At this point, we don't know much about Kendrick Lamar's upcoming sophomore album -- besides the fact that he's hard at work and we're eagerly anticipating its release.
One thing that we now know for sure: The project will have an abundance of "aggression and emotion," according to an interview K. Dot gave Rolling Stone for their most recent issue, with Taylor Swift on the cover, on newsstands now.
In many ways, that sounds like it'll be a thematic cousin to Kendrick's major label debut, 2012's good kid, m.A.A.d city, which was brimming with emotion in its own right. But it also had moments of sadness, as he told tales of abundant violence and slain friends. The follow up, it sounds like -- though, of course, we won't know for sure until it drops -- may channel that tragedy into anger.
"There was a lot I left out of good kid -- it could have been a 30-track album," the Compton native said, adding that there may be some carry over content-wise. "There are a few [new] songs that can tie in with what I was talking about."
What he does have, though, is "a bunch of tracks" with Dre on the boards.
That's a lot to look forward to.
