"And The GQ Rapper Of The Year Is..."

Kendrick Lamar is definitely the next king of the rap game or at least GQ Magazine thinks so! The rapper was recently announced as the magazine's "Rapper of the Year" in the annual "Men of the Year" issue! We know for sure that this new title has a few rappers feeling some type of way, but nothing in the world could kill Kendrick Lamar's vibe right now! 

In the issue Kendrick discusses Drake, his next album, and remaining humble!

On still remaining humble:

"From my perspective, I'm not just famous--I still live in this world. And when someone back home needs something I still gotta get that phone call."

On Drake's reaction to "Control":

"Yeah, I guess he took it as a dis."

On if he looks up to Drake:

"No--peer. If anything. We all peers."

On Tupac appearing to him in a vision:

"I was coming from a late studio session, sleeping on Mom's couch. I'm 26 now--it wasn't that long ago. I remember being tired, tripping from the studio, lying down, and falling into a deep sleep and seeing a vision of Pac talking to me. Weirdest shit ever. I'm not huge on superstition and all that shit. That's what made it so crazy. It can make you go nuts. Hearing somebody that you looked up to for years saying, 'Don't let the music die.' Hearing it clear as day. Clear as day. Like he's right there. Just a silhouette."

On changing his outlook:

"It wasn't just about the money, hos, clothes, drinkin. I mean, I come from that world, but at the same time, I started to realize that there's people out there that can't really connect to that lifestyle. They're in the struggle."

On what he will discuss on his next album:

"I don't know. It depends on where my emotion is. How angry I'll be, or how happy I'll be, or how confused I'll be."
