Kendrick Lamar has revealed that he was “abducted by aliens” when he was 6-years-old and that the aliens gave him a “special energy” he used to rise to the top of the music industry.
In an extensive interview with Howard Stern on SiriusXM, the Grammy award winning rapper said that he was visited by aliens when he was just six.

“They probably gave me the special energy.”
