Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. album is most definately one of the top-selling albums of 2017, and it surely has a good chance of winning some major awards over the next year. The rapper’s label mate, SZA, agrees.
In the conversation, SZA, Julia Michaels and Khalid are asked who they believe should win Album of the Year at next year’s Grammy Awards ceremony, to which the CTRL singer responds with K. Dot and his latest release.
“Dot [Kendrick Lamar]. I don’t know Ed personally, though I love him and his music. But I watched [her Top Dawg labelmate Lamar’s] process — he’s a true, genuine genius. Dot doesn’t play any instruments, but he designed and produced his whole album. From scratch. Like… it’s too much. It’s too incredible. I’ve never witnessed anyone do that, except for maybe Frank [Ocean]. It’s past due. He’s the most inspiring person I’ve ever met in my entire life.”
Khalid also mentions that the album was “necessary” in the conversation, being that the world is in the place that it is. The artists also talk about race and gender relations in the country, and women are represented in the industry.
