Kendrick Lamar Meets Rick Rubin, They Have an Epic Conversation

When GQ introduced K.Dot to Double-R at Shangri-La Studios in Malibu, conversational fireworks flew. Hit play, and come away inspired.

For the cover story of the holiday issue of GQ Style, we invited Rick Rubin to ask Kendrick Lamar whatever questions he wanted for our cameras—and the producer didn’t waste the opportunity. The result? A wide-ranging conversation about music, success, growth, integrity, and Kendrick’s inspirations, including Eminem and Dr. Dre. The other result? New music. Because after the interview, the two musicians brought our cameras into the studio with them for their first collaboration. Pull up a chair and watch musical history unfold.
