After getting a No. 1 hit on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with Lil Durk on “Broadway Girls,” Morgan Wallen, the controversial country singer who was under fire last year for using the N-word, is looking to jump on another hip-hop collab and has his eyes set on Kendrick Lamar.
“I do love Moneybagg [Yo]. He’s definitely at the top of the list,” Wallen said on Druski’s Clubhouse chat per XXL. “But like overall, ever…I’m trying to think of not just in the past little bit. Kendrick Lamar would be pretty cool.”
Wallen revealed that he is a hip-hop fan and his playlists consist of several rappers who’ve made big hits this year, “Moneybagg is probably my favorite. And I listened to a lot of Young Dolph—R.I.P. I listened to Drake’s new album. I listen to Kanye. I’ve been listening to a little bit of Gunna. I like him pretty good.”
During the interview, Wallen revealed how the Lil Durk collab came about. “So I hit him up,” Wallen recalled. “Me and him had been talking a little bit throughout the year and kind of developed a friendship. I was like, ‘I don’t know if you’re serious or not, but here’s a couple of versions.’ And he took the song. I said, ‘I’m not gonna put out an album for a while. If you just want to throw this on yours, go ahead.’ So he did and I’m super pumped about it.” Strangely, Druski didn’t ask Wallen about his controversy from last year.
