Here are Kendrick Lamar’s best Quotes of all the time:
On being a role model
I think one of my biggest battles within myself is embracing leadership. You always grow up and you hate the term “role model.” You would say, “I don’t wanna be a role model. I don’t want none of that.”… It’s impossible to fight the title of role model. Especially when the type of music I make is so personal.”
I hate the word “famous.” I’m aware of it. I know people treat me different because of it. And the more I am aware of that and play into it, the more I become detached from the real world. So it’s really about balance.
I’m always paranoid. I’m already a person who thinks a lot; sometimes I may overthink things or think too much. So when you’re put into a space where you feel like you can’t necessarily trust your close ones that can do some whole other crazy thing to you psychologically. Seriously. All you got is you and God at the end of the day.
I always thought confirmation would be having a lot of money, and things I could do for my family. Because that was what we was taught when you come from these urban neighborhoods. … So once I got the money and everything else that comes with it, I felt like I wasn’t satisfied … but I don’t even spend it on myself, I spend it on my loved ones. That makes me feel good knowing I can support somebody that’s in need.
