New Kendrick Lamar! Compton’s King appeared on a Maroon 5 track this week. It’s called “Don’t Wanna Know” and it’s dope. Last week Kendrick presented Snoop Dogg with the I Am Hip Hop Award during the BET Hip Hop Awards. One west coast legend saluting another, it was a beautiful moment. Snoop reminded new artists to be themselves and not worry about what critics and outsiders say and think about them or their craft. All of this got me thinking: Kendrick Lamar may be the greatest rapper of all time. Let’s break it down.
