Kendrick Lamar Makes His Freshman 2012 Class Picks
All will be revealed today (February 28) at noon but in the meantime, class of 2011's Kendrick Lamar gives XXLMag.com his guesstimate on who will be a part of the Freshman 2012 class.
“Schoolboy Q,” Kendrick suggested to XXL. "Not just because he's in my camp, but the drama he brings on every record. A$AP Rocky, Danny Brown… Who am I missing? Cassie Veggies, Childish Gambino… We were talking about this the other night. We were debating…. French Montana, yup. Those are the names that stick out in my head right now.”
Kendrick has definitely lived up to the hype as a blue chipper with a string of lauded underground records and guest appearances on LPs by The Game (The R.E.D. Album) and Drake (Take Care), to list a few. K. dot is currently on Drizzy’s Club Paradise tour with fellow openers A$AP Rocky and The Weeknd. That trek goes on through the Spring in the states and internationally. In the meantime, Lamar is working on his long anticipated solo LP.
"Gearing up right now trying to finish this album," he said of his new music. "I should put out some new music soon. I don’t want to give no time frame for it." —Shaheem Reid @ShaheemReid
