In case you missed it, Kendrick Lamar was trending big time this past Tuesday because of the release of “i,”an upbeat, track based on live instrumentation and an Isley Brothers sample. The news of this new tune with classic influences turned every head in the music business, including ours. Naturally, we dug what he was doing, and since we didn’t have one of our own, we thought it would be cool to tip our hats to one of the best, and highlight The Voice host, Carson Daly’s.
Although he had to apologize to the Compton based rapper for taking ups so much time, it appeared to be well worth it. Carson snagged a very passionate interview with Kendrick about the new song, his creative process, and music as a whole. The two got their music nerd on, and totally geeked out on CBS’s 97.1 AMP earlier this week, and Kendrick hinted at plans to release a yet to be titled new album before next year.
