Kendrick Lamar is seemingly giving radio and major media outlets the most access he has since the Section.80 days this week. The Compton, California MC—whose To Pimp A Butterfly held the #1 spot on charts for a second consecutive week—appeared on Los Angeles’ Power 106′ The Cruz Show.

Talking at the first radio station in the region to play his music, the TDE platinum star bemoans the closing of the Compton Swap Meet. He recalls buying Nate Dogg’s 1997 single there on cassette tape, and pokes fun at his father’s “doo-doo brown” Chevy Astro van.

K-Dot reflects on his trip to South Africa, discusses race, the work he’s doing presently in the studio, and the value of Kanye West’s and Snoop Dogg’s support.

To close, Kendrick channels some bars that were intended to be on T.P.A.B., but left off. Heads don’t get everything, but they get a nice dose of his thoughtful bars. Even Kendrick’s cutting room would rival plenty of MC’s best pages, eh?
