Kendrick Lamar is still hanging in the upper levels of people’s list of favorites. In a recent interview with Montreality, Mike Epps spoke highly of the TDE rapper and his relationship with the West Coast crew.
“I think he’s a great lyricist. The dude is really ahead of his time,” Epps said of K.Dot. “Some of the words that he puts together is really of our day and he really represents this generation.” He also mentioned that Kendrick is a good kid that reminds him of the late hip-hop rapper, Tupac Shakur.
“He reminds me a lot of Pac,” he said. “The way he puts together his lyrics, how he speaks about real life, and it’s gang related. Street.”
The Friday comedian and the Top Dawg camp joined forces a couple of years ago for “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” music video, off of Kendrick’s good kid, m.A.A.d city album.
“Me and Top Dawg are real good friends,” Epps said. “Whenever they do something artsy that fits what I do, they invite me down there.”
