Kendrick Lamar Explains How Interscope Backed Him Up Fully
Kendrick Lamar states that Interscope backed him up full and there was “no compromise at all” when he became a new artist for the record label. In his recent interview with MTV News, Kendrick Lamar spoke directly about his moves when he got questioned.
In the interview with MTV News, Kendrick Lamar explained how the record label didn’t pressure him at all and they made no compromise at all when it came to making music.
“People tell me this every day, I was in a blessed position,” said Kendrick. “No compromise at all. They told me to go, continue what I’m doing – Interscope, Dre. Continue doing what I’m doing. And I think that just comes from them having faith in the music, them believing in the foundation that we built from the ground up, and not wanting to lose that foundation. So many people say, ‘Well I was hearing…he signed to which-a-call-it. I know it’s about to happen now. He’s finna come with something left.’ But at the whole time this was already premeditated how we was gon’ come.”
He also talked about the support he was receiving from Dr. Dre when he first got signed to the record label. He also stated that Dr. Dre seemed confident in him and started to ask him to make music in the first week he got signed to the label.
“In so many words you know what Dre said…this probably like my first week after being signed to him. He said, ‘You know what? You ready. Ain’t no need developing you or being over your shoulders. You already ready. How long do you think you’re gonna take to build this album,’” Kendrick explained.
