blame it on JES7 March 22, 2015

It’s been quite the month for Kendrick Lamar, and we can only assume that he’s still on cloud 9 since the (premature) release of his sophomore album, To Pimp A Butterfly and it’s subsequent high praise and record breaking that followed in it’s wake.

Saturday, March 21st, legions of fans hurried over to the Best Buy in Compton and stood in line, waiting for their chance to get their physical copies of the album signed by the highly revered Compton emcee.

“It feels good to be back in my city, to go out here and see these kids still motivated by my music and by my dreams and aspirations,” Kendrick told ABC7. “I wanna say thank you. Thank you for believing in me since day one. I’ve been doing my thing on the underground scene for years, you know, proud to be putting out any albums. These the same people that have been rocking with me so I want to say thank you for believing in me and I believe in you the same, so as long as we believe in each other, I will continue to do this music,” he humbly continued in a special message to his fans.
