In a recent tell-all interview with British-style magazine iD, Kendrick Lamar opens up about his journey to stardom and credits his current manager Dave Free, his then 10th grade teacher. The Black Hippy goes on to talk about his current stance in hip-hop post the insatiable success garnered by his Good Kid, m.A.A.d city LP. K. Dot also reveals what fans can expect in his upcoming work. When asked how he was enjoying his visit to the UK, the rapper admitted to enjoying the dreary weather, which aids in his creative process.

“I love it. Y’all weather’s a bit gloomy right now, I like gloomy weather,” said K. Dot. “I work best and do most of my album under gloomy weather, so you’ll hear a lot of dark tracks in there.”
