Kendrick Lamar reveals that good kid, m.A.A.d city won’t sound anything like Section.80 in his XXL cover story. K.Dot’s Aftermath debut is one of the most anticipated albums of 2012 and you can expect a change in subject matter according to his recent interview with XXL.
“I couldn’t tell you what type of sound or where I’ma be in the next five years as far as music,” he says of good kid, m.A.A.d city. “It’s a big difference from the next project compared to the last. And that’s what happened with this album. Going back to the neighborhood and going to different spots, chilling with my homeboys, put me back in that same space where we used to be, bringing back them thoughts, reminiscing how I was feeling. I got myself right back in that mode and I got inspired by that. So this album won’t sound like Section.80. Completely nothing like it.”
Kendrick explains that good kid, m.A.A.d city will focus on growing up in Compton and the struggle to escape temptations of the street life.
“The kid that’s trying to escape that influence, trying his best to escape that influence, has always been pulled back in because of circumstances that be,” says Kendrick.
