Vanity Fair has been blessed with a Kendrick Lamar cover, complete with an expansive photo history piece and accompanying interview focused on his recent history-making Pulitzer honor.
Bagging a Pulitzer, Lamar explained, was something he never thought would happen. “[When I heard I got it], I thought, to be recognized in an academic world . . . whoa, this thing really can take me above and beyond,” he told writer Lisa Robinson. “It’s one of those things that should have happened with hip-hop a long time ago. It took a long time for people to embrace us—people outside of our community, our culture—to see this not just as vocal lyrics, but to see that this is really pain, this is really hurt, this is really true stories of our lives on wax.”

This another L for Russ.
boring useless content as usual
Fraizer's tee. The man knew. SCORPION
Kendrick Lamar is a sell out
TBH Kanye meant by slavery by a choice is that blacks chose not to out power the whites and go peacefully. With the population of slaves, they mightve bee. Able to out power the whites, it's a mistranslated sentence
THIS VIDEO WAS SO SHORT AND POINTLESS
How many more songs do they have lol? Four or Fourty?
Shut up Frazier
Kanye is allowed to have his own opinion. Just because you are black does not mean you have to be a democrat. Ye and Kids see Ghosts are the best albums so far of 2018.
I wish Obama would apologize for hurting Kanye's little feelings so he can stop this bullshit
Why do I want to hit you so bad
Y’all milking the fuck outta Kanye.
Honestly, I agree with Kanye’s thing. I don’t like Trump, but I agree with Kanye saying that we need to come together and not view all trump supporters as racist.
Everyone that isn't getting airtime with Kanye is salty. I'm a big Budden fan but as soon as he speaks on Kanye , he sounds salty. Same thing with ebro, Rosenbitch and everyday struggles bozos. I find it hilarious. They're trying to stop a culture.
Why is Frazier such a goddamn SNACK
Frazier’s idol is trump
Frazier does every video in one take😂
See this is a reasonable and mature response.
BLM is jewish owned
hold on, so he accepts that kanye has a different perspective when it comes to politics but doesnt hold the same level of understanding when he invited that woman up into his stage fully knowing that she might (and she did) said that "one word she cannot say", wherein her perspective was that it was okay to say it because it was in the context of the song, not a racist remark?
starting to get tired of frazier
SLAVERY WAS A CHOICE, IT’S CALLED NATURAL SELECTION
Change my mind , convince me on why trump is racist, sexist, homophobic and all the things liberals think and say that he is, if you give me concrete reasons, ill be objectic and agree with you, because i see a great campaign from Donald
Don't let you distract you from the fact that Pusha T completely murdered Drake. RIP Drake.
Modelo comercial of two white people telling mexico to have hope😂 im dead 💀 not ir falt what is going on on the country bit seriously so dum how bout donovan stend up for mexicans like kapernick kneeled for justice naw he aint going to fuck up his 💰 but will talk to us baut hope😂
Lol, why everybody hate Frazier? What he do?
Kanye is right. Dont be monolithic or slave to other people's values and the current thought trend or to consumerism. Do your own values.
Wanna hear a oxymoron: frazier look like a giant midget 😀
Kendrick isn't trying "to get his white audience mad" he actually understands people can have their own opinions…And shouldnt get bombarded with hate if they think something differetnly
So R we still mad at ye or nah?
I would love to slap this guy frazier
Kdot and kanye were always overrated
Joe "Agree to Disagree" Rog…whoops wrong video
