I used to be jealous of Arron Afflalo
He was jealous of him because his career was set in stone unlike Kendrick and his friends who didn’t know what they would do in their lives. Afflalo later said:
He’s pretty amazing lyrically, obviously. But the way in which he delivers it, with the wisdom that he has and his ability to rhyme the truth. It’s pretty fascinating.
I wouldn’t say we hung out everyday or nothin’ like that, but just in terms of school and seeing him go through the process of trying to get to where he’s going—not even where he’s at today, but where he’s continuing to rise to. I’ve spoken to him on a few occasions, like when I would run into him throughout the summer. I’m sure I’ma run into him. I’ll reach out for sure when I’m in L.A., get him to come to a game.
