  • Kendrick Lamar A No-Show At GQ Party in Response to Magazine’s Cover Story

    Filed under: Hip-Hop News |

    BY:  John “Hennry” Harris

    gqcoverTop Dawg Entertainment/Aftermath recording artist Kendrick Lamar is sitting on top of the rap game.  Armed with an undeniable delivery that channels a subtle mixture of Eminem and Andre 3000, Lamar has enjoyed a meteoric rise in popularity that has crossed over into mainstream America.

    Last week, K. Dot was bestowed the coveted cover of GQ magazine’s Men of the Year issue and given a feature story entitled “Kendrick Lamar:  Rapper of the Year” written by Steve Marsh.  During the process of interviewing for the article, Top Dawg Entertainiment CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith felt disrespected by some the questions and “racial overtones” that seemed to come from Marsh, and as a result, Kendrick Lamar was a no-show for the accompanying party for the mag issue.  The move left many at GQ stunned and confused as to why.

    The interview took a turn itself when Marsh told Tiffith that he was surprised by TDE’s discipline and added, “You guys seem so calm.”blackhippies

    “Well,” Tiffith told me, “we’re going to have to call it a night with you, because we about to get uncalm. You understand.”

    In the interview, Tiffith is referred to as TDE’s “Suge Knight” and the artists as “baby Death Row”.  Marsh seemed to be astonished that during his time with TDE’s artists that they weren’t smoking weed, guzzling 40’s and chasing women.  Probably the most scathing statement was Marsh’s assessment of Lamar’s family and gaining control over “his neighborhood’s warped commitment to adolescent pride.”

    GQ and other “mainstream” publications are going to have to learn that if they are going to cover hip-hop culture then they need to have someone who is truly entrenched and participates in the culture with a deeper understanding than what is rehashed in mainstream media.  Marsh was insensitive to the fact that the Suge Knight and “baby Death Row” comparisons carry a violent stigma that has resulted in the loss of two of Hip-Hop’s greatest artists and that is NOT what TDE represents.

    Marsh should have kept his “you guys seem so calm” statement to himself.  That is like when Obama was running for his first term presidency and reporters would quip “he speaks so well”.  What the f**k do you mean they “seem so calm”?  It leads one to think that Marsh already had his mind made up about who Kendrick Lamar and TDE was before he interviewed them and got caught off guard when Tiffith rightfully, in my opinion, interpreted his words as such and called him out on it.

    topdawgAnthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith gave an official statement and his sentiments boiled down to one thing:

    “While we think it’s a tremendous honor to be named as one of the Men Of The Year, these lazy comparisons and offensive suggestions are something we won’t tolerate. Our reputation, work ethic, and product is something that we guard with our lives.”

    Just like those old Verizon commercials, I ask GQ and especially Steve Marsh, “Can you hear me now?!”

    1. Media tends to be manipulators, one way or the other; whether their goal is to manipulate support for a person or contempt for them. The way Kendrick and Tiffith handled the situation was justified and necessary, given the way Marsh spoke to them.

      It appeared to me that Marsh may have hoped to cause Kendrick to have an angry outburst, like Kanye had with reporters who disrespected his space a few years ago. Consider how much attention Marsh would have received if Kendrick or Tiffith had lashed out at him.

      Much respect, once again, to Kendrick and Tiffith.

    2. Finally, an artist with the balls to stand up to these antiquated, dinosaur journalist who have racism hardwired into their lexicon. Lets keep stepping to these fools so that we can help them break free of the narrow mindset they have been hardwired to live by. Let’s keep encouraging rappers who keep guns, sex and violence out of their music and think positively towards a brighter future of hip hop and mainstream rap.

      ‘I heard a few heads say that hip hop is dead. No its not, its just malnourished and underfed.’
