KENDRICK LAMAR IS THE GREATEST RAPPER ALIVE!
Thursday, Aug 10, 2017

It’s hard to stay Humble when you’re Kendrick Lamar.

As if Beyoncé and Blue Ivy attending your concert wasn’t enough of an accolade, Rolling Stone declared him the “Greatest Rapper Alive.”

In the interview, Kendrick Lamar opens up about what separates him from other artists.

“How would I define a wack artist? A wack artist uses other people’s music for their approval. We’re talking about someone that is scared to make their own voice, chases somebody else’s success and their thing, but runs away from their own thing. That’s what keeps the game watered-down. Everybody’s not going to be able to be a Kendrick Lamar. I’m not telling you to rap like me. Be you. Simple as that. I watch a lot of good artists go down like that because you’re so focused on what numbers this guy has done, and it dampers your own creativity. Which ultimately dampers the listener, because at the end of the day, it’s not for us. It’s for the person driving to their 9-to-5 that don’t feel like they wanna go to work that morning.”

Do you agree that Kendrick Lamar is the greatest rapper alive? Watch Dish Nation try to figure out who else was deserving of this title while ignoring the *First Female Rapper to Go Platinum* in the room!

BEYONCÉ AND BLUE IVY HAVE A GIRLS NIGHT OUT!
