blame it on Meka August 1, 2011

Sitting down with Complex, K-Dot opens up about Dr. Dre, Skateboard P, weed and more.

Kendrick: One of my biggest things that I didn’t want to do for “HiiiPoWeR” was just make it a race thing. I wanted to make it for a bigger goal in mind and that’s to stand above all the bullshit, that’s what those people did. So when I say “HiiiPoWeR,” I’m representing everybody that’s trying to escape the negatives in the world and do something positive with their life and stand for something bigger that’s going to live forever, just like they people did.

Ab-Soul: I’ll tell you something else about that record too. Originally it was called “Black HiiiPoWeR.” But we were like, we don’t like that attitude of HiiiPoWeR. It’s got to be larger.
