Listen to Kendrick Lamar on iHeartRadio

Kendrick Lamar is "GQ's" Rapper of the Year. 

The up-and-coming emcee also earned the honor of being featured on the cover for the magazine's "Men of the Year" issue. 

In an accompanying interview, K-Dot dishes on his relationship with Drake.  Even though Kendrick seemingly dissed Drizzy on his BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher freestyle, he says they are still "pretty cool." 

However, he admits that if the pair didn't have a decent relationship, he "would be okay" with that.  Kendrick also reveals that he doesn't look to Drake as a role model and that they are musical peers.
