Kendrick Lamar talks Coachella, highly influenced by Tropical House on latest album DAMN.
Kendrick is stoked to headline Coachella today. Last year, he had a spiritual awakening at the Do Lab. He heard Kygo play a surprise set. Kendrick took a molly and a percocet and next thing you know he was found backstage body painting and chanting the lyrics of his newest hit song DNA off the album DAMN. That night some ratchet chick vomited on his laptop and his cap locks key got stuck.
Kendrick tweeted, “Tropical house gon get my niggas out the hood.” The upbeat and happy chords of Tropical House layered with gangster hood raps from Comptom create a cultural blend of joy and angst. Kendrick and Kygo plan on collaborating more in the Summer of 2017.
