So what did we learn about Kendrick Lamar during this Walmart Risers sesh?
What his album name means: "good kid, m.A.A.d City is a conceptual album. It's a self-portrait of who I am and what I represent. The ultimate thing is about coming from a dark place and transpiring that energy to do something positive with yourself."
What his mentor Dr. Dre told him: "To collaborate with great names like Dre is a great feeling, because you look up to him (and) he's a legend where I'm from. To be in the studio with him is a confirmation I'm on the right path and doing what I wanna do."
The crucialness of character: "What you go through eventually makes up who you are. Don't let anything like depression or sadness reflect on who you are today. Because tomorrow it will make you a better person. You gotta keep shining."
