Recently, one of the greatest rappers of our time sat down with Billboard Magazine to talk about the Grammys and much more.
Many remember how the Good Kid, M.A.A.D City emcee did not take home the grammy last time, but this time with a masterpiece like To Pimp a Butterfly, it’s hard too see him lose again.
The powerful single “Alright” is up for four Grammys this year. Here’s what K.Dot had to say about Butterfly:
Says Lamar: “The album just had a deeper impact than I expected, because it touched so many homes, and not just in my own community. I guess I’m just speaking words that need to be heard in these times.”
And here’s what he said about the Grammy loss:
“[The Grammy defeats] would have been upsetting to me if I’d known that was my best work, if I had nothing new to offer,” he says. “Good Kid, M.A.A.D City is great work, but it’s not my best work. To Pimp a Butterfly is great. I’m talking about the connection the record made. Good Kid, M.A.A.D City made a connection. But To Pimp a Butterfly made a bigger connection.”
A lot of people are wondering how Lamar will top all the amazing work he’s already brought to the table. It’s a big feat, no doubt. He says he has some ideas:
“As far as content, what I want to get across, I have an idea,” he says. “But even that’s still premature. Once I get back in that studio, things evolve into other things.”
