Kendrick Lamar opened up to MTV about his recent meeting with Eminem. Kendrick revealed that Eminem listened to Good Kid Maad City and gave him pointers, spoke on his penmanship and more. Kendrick says that he did not hear any of Eminem‘s new material, and met Marshall as a fan, but hopes to soon record material with him.

“Everybody knows Eminem’s penmanship, it’s insane. For the most part, he focused on that as much as possible,” Kendrick said. “That was the game that he was giving me and my crew: always stay focused on the craft and not indulge in all the other crazy stuff that comes around.”
