Kendrick Lamar and Chelsea Handler

Kendrick Lamar was met with roaring applause when he stopped by “Chelsea Lately” on Thursday. The “Swimming Pools” MC, who the comedienne called a “cute little nugget,” turned on the charm as he chatted about Miley Cyrus’ racy VMA performance, his basketball dreams, and upbringing in Compton.

He was included in Miley’s set with Robin Thicke at the VMAs. “It was shocking, very shocking,” said Kendrick of the pop star’s performance. “It didn’t get in the way of what I was doing, but I definitely was interested.”

Chelsea also brought up his controversial “Control” verse. “A lot of cats I named, they’re actually good friends of mine. I basically wanted to show that I’m competitive,” he explained. “That keeps the level of hip-hop alive as far as the culture.”

Before hip-hop, K-Dot had dreams of playing in the NBA. “Before music, I wanted to be Michael Jordan. But like you said, I’m a small guy, I only grew to 5’6″ and it deferred my dreams to actually writing rhymes.”
