Kendrick Says Ferguson ‘Should Never Have Happened’

Kendrick Lamar Talks Ferguson: 'What Happened Should've Never Happened'

As someone who grew up in Compton, Kendrick Lamar knows about tense exchanges with police officers. By his own reckoning, he was treated unjustly by the LAPD “plenty of times. All the time.”

But in Billboard’s latest cover story, Kendrick isn’t going into details of any past trouble he may or may not have gotten into. “Oh, man, I won’t be able to say that on record,” Lamar tells Gavin Edwards. “I got into some things, but God willing, he had favoritism over me and my spirit.”
