Tyler, the Creator took a moment to share his appreciation and admiration for Kendrick Lamar and his new album Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers, explaining that the Compton rapper’s honesty is an important focus on raising this generation.

During his latest Converse All Star Series panel, the CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST artist first opened up about how honesty is changing the way younger kids handle their relationships. “I think honesty is awesome — with yourself, with [other] people… I think when you’re making something, it doesn’t have to be so obvious, but just being honest with how you’re approaching shit is when the best shit comes,” Tyler shared. “N****s don’t know how to give each other hugs and I hope we get past that. We will, though. The younger kids is like, ‘What’s up, bro? You good?’ We gotta cut the bullshit and just start being super open and honest.”

He then explained that K-Dot’s latest work may put off some listeners who refuse to get in touch with their own emotions, “I love that album, but I feel like he touches on shit that’s so, like, open and honest that some people can’t listen to it because they probably feel like he’s looking at them in their eyes and they’re like, ‘Oh, I can’t panic. Uhhh, I can’t listen to this. Put on something else so I can hit my dougie.’ And keep forgetting and numbing the shit that he’s talking about.” Tyler continued, “Not saying the people that’s doing that went through what he’s saying, but it’s making them think about the shit that they’re covering up with that f*cking, ‘I’m hard, I shoot people’ shit. I see it, I see through it.”

Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and briefly held the record for biggest opening week of 2022. It marks his first album since DAMN.

Watch the full discussion above.

In related news, Tyler, the Creator publicly praised Pharrell, calling him the “greatest of all time.”
