Kendrick Lamar talks family life on VEVO Lift [Video]

In the latest instalment of the VEVO Lift series, Kendrick Lamar takes us down to the westside of Compton to give us a look at the neighbourhood where he was brought up.

We are given an up close and personal look at the kitchen where his first independent album, Section.80, was written, and get to hear K-Dot explain the influence his parents had on his musical taste as he says.

“They played everything from gangsta rap to oldies,” he said. “You would hear Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre and then Marvin Gaye on the next track.”
