Kendrick Lamar is still basking in his high-profile meeting with President Barack Obama, and rightfully so. In Billboard’s cover story on the Grammy-nominated Comptonite, K. Dot spoke further on his meeting of the minds with the POTUS.

“The way people look at me these days — that’s the same way I looked at President Obama before I met him,” he gushed. “We tend to forget that people who’ve attained a certain position are human. When [the president] said to my face what his favorite record was — I understood that, no matter how high-ranking you get in this world, you’re human.”

The two met earlier this year to discuss issues concerning the disadvantaged inner cities of the United States and some solutions of how to rectify the issues through the power of mentorship through his “Pay It Forward” campaign.
