In a recent interview with i-D Magazine, Kendrick Lamar remembers his first collaboration with Dr. Dre, “Compton”. When he was asked if he was nervous meeting Dr. Dre he answered he wasn’t nervous but excited meeting The Doctor and thinking to his first chance at success.
Compton is a track produced by Just Blaze.
“I was very excited [when I first met Dr. Dre], I wasn’t nervous at all. I was more excited because I knew that this was my shot,” he said. “Everything that I worked for, everything that I built up to came down to that moment…that moment, I recorded my first song with Dre, which was ‘Compton,’ which is the last song on my album [good kid, m.A.A.d city].”
