Kendrick Lamar speaks on what to expect from the follow-up to "good kid, m.A.A.d city".
Expectations are high for Kendrick Lamar's follow-up to good kid, m.A.A.d city. The rapper's 2012 effort (which you can't call his debut album or his sophomore album without pissing someone off) was greeted with almost unanimous praise within days of its release, which makes the pressure pretty high for the next album, but according K.Dot, he's not feeling all that much.
"That felt crazy," said Kendrick, of his album being called a 'classic' out the gate. "I don't take that word lightly. I know the excitement. They really appreciated. I respect it 100 percent because I put a lot of work into it.
The rapper later commented that he's not looking back at his past successes when recording the new album. "I really can't focus on the past and what was said then.," he said. "You're only as good as your last piece of work, so now it's about what's right now and me putting that same 110 percent that I did with the last one."
GKMC had a very tight structure, but according to Lamar, he won't know what the theme of his next album will be until he's finished recording. "I couldn't tell you that" he shared. "I'll know exactly what it is once I'm done with the music."
Kendrick Lamar speaks on his upcoming album, Dr. Dre's contributions, and Troy Ave's designation of K.Dot as a "weirdo rapper".
While he didn't actually release an album last year, Kendrick Lamarmanaged to put the rap game in a stir. "Control" kept the rapper in the conversation throughout 2013, but in the new year, the rapper has been a little more low-key. One would assume that this is because K.Dot is getting ready to drop his highly anticipated follow-up to good kid, m.A.A.d city.
