In the run-up to his new album good kid, m.A.A.d. city, Kendrick Lamar has been taking time to do the obligatory promotion that comes along with releasing an album. And in a new interview with Philadelphia radio personality Mina SayWhat, the Compton-bred prodigy talks about the development of good kid, the influence DMX has had on him, advice he’s received from mentor Dr. Dre, why you “can’t really categorize” his music,” and more. Check out the interview below, where you can also find Lamar’s still-great Dre-featuring single “The Recipe.”
good kid, m.A.A.d. city comes out October 22 via TDE/Aftermath/Interscope.
