Kendrick Lamar can feel the pulse of people in general and thinks his new album is just what they need right now.
“I think now, how wayward things have gone within the past few months, my focus is ultimately going back to my community and the other communities around the world where they’re doing the groundwork. To Pimp a Butterfly was addressing the problem. I’m in a space now where I’m not addressing the problem anymore…We’re in a time where we exclude one major component out of this whole thing called life: God. Nobody speaks on it because it’s almost in conflict with what’s going on in the world when you talk about politics and government and the system.”
Kendrick’s album is still in the concept phase but there have been numerous leaks. Since "To Pimp a Butterfly" he has been doing features a lot! His latest being on Thundercat‘s “Walk On By.”
