When you’ve written as many great verses as Kendrick Lamar, picking out your best is no easy feat but that’s what K-Dot has gone and done. The Compton rapper, in a recent interview with i-D Magazine, revealed that he felt that his words on “FEAR.” — a song from his latest album DAMN. — were his most honest and ergo the greatest he’d ever written.
Kendrick says that “the first verse is everything that I feared from the time that I was seven years old. The second verse I was 17, in the third it’s everything I feared when I was 27. These verses are completely honest.” In the song, he raps about fearing everything from his parents to the world at large.
Kung-Fu Kenny also pays homage to his close-knit circle of friends who always provided him with constructive yet real feedback. He cites this candid feedback as a fundamental reason his music reached the “next level.”
