Kendrick Lamar Talks Black Hippy And What’s Next

Kendrick Lamar has been on everyone’s mind all week, but what does the man have to say?

Well, nothing on “Control” – yet. talked to Lamar at Lollapalooza, and got the low down on his Grammy aspirations and his reactions to “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe.”

Your song “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” has become part of the lexicon. I’m sure you’ve seen all the people wearing shirts and hats with the title on it. Is it surprising to you how many people connect with that line?

Lamar: Yeah, you never know what really stands out like that. What will really stick. When you make a record you know it will be a fun good record, but you don’t know how many people carry it in their day-to-day lifestyle. Like these people go out and make their own shirts. I haven’t put out any shirts, you know, so they’re not coming from me. They’re going to their local spot and getting it put on there. They use it as a lifestyle rather than just a song. So it’s crazy.”
