The outgoing President “needs to work on his jump shot” first though, says K.Dot.

Kendrick Lamar says he’s challenged Barack Obama to a basketball match in Compton’s Gonzales Park after his term in the Oval Office finishes.

Speaking to Complex News, the TDE rapper – whose track ‘How Much A Dollar Cost’ was the President’s favorite song of last year – said of the politician’s post-White House career: “From the conversations that we’ve had, I think he’s gonna be in the communities still, heavy. He will be there and be effective inside the urban community and communities around the world.”

Kendrick goes on to joke that Barack will also be “playing a little basketball. He needs to work on his jump shot a little bit… I’ve been trying to bring him out, that’s why I’m throwing shots at him right now. I want him to come to Gonzales Park in Compton.”

Lamar also revealed that his favourite TDE project of the year came from Isaiah Rashad, who released his debut album The Sun’s Tirade on the label in September. Watch the full interview below.

Back in October, Lamar told GQ he “has ideas” for his next album and wants Rick Rubin to help bring them to life. He also revealed that is he open to making an album where he is not rapping: “If I can master the idea and make the time to approach it the right way, I think I can push it out.”
