Kendrick Lamar Says His First Studio Session With Dr. Dre Was Surreal

As an installment in Budwiser’s “Made Me” series Kendrick Lamar speaks on meeting Dr. Dre for the first time. Divulging on their first studio session, Kendrick tells that working with the rap legend was in fact surreal and served as the inspiration behind his verse on their collaborative anthem “Compton”.

“I remember that shit sounded so loud”, said Kendrick. “To this day it hasn’t been not one studio session that can match a Dr. Dre studio session”. He continues speaking on realization of it all stating, “that song’s about my city so from knowing where I was at five-six years ago in Compton to being with somebody that birthed Compton gangsta rap, I knew I could draw from all types of emotions in that studio session”.
