Kendrick Lamar Talks About His Next Album
We’re all anxiously awaiting Kendrick Lamar’s followup to good kid, m.A.A.d city, and it looks like the only person who has a copy is his 10-year-old brother. As NME points out, Lamar did an interview with Sirius XM’s DJ Whoo Kid and when asked who had a copy, the rapper said, “You gonna have to go through my little brother.” He then followed that up with, “No, real talk. He has it. He has the album and he told me what he likes. That’s my A&R right there. He has a sophisticated ear. He’s in somebody’s elementary [school] right now knowing all the lyrics. Telling ’em, Watch.” Poor kid’s never gonna hear the end of it at school until Lamar decides to release the album, which is still expected before the end of the year. At least we know it’s definitely finished, because he’s been playing coy in interviews about it since “i” was released back in September.
