Chris Rock talks music, comedy, current events and more for a new interview with Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning crew. Currently promoting his headlining standup tour, Rock sat down with Laura Stylez and Peter Rosenberg to bring attention to the remaining — and newly-announced — shows of his 2017 cross-country trek. Most notably, the iconic comedian and actor had a few interesting remarks regarding the new Kendrick Lamar album and some of hip-hop’s other greats. “I feel this album is really good,” Chris Rock says of DAMN. “It’s kind of like [Outkast's] Aquemini or something. It gets better with each listen, and there’s different layers to it. You listen to “Pride?” Wooooh. You gotta read. When you gotta punch up the lyrics and read so you don’t miss nothin? Nah, he’s on a whole ‘nother [level] … Kendrick’s one of these guys that — he doesn’t even have to listen to what’s pop. He’s pop. He’s so good, it’s like ‘this is pop now.’” Chris Rock also believes that Kendrick Lamar has already “entered the conversation” when it comes to the “greatest of all time.”
