Most folks would consider Kendrick Lamar a conscious rapper.

50 Cent, not so much.

But Kendrick doesn't think of it that way.

During a discussion with Nigerian singer Tems for Interview magazine, K. Dot explained how Fif changed his perspective on consciousness.

“Now, I’ve always studied 50 Cent’s music and watched his interviews, and someone asked if he was a conscious artist,” K. Dot recalled. “He said, ‘Yeah, I’m a conscious artist because I have a conscience.

“That shit blew me away. It gave me a different perspective — 50 drops a lot of jewels that give me perspective, but that one right there gave me a sense of, okay, a lot of artists live and know how to project duality.”

Does that change your perspective?
