Kendrick Lamar has always been a huge Lil Wayne fan coming up, and he’s never held-back in letting the world know this. His appreciation for the hiphop legend has been well-publicized over the years, with Kdot speaking highly of Wayne whenever questioned. Talking to writer Noah Lehava while out in Manchester, England, in a new interview for The Coveteur, Kendrick responds with the following when speaking about Wayne:
“Yeah, man, we was heavy. That’s a real story like, we was just huge, still to this day, huge Lil Wayne fans. Lil Wayne is the greatest. Not only because of his music but also because of the culture he put behind it. It was a big part of what he was talking about, so we always hold Lil Wayne in high regards. Juvenile as well. And yeah, it’s the impact of them man. To be a part of it the same way he was a part of it years later is just a great feeling.”
After seeing the TDE rapper’s remarks, Lil Wayne took to Twitter to voice his response. Wayne appeared to have nothing but respect for the Compton native. “Kendrick Lamar a real one #Respek,” Lil Wayne tweeted.
