During the interview, Rapsody talked about her nominations, the state of female MCs, and her relationship with Kendrick Lamar, who famously put her on “Complexion (A Zulu Love)” off of To Pimp a Butterfly.

When asked what makes Kendrick special, Rapsody said:

“The honesty in his music, he has no fear and he’s himself. He doesn’t chase anything, but what he sees in the mirror, I think that’s what makes him special.”
