    Kendrick speaks to XXL, “The past few years or so has been very politically charged and controversial. From Trayvon Martin, to Eric Garner to Michael Brown and issues of police brutality and racism and for so many other reasons. All of it has really struck a nerve with me because when you experience things like that personally and you know the type of hardships and pain that it brings first-hand, it builds a certain rage in you."

    "It brings back memories of when I’m 16 and the police come kicking the door in. They don’t care that I’m a little boy and they stumped me in my back two times and they dragged me out the house and have us all handcuffed. It brings back those memories. Memories of losing loved ones. It brings back some of the most painful memories and deepest thoughts of real life situations that I didn’t even want to address on good kid. Or wasn’t ready to. Rage is the perfect word for it.”


    Please take your time reading the next four paragraphs, consider the criminal, anti-social, people and community harming lifestyle Kendrick describes he and his three siblings were introduced to by their "living wild" parents.

    1) In his 2015 Grammy award winning Rap Performance titled "I", Kendrick Lamar writes, *"I've been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent."*

    2) During a January 20, 2011 LAWeekly interview Kendrick, born in 1987, the same year songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and *VICTIM DENIAL* that was nominated for a Grammy award, told the interviewer:

    3) *"Lamar's parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. "My mom's one of 13 [THIRTEEN] siblings, and they all got SIX kids, and till I was 13 everybody was in Compton," he says."*

    4) *"I'm 6 years old, seein' my uncles playing with shotguns, sellin' dope in front of the apartment. My moms and pops never said nothing, 'cause they were young and living wild, too. I got about 15 stories like 'Average Joe.'"*

    Now go back and read how the police treated Kendrick when they raided his home TEN YEARS after he first witnessed his family members "living wild," selling drugs, using firearms to protect and enforce their community and people harming drug operation.

    Again I ask, has Kendrick Lamar lost touch with reality?

    Is Kendrick actually blaming the police for him be treated like a dangerous criminal felon with the potential to cause harm to police while they are attempting to protect The Duckworth's peaceful neighbors from armed drug dealers who do their best to profit from destroying people's lives and derive pleasure from actively causing chaos in their community?

    I read that Kendrick believes he is 'The Chosen One'.

    Frankly, if Kendrick continues denying his parents are responsible for his depression by depriving him and his siblings of a safe, fairly happy Average Joe and Josie American kid childhood, I will view him as a man who had the opportunity to make a significant change and blew it because he is not strong enough to be honest with himself and others about his abusive childhood.

    "The Chosen One" is a title of high regard, exclusively reserved for an exceptionally truthful, honest common man or woman who genuinely seeks to improve the lives of others.

    If Kendrick continues to deny the source of his near lifelong depression, he will not be selflessly helping others who share his abusive up-bringing, in my opinion excluding him earning the status as The Chosen One.

    I wonder how little Kendrick and his classmates reacted when their elementary school teacher introduced the DARE presenter and they learned about the real dangers of drugs and how they harm people, including their parents? *Cognitive Dissonance*
