Kendrick Lamar is one of the hottest up and coming rappers in the game. With his recent signing to Interscope and also being mentored by Dr. Dre himself this former XXL Freshman of The Year is looking to take over the game in 2012. In an recent interview with The Boombox he discusses his new single and the album.
“I’ve got a song called ‘Dying of Thirst,'” K.Dot revealed. “I want you to listen to it and then you’ll understand what I’m talking about. Just life, in general, is the meaning behind it. It’s a certain situation that I had to go through; I had to bump my head a few times to know what I had to do to get back right.”
“It’s probably one of the deepest songs on [the album] that I’ve written,” he admits. “It’s real short though, probably only a minute or two. When people listen to the album a few more times, and go back and forth, they really understand the setting and the actual position that it has in the album and why it’s in that tracklisting.”
On his album, he says, “That’s my whole thing — I like doing whole bodies of work. I don’t want people to listen one time and then pop in the next dude. I want them to actually live with [my album] for years and be able to understand it and digest it.” His album is untitled as of now but expect it to be out later this year.
