“Inspiration Is Everywhere”- Kendrick Lamar
“I’m meeting different people, different cultures so I’m constantly writing. The process now is so spontaneous. It’s whatever I get my hands on. Whenever an idea approaches, I gotta write it down. I gotta keep a mental note. Whether it’s a napkin, my phone, abook or anything. Inspiration is everything. That’s my main focus, my art, knowing it wasn’t the hype, it wasn’t press, it wasn’t piblicity stunts. It was the music from Day 1. I have to remember that.”
