Compton - Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar just dropped his second studio album, "good kid, m.A.A.d city," less than a month ago, but he's already working on various collaborations.
The BET 2012 Hip Hop Award winner for Lyricist of the Year is working on a collaboration with Grand Hustle rapper T.I. for his forthcoming album, Trouble Man, HipHopDX reports.
Kendrick recently sat down with the L.A. Leakers, Justin Credible, DJ sourMILK, and Fuzz Fantab to discuss his collaborations with TI and North Carolina rapper J. Cole as well as his biggest "vibe killers" when it comes to women, and his top 3 most influential Compton songs.
He told the L.A. Leakers his worst "vibe killer" was when a chick has "bad feet."
Regarding his collaboration with T.I., Kendrick said, "We got something on his album. It's a crazy one."
When asked about his collaborative album with J. Cole, the rapper said he and Cole were "gonna drop the album out the sky." He remained mum on the issue, even refusing to give any idea of a release date. "I'm just gonna let it fall," he said.
As for Kendrick's top 3 most influential songs to come from Compton: "Straight Outta Compton" by N.W.A, "Sweet Black P*ssy" by DJ Quik, and "Straight Up Menace" by MC Eiht.
While the rapper remains focused on his upcoming collaborations, he is still very proud of his own work, and believes good kid, m.A.A.d city has all it needs to become a classic," The Versed reports.
"Classic represents five years, 10 years at a time," he explained. " It's classic worthy right now. It will be a classic. Ain't nothing missing from it to be a classic. It's just time that's missing, Lamar said.
One of the songs off good kid, m.A.A.d city, "Black Fly Boy," reflects on Kendrick Lamar's jealousy of Orlando Magic shooting guard Arron Afflalo. "Yea @kendricklamar good kid m.A.A.d city." Afflalo tweeted on October 28. According to XXL Mag, this all seemed pretty normal as NBA stars are known to be huge fans of Hip-Hop music, but Afflalo's story was a bit unique as he was actually the subject on one of the tracks off the album.
"I used to be jealous of Arron Afflalo. I used to be jealous of Aron Afflalo. He was the one to follow. He was the only leader for seeing brighter tomorrows," the 2011 XXL Freshman raps on the album's bonus track, "Black Fly Boy."
"He's pretty amazing lyrically, obviously. But the way in which he delivers it, with the wisdom that he has and his ability to rhyme the truth. It's pretty fascinating, Arron Afflalo told XXL Mag.
The NBA star was truly honored by Kendrick's dedication to him.
In the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards West Coast Cypher, Kendrick, surrounded by West Coast Legends Snoop Dogg, E-40, Kurupt, Xzibit, and DJ Quik, rapped confidently that when "Snoop passes the torch," he's going to "burn you other rappers with it."
With the success of good kid, m.A.A.d city, his "Lyricist of the year" award, and his upcoming projects, the Compton rapper has plenty reason to be confident about his future.
