Kendrick Lamar Wanted To Be Michael Jordan (VIDEO)
Compares competition among rappers to competition on the court.
Before rapper Kendrick Lamar used to be jealous of Magic guard Arron Afflalo, K.Dot wanted to be Michael Jordan. While on a recent episode of E!’s Chelsea Lately, Lamar explained that his goals are still to be the greatest, but in a different game.
“Before music, I wanted to be Michael Jordan,” he said. “But I’m a small guy—I only grew to 5-6. I deferred my dreams to write in rhymes, and I pinned [that dream] somewhere else.”
