“good kid, m.A.A.d city,” Kendrick Lamar’s breakthrough album, has done more than ruffle the feathers of those mentioned (or not mentioned) in the Compton rapper’s verse on Big Sean’s “Control.” In fact, it seems that the album will be further established as a classic thanks to professor Adam Diehl from Georgia Regents University. Professor Diehl will be dissecting the 2012 album to shed light and emphasize the core narrative and societal influences it possesses according to REVOLT. More info after the jump.

K.Dot Talks The Pressure Of Creating An Album Better Than “Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City”

IFWT_Kendrick_Complex_Cover

If you are any where near a Kendrick Lamar fan – such as myself – than you’re still listening to Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City and waiting for K.Dot’s sophomore album with toes tapping. Although, genius does take time.

Kendrick talks to Complex for their August/September 2014 issue about taking his time on the next release, so that measuring up to the skill that he showed during Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City will be easy like Sunday morning. While we hope that an end to Kendrick’s creating an album process is near, there is still no cover art, he admits to have recorded about 30-40 possible tracks and he’s still, “flirting with ideas.” Tae Beats, Sounwave of Digi+Phonics as well as Dr. Dre are a few of the producers to be working on the album – sure to be great.

“Kendrick shook up the rap game, so anticipation for his second offering is through the roof,” says Nas. TRUTH! “Whatever he does will be appreciated, but at the same time he knows he has to bring it,” he adds. Also, TRUTH! I’ll just be over here biting my nails as I wait.

For now, hit the jump to check out what K.Dot mentions about the pressure, or lack there of in creating the follow-up to his debut album.
