Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d. city received high praise by fans and was quickly referred to as a classic. Lamar recently expressed how he felt about the remarks he’s received.
“That felt crazy,” Kendrick Lamar said in an interview with Houston, Texas radio station 93.7 The Beat’s Devi Dev. “I don’t take that word [‘classic’] lightly. I know the excitement. They really appreciated. I respect it 100 percent because I put a lot of work into it.
“I really can’t focus on the past and what was said then,” he added. “You’re only as good as your last piece of work, so now it’s about what’s right now and me putting that same 110 percent that I did with the last one.”
Lamar was also asked what the concept around his sophomore album is set to be.
“I don’t know,” he says. “I couldn’t tell you that. I’ll know exactly what it is once I’m done with the music.”
