Never cover Kendrick Lamar. That’s the 11th Commandment. He is just so, so unassailable and so, so specific. You can’t do it. You’re doomed.

Time to rethink everything we thought about covering other artists. This is amazing. It’s genre-bending in the coolest way. Has Kendrick seen this? Can he do a reverse cover in return? We have no idea if that’s going to be good, but I mean, with this being what it is, we’re ready for greatness.
