By Staff  |  01/15/2013

Ever since Kendrick Lamar dropped the visual to his good kid, m.A.A.d city cut, "Backseat Freestyle", fans have been wondering about the mystery woman Sherane, which he speaks about in the LP's intro track that's named after her.

It's his childhood crush... but is it really her?

In a recent interview with MTV, the Compton rapper reveals that it isn't the real Sherane (not her real name)... but is a great clone of her.

"Nah, that wasn't the real Sherane," Kendrick confirms. "But it was a great, great imaginary -- clone of Sherane for sure.

"It's funny because it's a weird thing when I go back to the neighborhood and the homeys know who I'm talking about. It be a big joke, and I've been hearing things that she's more excited and surprised that I put her in the song more than anything," he continued. "That's the funny part about it. It's all love though. I ain't got no ill will."
