Kendrick Lamar Interviewed the Surviving Members of N.W.A

N.W.A’s Straight Outta Compton biopic is set for release on Friday August 14 and Dr. Dre just released the spiritual soundtrack Compton, so Billboard corralled the surviving members of the group for a video interview. As an added wrinkle, however, they enlisted Compton’s biggest rapper of the moment Kendrick Lamar to ask the questions of his forerunners. Preciously, at the beginning, he apologizes because he’s “got too many questions.” Watch the full interview here,

including meditations on their whole career and influence.
