Writer’s block? Not quite. While we wait for Kendrick’s sophomore LP, he’s in deep thought on the cover of Complex. Excerpt below. Full article here.
The child of Compton is gearing up to release the follow-up to his highly acclaimed major label debut. How do you follow a classic? How do you make sure your album checks off all the boxes after you told everyone with a microphone to do better? Who knows. We just hope Kendrick knows. Associate Editor, Insanul Ahmed, believes he does. Kendrick welcomed Insanul, along with photographers Coleman and B+, to L.A. to share just what is going through his head as he prepares for this momentous occasion. We got to watch him work and see how he creates songs. Our takeaway? Despite what we think, Kendrick doesn’t seem all that stressed. Is King Kendrick ready to assume the throne?
