In a recent interview with Wild 94.9, Kendrick and the rest of the Black Hippy crew talk about the West Coast sound and lyricism they’re bringing to the rap game. Kendrick talks on recent collaborations, including one with Kid Cudi, as well as working with the legendary producer Dr.Dre.
When asked which Rock the Bells artists he’d like to collaborate with, Kendrick revealed he already has one in the bag with Cudder.
“I just recently did a Kid Cudi collabo…I like Kid Cudi a lot, he got a crazy unique style about him.” He continued to say, “It’s on his upcoming album.”
K.Dot also reveals his mentor, Dr. Dre, is open to different kinds of sounds, especially a fresh sound from the West Coast, such as the one the Black Hippy crew is bringing. “He’s open to a lot of new things, a lot of new sounds, a sound that’s out now. I have my own specific sound, it’s real moody, sometimes bass-driven, sometimes boom-bap hip-hop driven,” Kendrick said of Dre & his own sound.
Lastly, Kendrick was asked about collabos happening on his album, which, as we’ve heard before, are being kept to a minimum. However, he did mention his dream collaborations: “I want one with Erykah Badu, I want one with D’Angelo.”
