Every Kendrick Lamar fan has their favorite song, but what does the Compton rapper think of his own work? In a new interview with i-D, when asked if he’s written the perfect rhyme yet, Lamar says that “FEAR.” from his latest full-length DAMN. contains the best verses he’s ever penned.

“It’s completely honest,” he told i-D. “The first verse is everything that I feared from the time that I was seven years old. The second verse I was 17, in the third it’s everything I feared when I was 27. These verses are completely honest.” Revisit “FEAR.” produced by The Alchemist below.

Kung Fu Kenny also explained how his friends and family keep him humble and help him grow as an artist. "Everything you write is not dope," he says. "Even if you're a great writer, a bunch of the stuff you write is wack. But most people don't have somebody around to be like, 'That's wack.'"

Kung Fu Kenny also discusses Trump, Obama, and how we can all make a difference in the new interview. Read the full cover story here.
