Published Dec 12, 2017Having written about aliens earlier in his career, one would wonder if Kendrick Lamar has any extraterrestrial connections to the cosmos. According to the man himself, he may actually have been abducted by aliens before becoming a hip-hop icon.
Speaking on The Howard Stern Show today (December 12), Lamar revealed astrology as a recent interest outside of music, claiming that he saw a UFO at six years old and that the extraterrestrial pilots "probably did" abduct him.
"I probably shouldn't even be talking about it," he told Stern. "I'm going to stand my ground to this … Nobody believed me then and don't [nobody] believe me now."
The story makes sense depending on your own beliefs about what's out there — where else could he have gotten those out-of-this-world rap skills?
Elsewhere in the interview, Lamar spoke about collaborating with Taylor Swift, growing up in Compton and how he nearly collaborated with Prince on 2015's To Pimp a Butterfly. You can listen to the entire conversation here.
Stern's show is becoming a popular place for musicians to air out their grievances with aliens, with Billy Corgan recently detailing an experience of his own only a few months ago.
