Kendrick Lamar graces the August/September cover of Complex magazine, in which he discusses the follow-up to his debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d. city. The rapper reveals why he’s not worried about out-doing himself on his next studio album.
“If I keep focusing on, ‘I need to make something better than good kid,’ it’s going to be just that,” says Kendrick. “That’s not challenging yourself. I don’t want to become that person reflecting on what has been done.”
He continues, “What I’m doing now is the question. I’m only as good as my last word, my last hook, my last bridge.”
Although he didn’t go into detail, he says that he’s currently “flirting with ideas” for the project’s title. So far, he’s worked with his TDE producers and Dr Dre.
