Kendrick Lamar is currently busy with international tour dates but still took time to recall his first experience meeting Dr. Dre.
“I was very excited,” Kendrick Lamar says during an interview with i-d.vice.com. “I wasn’t nervous at all. I was more excited, ’cause I knew that this was my shot, everything that l’ve worked for, everything I’ve built up to came down to that moment.”
It’s safe to say that moment was a success because it manifested into the recording of his first song with Dr. Dre, “Compton.” The song appears on Kendrick Lamar’s major label debut album, 2012’s good kid, m.A.A.d city.
