Kendrick Lamar: Origins Of Excellence Part 1 & 2 [Video]

Posted on September 8, 2011

In part one of "Origins Of Excellence" I sit down with the 24-year-old to discuss the pressures of being crowned the new king of the West Coast, what his success means for his family, how Black Hippy was formed and what he learned from Jay Rock in the early part of his career.

In part two of our exclusive sit down with Kendrick Lamar, the Compton emcee tries to digest the term "classic" that has been associated with Section 80, how his approach to music has changed because of it being labeled as great and just who it was that he kicked out of the studio on the song "Hol' Up."
