Kanye Dishes Out the Rarest Compliment of All Time

Kanye Dishes Out the Rarest Compliment of All Time

Kendrick Lamar receives major props from 'Ye himself.

Published February 4th

While the name may up in the air for the album formerly known as SWISH, and quite possibly the album formerly known as Waves, Kanye West has certainly made up his mind about one thing.

Kendrick Lamar is the “God MC.”

Hopping on the phone for an exclusive interview with LA radio DJ Big Boy, West made one thing clear: Lamar could be his closest friendly competitor for G.O.A.T.

“With Kendrick, that’s God MC,” West said during the radio appearance. “Can’t no record go out without him approaching the mix, the sound of his voice, everything like that.”

While the “God MC” title has long gone to Rakim, the phrase semantically is the highest praise one rapper can give to another. Interesting, considering ‘Ye has often put himself on such a pedestal, routinely tweeting lines like, “I need a room full of mirrors so I can be surrounded by winners.”

While Kendrick hasn’t made a comment reacting, we’re confident he’s not mad about it.
