Kendrick Lamar is pro-aliens. Yesterday, the Compton-raised rapper sat down with Howard Stern, as Pigeons and Planes reported, for a lengthy discussion on Black Live Matter, working with Taylor Swift, and his affinity for extraterrestrial encounters.
Lamar recounted to Stern that when he was only six-years-old he felt he crossed paths with a being not of this Earth: “Nobody believed me then and they don’t believe me now. It’s just something I can’t really describe, because it just sounds like, ‘Okay, you just saw a dart go past.’ That shit don’t make sense. I remember this and words can’t describe it. It’s just a surreal moment.”
He then joked that perhaps he was abducted by aliens, which gave him his supreme rapping ability, “That’s probably why I’m doing music right now. Who knows. They probably gave me the energy.”
Now this isn’t the first time Lamar has spoken about aliens: He mentioned a similar childhood UFO account to Jojo Wright in a 2014 interview. And who could forget the song “Alien Girl” from his 2010 Overly Dedicated mixtape? Aliens exist, man.
