered the shit in the NBA. I don't really watch basketball, but I used to hear "Jeremy this," "Jeremy that," and "Linsanity" all over the place. Now, I haven't heard the guy since 2011. I'm not even sure if he's still starting or is benched or is phased out from existence. Only the manipulative media. Let's just hope that Kendrick Lamar doesn't fall in that trap as well.
