Read a conversation between Dave Chappelle and Kendrick Lamar

For the August issue of Interview Magazine, Dave Chappelle interviewed Kendrick Lamar.

Their conversation covers a range of topics including Kathy Griffin, visits to Africa and the inner-workings of DAMN.

Kendrick discusses his development as an artist and an individual, telling Chappelle, “I think I’m still growing. The more people I meet, the more cultures I start to embrace, the more people I open myself up to—it’s a growing process I’m excited about. But it’s also a challenge for me, to be at this level and still be able to connect with somebody who’s living that everyday life.”

Dave Chappelle also admits that he heard about Kendrick after being put on by Yasiin Bey (fka Mos Def).

Dave Chappelle returned to broadcasted standup this year with specials going on Netflix for a reportedly record-breaking deal.
