Over the weekend, Complexcon hosted both NBA legend Kobe Bryant and hip hop luminary Kendrick Lamar for a conversation about their respective journeys to greatness. The 15 minute conversation with Complex’s Jinx covers Kobe’s journey from 8 to 24 and Kendrick’s quest for respect from K Dot to Kung Fu Kenny.
Kung Fu Kenny drops by to assist Rich The Kid in the video for “New Freezer” as the pair drops rhymes with fancy whips and a store where booties shaking is what’s for sale.
Rapsody drops the official video for “Power” and it’s all about embracing blackness. Although Kendrick Lamar wasn’t able to film his verse, the video doesn’t slow down as it rolls into GQ’s verse from “Ridin.”
YG Hootie and Kendrick Lamar connect for the anthemic “My City” off of Hootie’s Hubris project dropping in November.
“Compton gets a lot of bad press which shapes the perception of our city, but most never know George Bush and his family once resided here,” YG Hootie says of the cover art. “They even went as far to suppress the fact, but you gotta give it up for The City.”
Kendrick Lamar lends the verbal assist to Rick The Kid on “New Freezer.”
Skrillex gives Kendrick Lamar’s “Humble” a toss into the remix machine and pumps out a song that’s ready for all of the rambunctious festivals where glow sticks are waved in the air.
To set the table for Laila’s Wisdom dropping, Rapsody drops an absolute banger off the album with “Power.” The Jamla emcee trades bars with Kendrick Lamar over a ridiculously savage beat from 9th Wonder. There are so many quotables that you’ll have a hard time picking one. Get Laila’s Wisdom, you won’t be disappointed.
DJ Kay Slay recruits Kendrick Lamar, Kevin Gates and Mac Miller for his joint from his upcoming album The Big Brother.
Kung Fu Kenny continued to take the industry by storm with his performance at the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles. In the midst of his DAMN tour, Kendrick performed a medley of “DNA” and “Humble” with burning ninjas.
Kung Fu Kenny is back with another set of visuals from his critically acclaimed DAMN album. The video is “Loyalty” featuring Rihanna and you get to see Kendrick Lamar scrap with a big guy, have a standoff with himself and prove his loyalty to Rihanna in some interesting ways.
