Kendrick Lamar has nothing but high hopes for 2015. The rapper, who covers XXL’s winter 2014 issue, reveals that he wants this year to be all about progression.
“My New Year’s resolution is not being stagnant,” he tells the magazine. “Everything is subject to change. One thing about men and women or whoever: we hate change. It’s something tough to adapt to. Not being stagnant is something that I wouldn’t call a resolution, I would just say [it’s] a continuation of what I’m trying to do.”
Lamar, who is currently recording his sophomore album, adds, “I’m still growing at it, I’m still attempting and practicing that today, so in 2015 I’m hoping to get a little bit ahead of myself and get further with it.”
The follow-up to 2012’s Good Kid, M.A.A.D City will include his self-love anthem “i” and his new offering, “Pay for It,” featuring Jay Rock.
