Kendrick Lamar Talks About His Desired Impact
Kendrick Lamar has been one of the most influential figures in today’s Hip Hop world, but just recently he gave his input on the legacy he wants. He had an interview with Jazzy’s World TV at Rolling Loud Miami on July 24th, and mentioned the vision he has with his music.
Kendrick mentioned, “Really just an impact to inspire people and always showing them that the duality of life is not such a bad thing. We go through so many volatile situations where we don’t really know how to connect or communicate how we feel so through my music, I wanna make sure that’s the legacy; showing people how to communicate and it’s OK, you know, if you’re not perfect. It’s about accepting the beauty of imperfection.”
