Rick Rubin Interviews Kendrick Lamar // 50 Minutes Epic Conversation (Video)
Grandioses, fast einstündiges Interview mit AlltimeBiggestInfluencerMusicGod Rick Rubin (feature – remember Zane Lowe? Same Location) und dem BringinBackLyricismInRapGod Kendrick Lamar (feature). Unter uns: ich hätte mir diese 50 Minuten auch reingezogen, wenn die beiden nur 4 gewinnt gespielt hätten. Dass da aber nun so ein gehaltvoller, inhaltsschwerer, inspirierender Dialog bei herauskommt – umso besser. Nach dem Konsumieren dieses Interviews und nach dem Begreifen könnt Ihr direkt 80% Eurer aktuellen HipHop-Platten wegschmeissen; Ladies & Gentlemen, hier kommt die Essenz:
„When we introduced K.Dot to Double-R at Shangri-La Studios in Malibu, conversational fireworks flew. Hit play, and come away inspired.“
Rick Rubin: It’s really interesting now, with what’s going on in hip-hop. It’s almost like you’re a throwback to when lyrics mattered. So much of hip-hop today is about vibe and swag and personality, and less about words. And it sometimes sounds like even the MC doesn’t know what he’s saying on a lot of today’s records. So it’s interesting to hear the sort of clarity and depth that you go into lyrically.
Kendrick Lamar: The clarity, I got my clarity just studying Eminem when I was a kid. How I got in the studio was all just curiosity. I had a love for the music, but it was curiosity. The day I heard The Marshall Mathers LP, I was just like, How does that work? What is he doing? How is he putting his words together like that? What’s the track under that? An ad-lib? What is that? And then, Why don’t you go in the studio and see? So I do that. Then it became, How’s his words cutting through the beat like that? What is he doing that I’m not doing, now that I’m into it? His time is impeccable. When he wants to fall off the beat, it’s impeccable. These are things that, through experience and time, I had to learn.
