Kendrick Lamar Reveals Text His Mom Sent Him About 'Damn.' Album

Kendrick Lamar’s new album, Damn., is getting high praises from a lot of people, including the Compton rapper’s mom.

The “Humble” MC recently revealed a text he received from mom dukes about her thoughts on the album, and it’s pretty great.

“OMG. This CD is the bombbbb!,” she started. “You should of put me and your daddy on this one too. j/k. This your best one to me, no bullshit. Your daddy said u look stressed out on the cover lol. I said nigga that’s the point, we always stressing him out. Since a lil boy you been a over thinker though. But what you say, a nigga make it look sexy. Boy you can make a dog laugh,” she added, sprinkling the message with emojis.

Kendrick was more than amused by the text, responding, “You going emoji brazy. Who taught you 100?”

K. Dot’s mom should know it took a lot of hard work and dedication to put out such a bomb project. Frequent collaborating producer Sounwave recently revealed that Kung Fu Kenny required that producers on the project literately sleep in the studio instead of leaving and coming back.

“Once he got his whole brainstorming thing down and we knew the direction we were going we locked down the studio for months,” Soundwave told GQ. “Never left. Literally sleeping bags in the studio. Every producer who was on this project literally had to sleep in the studio. We were not leaving until this was a perfect sound to us.”
