Kendrick Lamar Shares Story Behind “Sing About Me” (Video)

blame it on Shake October 24, 2012

Continuing the ongoing Kendrick coverage, MTV asks the Compton kid about track 10 from good kid, m.A.A.d city (which the Shyne has called “trash”).

“Sing About Me” is definitely a true song. First verse is speaking from my partner talkin’ to me, speakin’ on a story of how I was there when his brother passed and I got to watch him take his last breath.

“Keisha’s Song” is a real song too, and what I didn’t understand was the fact that she had a younger sister. I met her sister and she went at me about her sister Keisha, basically saying she didn’t want her to put her business out there and if your album do come out, don’t mention me, don’t sing about me.

We also sat down with Kendrick the same night in Vegas. Look for the first part (of two) to hit the DopeHouse tomorrow morning.
