Comments: 0  | Leave A Comment

He may catch a lot of flack for looking like your average server at Pappadeaux’s (that’s not a diss…from me at least), but Kendrick Lamar says he’s competitive with all of his fellow rappers — including the big ones like Jay-Z, Nas, and Kanye West.

On his competitive nature, Kendrick explained:

“It’s the competitive nature. We can’t forget that. We can do features with each other. We can rap with each other. But at the end of the day, you gotta want to be the best,” he explained. “I’m definitely competitive with [Black Hippy]. I’m competitive with them. I’m competitive with Jay-Z. I’m competitive with Nas. I’m competitive with Kanye [West]. We’re in the big leagues now. I can’t be looking at them as big homies for the rest of my life.”
