Kendrick Lamar Vibes in the Studio with Dr. Dre and André 3000

As the release date for his debut quickly approaches, Kendrick Lamar continues to garner love from hip-hop heavyweights.

A video of K. Dot zoning out in the studio with his mentor Dr. Dre and André 3000 has surfaced via Rolling Stone. As the trio listens to Kendrick’s “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe,” it’s clear that Dre and Three Stacks are feeling the music. At the end, 3000 says, “Excellent.”

Earlier today, Kendrick snagged kudos from another music icon, Pharrell. The Neptunes hitmaker tweeted that the young rapper was akin to Bob Dylan. “@kendricklamar is this era’s Bob Dylan. Masterful story telling. Listen to it, it will elevate you. And just like that music has changed.”
