Dubbed as "the greatest rapper of alive" by the magazine, Lamar exudes sheer candor throughout his in-depth interview, as he touches on Donald Trump, ghostwriters, his ubiquitous single "Humble" and more. While many of his peers have unabashedly torched the newly named president for his recent debacles, Lamar has remained mum on the situation. According to him, touching on Trump's "miscues" would be equivalent to "beating a dead horse."
"I mean, it's like beating a dead horse. We already know what it is. Are we gonna keep talking about it or are we gonna take action?" Lamar boldly asks. "You just get to a point where you're tired of talking about it. It weighs you down and it drains your energy when you're speaking about something or someone that's completely ridiculous. So, on and off the album, I took it upon myself to take action in my own community. On the record, I made an action to not speak about what's going on in the world or the places they put us in. Speak on self; reflection of self first. That's where the initial change will start from."
