Kendrick Lamar has described Lady Gaga as "a beautiful person" with a "genius mind" after collaborating with the The Wrap Up, the Swimming Pools rapper added: “It’s just great to be around people that inspire you from another genre, you know. In fact, it’s even bigger for her to respect hip hop music the way she does, true hip hop music, so much respect to her.”
Lamar, who’s already collaborated with other huge hip hop artists like Pharrell Williams, Busta Rhymes and The Game recalled the first moment he met good kid, m.A.A.d city exec producer Dr Dre.
“[It] was the greatest and most special moment,” he remembered. “He was in the studio, I walked in, we greeted each other, it was a cool vibe, he’s a real humble dude.
“The first beat he was playing was the last song on my album which is Compton, that’s the first song I ever recorded with him. That song holds a real special spot on my first album and we just vibed out man, just kicked it, and it brought up memories that I remembered from where I was from.
“He just wanted to continue that and he signed me to the label so it was a pleasure, it was an honour. I’ll never forget that day.”
Kendrick also revealed his UK tour in January 2013 “is going to be crazy”.
The Recipe lyricist said: “Last time I got here I did a few spot dates you know, a great show, crazy, crazy show, I just want to take it to the next level now and perform these new songs that I haven’t got the chance to really perform it the way I want to out in the UK. So that’s a whole ‘nother energy you know - it’ll be insane.”
