Kendrick Lamar is a great influence to aspiring rappers. He defies the notion that rapping about drugs and violence is cool. In an interview with MTV News, he tackles the topic of rappers using the street drug, molly, in their lyrics.

“Sometimes you have the trends that’s not cool,” said K-Dot. “You may have certain artists portraying these trends and don’t really have that lifestyle, and then it gives off the wrong thing, and it becomes kinda corny after a while.”

Lamar also believes Hip Hop will continue to have a bad image if his colleagues intentionally use the term.

“When everybody consciously now uses this term or this phrase and putting it in lyrics, it waters the culture down.”

K-Dot will bring down the house in the Cap City this Thursday night. The Good Kid Mad City Tour invades the Washington Avenue Armory. Opening acts include Jay Rock, Ab-Soul and SchoolboyQ.  Kendrick was recently named MTV's Hottest MC in the Game.
