Kendrick Lamar Brings 'Aggression and Emotion' to New Album

The pressure is on. This fall Kendrick Lamar will deliver the highly-anticipated follow-up to his 2012 debut good kid, m.A.A.d city, and it promises to be worth the wait.

The Compton MC has been keeping a tight lid on the project, but opened up to Rolling Stone about his latest creation, which picks up where he left off.

“There was a lot left out of good kid—it could have been a 30-track album,” said Kendrick. “There are a few new [songs] that can tie in with what I was talking about.”

He has cut “a bunch of tracks” with Dr. Dre (“He’s gone in the lab and tried to really elevate himself”) and TDE’s in-house producers Digi+Phonics.

Fans can expect “aggression and emotion,” but not many cameos. “I have so much to say,” he said. “It’s almost selfish of me.”

So does he feel the pressure to top good kid? “I think it’s like fun, if anything, because it’s a challenge not only for myself, [for] my fans. And just me creatively,” he told 106 KMEL earlier this year. “I think it’s more of an anxious-type feeling. I was like, ‘I’ma go out here and give it my best shot for what I know.’ And I’ma do that the second time around.”

In the meantime, Kendrick can be heard on Jeezy’s “Holy Ghost,” Flying Lotus’ “Never Catch Me,” and Jasmine V’s “That’s Me Right There.”
