It’s crazy Kendrick Lamar dropped his first album less than 5 years ago. It has been phenomenal to watch his growth and to see him accomplish things that most artist take decades to do.
An interview dating back to late 2009, just a little before Kendrick’s first official release on Top Dawg, the Kendrick Lamar EP, has surfaced again. The interview ends with a 22-year-old Kendrick freestyling over Kanye West’s “So Appalled,” the track that featured Jay Z, CyHi Da Prince, Pusha T and RZA on 2010’s My Dark Twisted Fantasy.
The freestyle starts a little after the 3:00 mark, but the preceding interview proves that Kendrick is walking in his destiny, as he discusses his goal to bring his story to the world.
