Kendrick Lamar Once Revealed The Game Not On His Top Greatest Albums
Lately there has been some flam around public domains with folks coming after The Game while some are more interested in supporting The Game’s best rapper of Compton.
Kendrick Lamar is yet to unvile what he really think about The Game paving way for him. But love it or loath it, K. Dot is not a rapper who build fan base under social media coverage. Meanwhile it’s even rare extorting attention from him.
Previously The Game said he’s the best rapper in Compton camp. Maybe same Game thinks Kendrick Lamar knows more of that. However, it could be such disappointing seeing the All The Stars rhymer not having any recognition for Game’s career.
Kendrick Lamar already knew those 90’s whom he follow their lead. Like 2pac, J. Cole, Eminem, Dr Dre, Jay-Z, The Notorious BIG and more rapper with traditional albums.
Every living hip-hop rapper has those peers he pays homage to. Like revealing top favorite albums, songs, or saying his favourite rappers at large.
Lamar during 2012 Interview with complex that was a platform were he mentioned his 25 to greatest albums. He first hover on Dr Dre’s The Chronic. Lamar said: “That was probably the first rap album I remember them playing in the house from top to bottom. Songs that I actually remember as a kid. That’s the start of them house parties I always talk about growing up.”
The Chronic is just one of the 25 records that Lamar picked out as one of the records that shaped him from a young age. Sitting down with Complex, Lamar broke down how some of the biggest names in the business have helped shape his vision. “[What resonated with me was] the storytelling, just the storytelling, how in-depth the storytelling was,” he said of the Notorious B.I.G. “The storytelling and the flow. The one thing about West Coast music, we had storytelling, it wasn’t crazy in-depth like that, but we had it. Our stuff was more laid back, more flow and feel good, more how records felt. His was just grimy. Stories was crazy. Flows was crazy.”
