In a recent interview, Kendrick Lamar sat down to discuss about his new deal with Reebok, fashion, style, and how the youth are shaping the culture with The Coveteur while he was in Manchester, England.
In the interview, K Dot made huge comments about LL Wayne which didn’t only take the internet by storm but got the attention of the YMCMB boss man himself.
It all started when K Dot named Lil Wayne as one of his biggest style influences, before adding that he was “the greatest,” not just musically, but for what he’s down for the culture. K Dot can be quoted,
“Yeah, man, we was heavy. That’s a real story like, we was just huge, still to this day, huge Lil Wayne fans. Lil Wayne is the greatest. Not only because of his music but also because of the culture he put behind it. It was a big part of what he was talking about, so we always hold Lil Wayne in high regards. Juvenile as well. And yeah, it’s the impact of them man. To be a part of it the same way he was a part of it years later is just a great feeling.”
Not long after the interview had been published, Weezy caught wind of the compliment and took to twitter to acknowledge K Dot. Tune simply stated “Kendrick Lamar a real one #Respek.”
