Video Spotlight: Kendrick Lamar Interview

Written by Linda Park | September 13, 2013

Kendrick Lamar was one of the most talked about and anticipated artists of this year's music conference and festival.

Hailing from Compton, the straight A high school student is known for his lyrical prowess and a swagger that is at times dark and thoughtful.

In this clip from his SXSW 2013 Interview, Lamar talks about crew unity and brotherly bonds, Martin Luther King Jr, and the work that goes into the work.
