Kendrick Lamar Speaks On Mumble Raps Impact On Hip Hop

Published

on

Kendrick Lamar has reached icon status in what seems like a short time. Kendrick is the voice of the people in the age of mumble rap. Even Eminem is struggling with the impact mumble rap is having on Hip Hop. In his latest single “Walk on Water“, was created out of the frustration with the lack of artistry with mumble rap.

Producer Rick Rubin spoke about how mumble rap was impacting Em, “For him, it’s a little bit of culture shock because there’s a new wave of hip-hop that’s not really what he’s about, so he was just talking to me about how that felt,” Rubin said. “I could see he was frustrated by it.”

But for Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar this seems to be a none issue. In an interview Forbes, Lamar discusses his views on artist like Lil Yachty and 21 Savage.  Kendrick feels that its new direction for Hip Hop, but the mumble rappers need to respect the trendsetters.

“I can’t shun a lot of the artists that may not be a Kendrick Lamar,” he said of so-called “mumble rappers” who are helping “evolve” the genre in his eyes. “I tell them every time I see them … be yourself and do what you do but also know who laid down the groundwork. Don’t go on your interviews and dis them and say you don’t like them and you don’t care for them. That’s your opinion, that’s cool but you have to respect them,” he told Forbes writer Zack O’Malley Greenburg.

Kendrick also recalled him making a terrible single to be get on the radio and not letting it stop him from evolving as an artist.  “I think when I made a terrible single, and that shit was just garbage…I wasn’t aware that that was my highest point because I got back in there and I did it all over again, and continued to push through. That’s when I realized I really wanna do this, because I ain’t give up when I made a terrible ass song.”
