There is nothing more amazing then witnessing your favourite rapper, interview his. Kendrick Lamar proper geeked out interviewing N.W.A members Ice Cube, DJ Yella, MC Ren and Dr Dre. 

The interview keeps you on your toes and makes you really feel like hip hop truly is alive. With the group even saying that they thought they were big then that now, they will even be bigger. 

We could go on and quote you what each member has said that struck a chord for us, but one did hit us pretty hard as creatives that love hip hop and do it all for the love of music. 

"You're never poor, when you're doing something creating" Ice Cube.
