In a recent interview with Vegas’ own Bootleg Kev J. Cole discussed a bunch of topics including a joint album with big time up & comer Kendrick Lamar. This will be a great joint album with two of the best young emcees out today. Listen to the interview below.
One of the many bangin tracks off of Meek Mill’s monumental new mixtape Dreamchasers 2 is A1 Everything featuring Kendrick Lamar. Here’s an inside shot of them both enjoying their work in the studio.

Nardwuar is back! Looks like he visited SXSW a week or so back and got himself a bunch of interviews. Now the addictingly awkward Nardwuar is back with Compton’s very own Kendrick Lamar. As most artists, Kendrick is blown away at Nardwuar’s research and knowledge of his background. Definitely another must watch from Nardwuar.
