Pharrell compares Kendrick Lamar to Bob Dylan

By The Hip Hop Writer

A lot of expectations weigh upon the shoulders of Kendrick Lamar, who has redefined what many considered Los Angeles hip hop. Kendrick Lamar owns a style that is completely his own. While Kendrick Lamar is inspired by those who came before him, such as Dr. Dre, MC Eiht, and Game, he is unlike anyone who came before him.

Game would give Kendrick Lamar a major co-sign in 2011, featuring him on “The City,” the standout track on The R.E.D. Album. After working with Game, Kendrick Lamar began working with Dr. Dre. This work would lead to Kendrick Lamar signing with Aftermath and the Top Dawg label entered a deal with Interscope Records.

Pharrell is among the people working with Kendrick Lamar. Earlier today, after concluding a session with Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell made a major comparison. In rap, Kendrick Lamar has a style all to himself, but this is not the case in general music. Bob Dylan is who Pharrell thinks Kendrick Lamar is a present day version of.
