Kendrick Lamar Talks Obsession With Eminem

Posted By on November 4, 2013

TDE standout Kendrick Lamar recently talked about his obsession with Eminem and how they both linked up for their new “Love Game” collaboration.

Lamar revealed that he first met Marshall at the annual music festival Coachella.

“The first time I met Em was through [music festival] Coachella,” Lamar revealed in an interview. “Yeah, that was the first time I met him. We spoke briefly so I didn’t really get to hang with him. Then on my second time around, I got to go to Detroit and actually chill with him and vibe out. That was way before the record, so, I think that was like the first introduction, getting to sit down and actually talk to him and ask him questions I always wanted to ask.” (“Whoolywood”)

K.Dot also discussed his love for Em back in high school.

“That just comes from being a fan from day one. It wasn’t really something I could do overnight. It’s from me being in ninth grade and studying all of the albums, the Marshall Mathers LP and Slim Shady, coming from that era and then finally getting to meet him. It’s just one of those types of things. I already knew the type of wizard he already was. When I finally got into the studio with him, I had to bring my A-game.” (“Whoolywood”)
