August’s issue of Interview Magazine features comedy icon Dave Chappelle interviewing Kendrick Lamar. They talked about a variety of topics from Kathy Griffin, visiting Africa and the inner-workings of DAMN.
Kendrick also touches on his growth and development as an artist and individual, telling Chappelle, “I think I’m still growing. The more people I meet, the more cultures I start to embrace, the more people I open myself up to—it’s a growing process I’m excited about. But it’s also a challenge for me, to be at this level and still be able to connect with somebody who’s living that everyday life.”
Dave Chappelle also admits that he heard about Kendrick after being put on by Yasiin Bey (fka Mos Def). Dave Chappelle returned to broadcasted standup this year with specials going on Netflix for a reportedly record-breaking deal.
