Game shows more support for the Compton rapper in a recent interview, and compares him to Nas.
Kendrick Lamar's debut album good kid, m.A.A.d city, hit shelves last week and was welcomed with open arms by many hip-hop heads. Game showed his support for the good kid by taking to his defense in the wake of Shyne's diss.Â
He congratulates Kendrick and is happy to see his hard work pay off. "Itâs really dope to see hard work pay off, somebody that I helped shape and mold,"Â Game said.Â "I remember when I told K-Dot that K-Dot just wasnât goingÂ to workÂ and he should just change his name to Kendrick, and he did that, and next thing you know itâs Aftermath and people are checking and bitches are like, âKendrick, Kendrick.â"
He goes on to compare Kendrick to Nas, "Kendrick is like our West Coast Nas, so to speakâlyrically amazing,"Â he said. He then adds a warning to other rappers-- "I hope no one ever beefs or tries to attack him lyrically. You will definitelyÂ lose. His mind is crazy."
Finally, he draws comparisons from his career to Kendrick's.Â Â "HisÂ careerÂ is real reminiscent of my early start, minus theÂ bandanna. Kendrick is neutral in this. Thatâs our West Coast Nas and everyone should support that."
