Lamar said the art of putting together a quality project encouraged him to not force out his m.A.A.d city follow-up album a few months ago.
“The hold up is inspiration really, I don’t get in the studio just to rap. I’m in a space now where I got to actually have something that moves me. Going around experiencing different people and meeting different people and having my own issues in life in general, that inspires me to get in the studio and do what I got to do and say something where the people can connect again just as they did with good kid.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
