Kendrick Lamar says he's competitive with all emcees, including Jay-Z, Nas and Kanye West. He also says "good kid, m.A.A.d. city" will be a "classic" in time.

With Kendrick Lamar in Europe, the good kid emcee participated in a round table interview. While in France, K. Dot spoke with US Rap News about good kid, m.A.A.d. city being a classic and the competitive nature amongst emcees.

"Classic represents five years, 10 years at a time," he said when discussing his new album's "classic" status. "It's classic worthy right now. It will be a classic. Ain't nothing missing from it to be a classic. It's just time that's missing."

Lamar also went on to explain the competitive nature that he has as an emcee.

"It's the competitive nature. We can't forget that. We can do features with each other. We can rap with each other. But at the end of the day, you gotta want to be the best," he explained. "I'm definitely competitive with [Black Hippy]. I'm competitive with them. I'm competitive with Jay-Z. I'm competitive with Nas. I'm competitive with Kanye [West]. We're in the big leagues now. I can't be looking at them as big homies for the rest of my life."

Kendrick concluded his interview by naming what he believes to be are the three most influential songs to come out of the city of Compton.

“Of course ‘Straight Outta Compton’ cause I heard that too many times inside the house. ‘Sweet Black pus-y,’ DJ Quik. ‘Straight Up Menace,’ [MC] Eiht,” said the rapper.

look like shyne is right... the d!ck riding has him talking crazy....


Nas an Jay was around during a period where If you played that new gucci, waka flaka, lil wayne, nikki. They'd get boo'd off stage. The hip hop game wants a lyrical rapper. So it's not that K-dot is a legend currently just the state the game in right now makes him look like a GOD. Kinda like 50 cent's thug perception after Pac's death with get rich or die trying..

K-dots album is great. Exactly what hip hop needs. But it's highly over rated and is far from a Legendary Classic Album..........
