Compton-breed emcee Kendrick Lamar took off his signature all black for a cleaner-upscale look which appears in the latest issue of BULLET. The good kid in a m.A.A.D city styled in upscale designers including Alexander Wang, Kenzo, HBA, Jeremy Scott and more. Below is an excerpt:

Kendrick Lamar realized his life had changed while backstage at one of his sold-out shows. “Let’s see,” he says, trying to paint the picture. “Dre’s there. Snoop is in the room. Beautiful women are in the room. Homeboys are in the room, and everyone’s just mingling, man. It’s one of those moments when you’re like, I’m really a rapper now.” He laughs to himself, the way one does when describing the convergence of fantasy and reality. “Shit like that trips you out,” he says. ‘Even just walking onto your tour bus and seeing a full-blown studio in there, you’re like, Damn, I’m really doing this shit.’
