Kendrick Lamar Explains What He Thinks Hip Hop Needs

Kendrick Lamar also names Erykah Badu as his dream collaboration.

Kendrick Lamar recently stopped by 107.5 WCGI’s The Morning Riot to discuss everything from his relationship with Lady Gaga to the discussion of old versus new in Hip Hop. During the interview, K. Dot, who said his dream collaboration is with Erykah Badu, spoke on what he thinks Hip Hop needs, stating that artists need to tightrope between having fun and writing raps with meaning.

“I just think it needs the proper balance,” he said. “Sometimes, things will get a little over the edge and corny, but it’s cats like myself that put depth in the game and still have fun and bring that fun energy and have something to say. So once it continues to have that balance, it’ll be cool.”
