"From Compton, I could have easily came and said, 'I did this. I did that. I killed a whole bunch of n*ggas.' Just giving off facts from where I'm from," stated Kendrick. "But that ain't me. I rather talk about my reality. I rather talk about something a little bit deeper than that. The reasons, problems, and solutions behind it."

Kendrick used his latest album To Pimp A Butterfly to talk about serious topics like police brutality, crime, poverty, and self-love. The LP earned him 4 Grammys, including Best Rap Album.
