Kendrick Lamar says that Kanye West has had quite the influence on his career. Lamar spoke with THR and told the site that West has giving him a lot of advice that he has taken to heart.
Lamar said, "Kanye taught me to never to downplay your ideas. I learned to always stay as creative as possible and never have any boundaries. Those things that people called 'rants' onstage are real conversations that we had behind closed doors -- about business and how when you get to a certain level people won't want to see you break through because they only see you as a rapper."
