U2 – “Get Out Of Your Own Way” feat. Kendrick Lamar

Interesting. U2 bringing on Kendrick Lamar for this “Get Out of Your Own Way” is good business; even a damn decent song. Listen to the stream and judge for self. Strange to not credit K. Dot on the Spot stream (to draw in his fanbase) though. Just saying.

Rapsody – “Power” feat. Kendrick Lamar x Lance Skiiiwalker (Video)

Rapsody answers her own question: What is “Power” (with an assist from Kendrick Lamar & Lance Skiiiwalker) in the dopest way… in visual form here!

Nia Long Just Gave Kendrick Lamar The Permission (Video)

See? Nia had no shade for K.Dot. She just did not recognize the new Compton Don… yet. But see, now that she does, she gave him PERMISSION to use her name in that next dope rhyme.

Savage Savvy!

But let’s keep rewinding at the end where lovely Ms. Long stressed that that gold-beaded dress was on a mission: To ‘hold it in and push it OUT!’ Mercy!

(So… that’s why that red carpet clip is after the jump. Yes and more yes yes, indeed!)

Kendrick Lamar – “Humble” (Skrillex Remix)

Didn’t know there was anywhere else to go with the “Humble” joint from Kendrick Lamar. But then Skrillex came with this Remix. See? Stuff like this. Exhibit A in the ‘How To Turn Up The Turn-Up’ manual. Heavy horns with the boom booms! This is that devilment for the party speakers! #Turnt #HAAAA #Humble #SkrillexRemix

DJ Kay Slay – “Cold Summer” feat. Kendrick Lamar x Mac Miller x Kevin Gates x Rell

DJ Kay Slay is known as ‘The Sh!t Starter’ right? Well, he started some dope sh!t putting this rhyme click together. Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, Kevin Gates, and Rell… together… on a funky smooth track… Who’da thunk? Very worthwhile. “The Big Brother” LP might well be worth checking out, too.

Kendrick Lamar – “Loyalty.” feat. Rihanna (Video)

Watch. What’ll get your heart racing faster… ever sexy and sexier RiRi or K. Dot hanging her off the side of a sky rise in his visual for “Loyalty.” Insanely good. Good insanity. The visuals, the depth of the song, everything!

KENDRICK LAMAR – DAMN. (ALBUM)

Kendrick Lamar Lists His All Time Top Five (Video)

Jay Z, Eminem, 2Pac, Biggie, and Snoop Dogg. Mighty powerful list for a guy that is NOT big on such lists. And yes, he was aware that Nas was not on his list… just missed the cut.

Kendrick Lamar runs down his list of his top 5 all time favorite rappers, living or dead.
– Power 106 Los Angeles

Great clip! See a much longer interview after the jump where K. Dot talks about his latest album (“DAMN.”), his insatiable hunger for Hip-Hop, the passing of Prodigy (of Mobb Deep) and more.

Kendrick Lamar – “ELEMENT.” (Prod. By Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith x Dave Free x Jannis Birsner) [Video]

It’s a difference between Black artists and wack artists.

Daaamn! K. Dot is hot about something or other in this vid. Guess he’s tired of telling mutha-shut-yo-moufs to be “Humble” and just got to slapping blood out dudes’ mouths. Very visceral visuals as a vehicle to present some more definitely dope music from Kendrick Lamar. Music produced by Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, Dave Free, and Jannis Birsner. Fresh off Kendrick’s “DAMN.”

(That part where they dropped the beat and Kendrick flowed like Juvenile in “Ha” was particularly dope!)

KENDRICK LAMAR – DAMN. (ALBUM)

Future – “Mask Off” feat. Kendrick Lamar (Remix)

Not gonna ask if you’ve been checking for that Future joint “Mask Off” since it came out. In the end, among us folks on here, the argument ends up being fruitless. However, a K. Dot appearance on a remix to “Mask Off”… we can talk about that… after y’all listen.

And yeah, Kendrick snapped!

Kendrick Lamar – “DAMN.” (Album Stream)

K-Dot’s Damn album is all him. Only three tracks even allow another soul to say a Damn thing. And while there are a few scant ‘reviewers’ who have found something to hate about this recent Kendrick campaign, most (including most likely you) have nothing but kudos for Lamar’s latest – “DAMN”.

KENDRICK LAMAR – DAMN.

Kendrick Lamar – “Humble” (Video)

Lots of conjecture about who Kendrick is talking to, telling ’em shut up and be “Humble” and such. If no names are called, no responses are called for… How about we all just enjoy the crazy that is trademark K-Dot? Includes some insane special effects. But please believe theres a generous drizzling of thick Honeyz in here, too!

Kendrick Lamar – “The Heart” (Part 4)

So, K. Dot decided that now was the time to set fire to Hip-Hop with a rhyme! And this “The Heart” (Part 4) is fiery to be sure (iTunes-linked below). Listening makes you wonder if those shots, jabs and hooks were aimed at specific people or just sucka archetypes. Break it down and let it be broke, Kendrick. Name names!

(The beat changeups though!)

Kendrick Lamar On Life, Living And The Pursuit Of God (Video)

You want a follow-up to to “To Pimp A Butterfly” don’t you? Well, you at least wish someone (like the NY Times) would ask about it, right? Wish granted. The above video is the NY Times On Set with the Compton emcee talking about content for that and a bit more. Peep.

Also some extra insights from his conversation with the T Magazine folks (from NY Times).

“I think now, how wayward things have gone within the past few months, my focus is ultimately going back to my community and the other communities around the world where they’re doing the groundwork. ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ was addressing the problem. I’m in a space now where I’m not addressing the problem anymore. We’re in a time where we exclude one major component out of this whole thing called life: God. Nobody speaks on it because it’s almost in conflict with what’s going on in the world when you talk about politics and government and the system.”

Kendrick Lamar – “Vice City” (Freestyle) [Video]

Yep. He did. With Jay Rock looking on he did. K. Dot freestyled on the spot doing “Vice City” live for the Watts (California, USA) crowd. Enjoy the clip above; and a different vantage point of the happening after the jump.

Rick Rubin Talks With Kendrick Lamar Talk About The Music-Making Process, Motivation And More (Video)

Looking back on our posts on the two, a simple math emerges… Rick Rubin = Engaging viewing experience. Kendrick Lamar = Compelling content worth watching. So, Rubin and K. Dot, you must NOT miss this.

When we introduced K.Dot to Double-R at Shangri-La Studios in Malibu, conversational fireworks flew. Hit play, and come away inspired.
– GQ

Kendrick Lamar ‘Work-Work-Working’ Out His Own Version of “Work” & “Controlla” (Video)

Bwaaahahaaa! Drake fan site @WordOnRd is claiming to have captured/shared some priceless extortion-worthy audio of Kendrick Lamar singing like he is on one AND two. Then again, dude was probably just letting the fun flow. We’ve all been there; ‘in sync’ with the stereo making a singing noise that may or may not be joyful. Ha! Quick ‘car karaoke with K-Dot‘ clip for you to enjoy.

Good Kid m.A.A.d City (Short Film)

Dope! This has been under wraps for three years? WHY?? Check out this K.Dot film that complemented the album dropped a good while back.

A short film from Kendrick Kamar (KDot), giving a great visual on the album of the century “Good kid m.A.A.d City.”

Looks like somebody is trying to keep it under wraps… Go watch now, before ‘they’ snatch this one down, too!

Noisey Bompton: Growing Up With Kendrick Lamar (Parts 2 Through 6) [Video]

Yessir! This is the rest of the K.Dot & Compton mini-doc “Bompton” from VICE Noisey. You might want to take a look at the Part 1 post (here) before hitting play above for Part 2. Parts 3 through 6 are after the jump. Incredible insights on the man who is currently considered to be the man in Hip-Hop by many today.

Noisey Bompton: Growing Up With Kendrick Lamar (Part 1) [Video]

Surely you did not think it was a game when we said that Kendrick Lamar said he would rep Compton for life, did you? He got the Key To The City and he’s still locked in! Well, Noisey is dropping six parts of proof for the last one or two of you doubters out there. Yep, VICELAND Noisey sent one of their Whitest reporters out to the Blood side of Compton (that’s Bompton) to talk to K.Dot and give us perspective on the hood love he gets now and what it was like “Growing up with Kendrick Lamar.” Hood pass granted!

Compton, California, is one of Hip-Hop’s most celebrated locales, the birthplace of acts like N.W.A. and, more recently, Kendrick Lamar. It’s also home to a complicated gang culture. ‘Noisey Bompton’ centers around Kendrick Lamar and the friends he grew up with on the West Side of Compton, many of whom feature on the cover of his album ‘To Pimp A Butterfly.’ In the first of six segments, we sit down with Kendrick to talk about his acclaimed albums, pay a visit to his high school, Centennial, and get to know his childhood friend Lil L.
