A man whose résumé includes helping introduce the world to the beauty of jazz, the genius of Michael Jackson, and the power of hip-hop, Quincy has paved the way for so many musicians, composers, producers, entrepreneurs and philanthropists alike. Born to a generation that used music to inspire those fighting in the Civil Rights Movement, Quincy now spends a significant portion of his time ensuring the youth of today are being led by a batch of musicians dedicated to raising the culture and amplifying their voice.

Watch the interview above with Kendrick only days before the release of his first single off his third studio album, To Pimp a Butterfly. At this time, the now 28-year-old “luminary” was just beginning to grasp the voids within hip-hop, his creative genius, his global impact and the responsibility that follows, to his generation, Compton, the culture, the youth, and the world.
