Kendrick Lamar Addresses Pressure Of Recording Debut Album "Good Kid In A Mad City"

Kendrick Lamar says that he's been preparing for this album for his entire life.

Kendrick Lamar is currently prepping the release of his debut Good Kid in a Mad City, set for release on TDE/Aftermath/Interscope. During an interview on “Last Call with Carson Daly,” K. Dot spoke on the record, stating that he’s always known how important his debut would be from the beginning of his career.

“This is something that I always prep for. When you have a vision to come out and have the world know your music, you have to see that first before you get in the studio and do anything,” he said. “Since the day I stepped in the studio, I always envisioned this first album and what it would be like and what I wanted to feel subconsciously. There’s really no pressure for me, it’s just me going in and doing what I love. Executing. All those years of preparation and dedicated to my craft, I feel like it’s time now where I know I’m going to execute, I know I’ll give the people what they need and what they expect from me. And what I expect from myself, at the end of the day.”
