Kendrick Lamar Working On New Album

Posted by - 12:46 PM on 07/22/14
According to a new interview with Complex, Kendrick Lamar has been hard at work on his forthcoming album, stating that he has around 30-40 songs done. The rapper expects to drop the project before the end of the year, and says he has been working with Dr. Dre, among others.
But now that Kendrick, 27, is a hysteria-inducing star, the world is waiting to see if he can deliver twice. Expectations are high. After good kid, good simply won’t be good enough. Unlike GKMC, which Kendrick planned years in advance, there’s no cover art in mind for the follow-up. As for a title, Kendrick says he’s “flirting with ideas.” He’s been working primarily with TDE’s in-house producers, Tae Beast and Sounwave of Digi+Phonics, but has also gotten in the studio with Dr. Dre. He’s still just “getting his ideas down,” but so far Kendrick’s recorded 30 to 40 new songs for the album (he recorded 60 to 70 songs for GKMC). He says he’ll be ready for a fourth quarter release.

It's not an inaccurate description based on the effect he has on certain circles of rap fans and his mainstream popularity.

Last year at ACL he had people going absolutely bonkers, I don't think it's a hyperbole at all.

He has such a great attitude towards making music and life in general. I have a feeling this album will be fantastic just as long as he doesn't rap like he did on control the entire time. While the high intensity angry Kendrick is good at times, I much rather prefer him when he isn't all pissed off.

I'm in love with Complex's site. The incorporation of short videos instead of static images is beautiful.
