A viral sketch imagines the challenges of being Kendrick Lamar's personal engineer.
Rapper, producer, and comic Crank Lucas imagines what it would be like to be an engineer in the studio with Kendrick in a hilarious new viral video, properly titled "WHY I COULDN'T ENGINEER KENDRICK LAMAR." Lucas acts as both Kendrick and his engineer, who scrambles to keep up with multiple beat change-ups while trying to manipulate Kendrick's vocals mid-bar.
"I want you to take the beat, right, but drop the snare out of it -- and replace it with Erykah Badu sneezing," Kendrick demands of the engineer, who replies, "I don't get paid enough for this shit."
For real though, shout-out to MixedByAli, who has played an indispensable role in creating TDE's amazing catalog.
