Video: Kendrick Lamar Names His Top 5 Rappers

Kendrick Lamar recently got with radio personality Nessa AKA Ness Nitty (talked to her, I mean he spoke with her) from the Yay Area’s Wild 94.9 and in the mix of their conversation, TAFKA K.Dot names his Top 5 dead-or-alive MCs. Three are alive, two are here in spiritual essence and nobody will be shocked to know that 2pac sits atop the number 1 spot. But at least one of the others may surprise you, though all are widely-acknowledged greats. Watch above to get Kendrick’s breakdown for each pick and also learn his favorite cartoon and favorite cereal–a side note in which he seems (?) to reveal that the name of his forthcoming album will be, duh, Cartoons & Cereal.
