Kendrick Lamar's debut album is still moving units off shelves, and while many were quick to label it a classic, Kendrick Lamar thinks the album needs 10 years, and then it'll be labeled as such. 

In an interview with Bootleg Kev, the Compton representer said he went in the studio with the mindset of making a classic, and it's sure to be one, just give it a few more years, "Once it get them years about it, they'll know for sure [that it's a classic.]"

While many have been rooting for the good kid to do well, and having nothing but applause for the rapper, veteran emcee Shyne commented on good kid, m.A.A.d city after it dropped, labeling it "trash." While K. Dot hasn't really addressed Shyne or the beef which GKMC incurred between Game and Shyne, he did give him a shoutout in the interview, calling him a "good dude." When asked if he had spoken with Shyne following his statements, Kendrick said, "Nah, I haven't." He continued, "Shoutout to Shyne, man. He's a good dude, real good dude."

Finally, he lets fans know that they shouldn't expect a follow-up to GKMC any time soon, "I have a lot of material recorded, you know I don't stop recording, but they probably won't get a second album for awhile."
