VEVO does a segment, apparently, called ":60 With" where they spend a minute with an artist and fire off a series of quick questions. Kendrick Lamar is the latest subject of their ":60 With" series, which you can watch above. Among the brief question and answers, Kendrick chooses his favorite letter between "I" and "U"(he chooses "U"), he describes his "King Kunta" instrumental in three words ("aggressive, harsh, unapologetic"), which Tupac track he'd like to drop a verse on ("Ambitionz Of A Ridah") and the new track he's most excited to perform live ("Wesley's Theory").

While it's very easy to be driven into a freakout by paparazzi, one must remember that there is one tried-and-true way to get rabid photographers to back down-- give them a taste of their own medicine. Kendrick Lamar did just that as he was leaving LAX today, filming a TMZ cameraman with his phone, and getting his whole squad to do the same. Not only is it hilarious, it makes the cameraman pretty uncomfortable, which is a W for Lamar on multiple levels. Of course, if all else fails, you can always send the paps after ScHoolboy Q.

Not every rapper gets to perform on Ellen, but the positive message and undeniable talent displayed on Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly caught the ear of the TV host, who brought him on yesterday to perform a highlight from the project, "These Walls". Usually backed by a band, K-Dot stood alone on the stage this time around, using a backing track, but delivering a performance electrifying enough to sell it.

The West Coast has always been a hotbed for rap, but over the last couple of years, we've seen quite a few big names come out of the region. Quite a few of those artists have been linked in some way to DJ Mustard, and his punchy brand of Cali-meets-Bay Area bounce. Jay 305 has been operating within that scene for some time, but a trip to jail meant he missed out on some of the first breaks for the sound.

We recently found out that the song Kendrick Lamar performed on The Colbert Report was written specifically for the show, and a recorded version will never see the light of day.

Of all the seemingly harebrained, dream scenarios that rap fans dream, up a Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole joint album is one of the craziest. The thing is, both artists have lent credibility to the rumors by saying they've recorded together a lot in the past and dropping hints every now and then. The latest of these comes in Kendrick Lamar's interview on Hot 97 on the day of his announcement as a Summer Jam headliner.
