Morgan Wallen Eyes Kendrick Lamar Collaboration


Fresh off his collaboration with Lil Durk, Morgan Wallen is looking at a collaboration with Kendrick Lamar.

During a Clubhouse chat with Druski, the controversial country crooner revealed that he mainly listens to hip-hop and that Moneybagg Yo is one of his favorite artists.

“I love Moneybagg… He is definitely at the top of the list,” said Wallen according to… Variety. “Honestly, my top stuff on Spotify was all hip-hop. … Moneybagg is probably my favorite. And I listened a lot to Young Dolph – RIP. I listened to Drake’s new album. I’m listening to Kanye. … I listened to Gunna a little bit. I quite like him.”

But when asked who he would most like to collaborate with, he set his sights on King Kendrick. “But as in general, ever…I try to think about not just in the past…Kendrick Lamar would be pretty cool,” he added.

A Kendrick collaboration could be a longshot, as the Compton rapper once became famous for shutting down a white fan for singing the N-word onstage at an Alabama music festival.

Although his N-word controversy was not discussed at Clubhouse, Wallen was asked how his country/hip-hop crossover record with Durk, “Broadway Girls,” came about.

“Durk responded on my Instagram…. So I beat him up,” he said. “He and I had talked a little bit all year and developed a kind of friendship.”

Wallen posted a snippet of the song on Instagram and it caught Durk’s attention. “I was like, ‘I don’t know if you’re serious’ [about collaborating] or not, but here are a few versions.’ And he took the song… I said, ‘I’m not going to release an album for a while. If you just want to throw this on yours, go ahead.” So he did it and I’m super excited about it.”

“Broadway Girls” is off to a strong start, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. It comes less than a year after a video surfaced of Wallen using the N-word after a drunken night out with friends. Amid the controversy, he was suspended by his record label and radio stations stopped playing his music, but his album Dangerous: The Double Album still remained the best selling album from 2021.
