The Daily Grind Video

All it took was a verse, and the late night shows start calling.

Last night, Kendrick Lamar appeared on Chelsea Lately. Obviously, Kendrick doesn’t have a project to promote, so the topic of discussion was current events.

And when we say current events, we mean Miley Cyrus at the VMAs and his “Control” verse.

When it comes to Miley’s performance, Kendrick said:

“It was shocking, very shocking…It didn’t get in the way of what I was doing, but I definitely was interested.”

As for the “Control” verse, Kendrick kept it pretty short, saying:

“I basically wanted to show that I’m competitive. That keeps the level of hip-hop alive as far as the culture.”

The interview is brief, but they touch on a good amount of topics, including K.Dot’s upbringing and his dreams, when he was a kid, of wanting to be Michael Jordan.

Watch the entire interview above.
