Kendrick Lamar continues to reveal tidbits of information regarding his debut album. In a recent interview, Kendrick says this album "won't sound like 'Section.80'."
Many are wondering what it will sound like, and what direction K.Dot is going with it. He revealed to XXL, that it will sound nothing like his last project, Section. 80.
"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 his album 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 says this first project working with Dr. Dre will deal more-so with Compton and his upbringing in the city. "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," Kendrick says.
The album drops October 2nd.
