Kendrick Lamar believes ''God put something in'' him to stop gang culture in Los Angeles.
The 'King Kunta' rapper has agreed with fellow musician J Cole who said Kendrick is the musician with the ability to ''put an end to this s**t, the gang rivals and stuff in LA'', insisting special powers bestowed on him will help him save his home city.
Asked about J Cole's comments, he said: ''That's a lot of responsibility. I definitely think that God put something in me that I'm not even aware of, I know it's there and I know it has the power to not only conquer what's going on in LA, but also a little deeper and further than that. I just don't know when.''
The 28-year-old star released his third studio album 'To Pimp a Butterfly' to critical acclaim earlier this year and has now revealed he was inspired to make an album void of ''catchiness'' with the LP following the success of his second record.
He explained: ''I wasn't in the space creatively to make any other type of record. I didn't have the urge to. You've got three singles on 'good kid, m.A.A.d City': 'Swimming Pools (Drank)', 'Poetic Justice', and 'Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe'. This time, I said to myself: 'I don't want the catchiness.' I want people to live with [the album] and dissect it for a long time.''
And although he features on the single release of Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood', he has no plans to make a full-time foray into pop music.
He told Shortlist magazine: ''Me, a pop album? I don't know what the future may bring, maybe when I'm 50 years old.''
