Kendrick Lamar has been the talk of Hip-Hop as of late, and although there is a lot riding on his forthcoming Good Kid in A Mad City debut, the rapper wants to a.ssure the public that it will live up to the hype. “[It will be] the best album done in 20 years,” Lamar tells Hip-Hop Wired. “It feels good to know where I come from, and how far I'm trying to go and where I'm at now.”

As far as production, the Compton, Calif. native kept it “real in house,” praising Dr. Dre for not pressuring him to do otherwise. “Dre gave me freedom to do what I wanted to do, that's the blessing about it,” he adds, noting that working with one of the biggest names in music has reinforced much of the standards that he already lives by. “The biggest lesson I learned [from Dre] was something I already knew, just to keep the passion for it. This man got millions of dollars, but he still wants to go in there and perfect his craft, and put out the best product,” he continued.

In putting together the album, Lamar has no set creative process, instead, the kind of music he makes is dependent on how he feels in the moment. “Just waking up in the morning, feeling a certain way, hearing the beat that matches that mood I'm in and going in off that. I don't really want to force nothing. If I'm not in a feel good mood, I'm not gon' do a feel good song. I'ma do a song that makes sense right then and there.”

Lamar also marches to the beat of his own drum, in planing his schedule. While most artists try to clock as many performance as possible during the summer months, the 25-year-old has a different idea of how to soak up the good weather. “Riding through the city,” he said of his plans for the summer. “I'ma be in Compton, with my people, let ‘em know that it's real, that's the whole point.”

Good Kid in a Mad City is due out October 2

Still hasn't come out himself and gave an "official" title or date.




Kendrick Lamar ‏@kendricklamar
Let me personally announce the album date and "CORRECT" title. Then its official.

Saigon said the same thing leading up to the release of his debut. And he wasn't too far off with his statement. So hopefully Kendrick delivers. Actually, scratch that. I'm pretty much certain he WILL deliver. Let's hope the label/industry is behind it and doesn't sway the public's (sheep) opinion by not giving it proper promo and support.

My fav new artist, but he just set himself up for failure here. Now everyone's expectations are gonna be too high. He ain't capable of dropping an album of that caliber (yet).
