Kendrick Lamar Reveals Why He’ll Never Make ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city 2’

K. Dot and his cousin grace the cover of i-D Magazine's new issue.

Kendrick Lamar lays relatively low considering his celebrity status. In fact, it’s a rare day when he speaks on social media or even in interviews. But in a new cover story for i-D Magazine, K. Dot pops up to interview his 20-year-old cousin and protégé Baby Keem and makes some interesting revelations along the way.

In particular, he alludes to carving out a new sound for his highly anticipated follow-up to 2017’s Pulitzer Prize-winning album DAMN. .centered-ad {

“I spend the whole year just thinking about how I’m gonna execute a new sound, I can’t do the same thing over and over,” he explains to Keem. “I need something to get me excited.” He also admitted the pressure he felt to execute his 2012 sophomore album, good kid, m.A.A.d City, while explaining why he’ll never make a sequel (HipHopDX rated it a perfect 5.0 at the time).

“I remember the sophomore jinx of good kid, m.A.A.d City; it was for that year and for that time,”he says. “I was in a different space in my life. I already knew off the top I can’t make good kid, m.A.A.d City Part Two. The second I’m making that, it’s corny bro. That takes the feeling away from the first. I need that muthafucka to live in its own world. Then boom, To Pimp A Butterfly. Some people love it to death, some people hate it.”
