On if he’s cool with Drake:

Pretty cool,” but added: “I mean, I would be okay if we weren’t.

In his interview, K. Dot acknowledged that Drake had taken his “Control” verse as a diss, and added that Drake wasn’t a creative influence or role model:

If anything. We all peers.”

Kendrick Lamar Performs In A $690 Christopher Kane Grayscale Creature Print Hoodie & The Matching $420 Sweatpants

kdot1

Compton’s native and Interscope recording artist Kendrick Lamar performed at the 2013 Governors Ball Music Festival at Randall’s Island in NYC over this past weekend. There’s no doubt that K Dot is a dope emcee but a lot of people including myself might question his fashion sense. In my opinion, he is not the most stylish rapper; in fact I don’t even like his style. However, his Governors Ball outfit caught my eyes. During his set, K Dot sported a $690 Christopher Kane Grayscale Creature Print Hoodie with the matching $420 Christopher Kane Creature sweatpants. He completed his outfit with all white Nike Air Force 1’s sneakers. The hoodie features Universal Studio’s Creature from The Black Lagoon-themed print throughout. You can get this hoodie at SSENSE and the sweatpants are available at MatchesFashion.

Is He Going Pop Too Soon? Lady Gaga Announces That She Recorded A Track For Kendrick Lamar Album

When a rapper release a track with a pop star, the first thing that some music critics say is, “he/she went pop.” In that case, did Kendrick Lamar go pop too fast? Last month, I posted pictures of Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar in Chicago. Gaga was there to catch her friend K. Dot performance at the Pitchfork Festival. Today, their friendship was taken to another level. Earlier today, Gaga tweeted that she is featured on “Partynauseous” off K. Dot’s debut album, good kid m.A.A.d city which is due this Fall 2012.

I wrote “PARTYNAUSEOUS” about Jakarta, and my relationship with that country. Wishing I could “get high with the enemy” and make peace. Once @kendricklamar + I started talking about life + his forward thinking views about love + hip hop, the song became something more,” says Lady Gaga.
