Kendrick Lamar Reveals XXL Freshmen Picks, Talks Touring With Drake, “Cartoon & Cereal” Video

    Oh look, another Kendrick Lamar post. Just before this year’s XXL Freshmen were unveiled, the Compton rapper (and one of last year’s Freshmen) nominated his own picks for the compulsively debatable fifth-annual list. “Schoolboy Q,” Lamar told XXL itself, “not just because he’s in my camp, but the drama he brings on every record. A$AP Rocky, Danny Brown… Who am I missing? Cassie Veggies, Childish Gambino… We were talking about this the other night. We were debating…. French Montana, yup. Those are the names that stick out in my head right now.” Like just about everybody else, Lamar must have been a little dissatisfied with the actual list, as only two of those MCs made it.

    In other Lamar news, dude recently gave a video interview with 3 Little Digs in which he talked about touring with Drake on the Club Paradise tour and his plans to shoot a video for “Cartoon and Cereal,” his ballyhooed, Gunplay-featuring new track. Check out the clip below.
