Nick Young is Kendrick Lamar’s cousin


Seeing as Kendrick Lamar and Phil Jackson have beef right now (not really, but this whole thing is really entertaining) it’s probably a good time to let you know that Nick Young and Kendrick are cousins.

Young revealed last year in an interview with Complex Magazine that he’s related to the up-and-coming rapper:

[pullquote]Kendrick is my cousin. Actually, I just found out through my dad. I knew him when he was little, but I hadn’t seen him in a while and now it’s like ‘Damn, I didn’t know that’s my cousin and I ain’t seen him in forever.’ That’s big time.[/pullquote]

With the internet still buzzing from Lamar’s outstanding verse on Big Sean’s track “Control”, one  fan asked Young for his thoughts on his cousin’s track. It seems that Swaggy P is diggin’ it:


So, Nick is now a Laker and Kendrick is taking over the rap scene. That’s a pretty talented family, right there.
