Most people would agree that Stevie Wonder is an icon—except, that is, Stevie Wonder.
In GQ’s new Legacy Project, the magazine interviews Wonder, whose response to the very concept is to say, “Honestly, I don’t even know what that means. God is the icon.”
Wonder goes on to show a savvy appreciation for current music. One of his favorites, it turns out, is a young Compton rapper.
“Kendrick Lamar is extremely talented. But not only is he just talented; he has a real concern for the people,” said Wonder. “The good thing about the young is that they want to fix things.”
