Hot 97 unveiled the lineup for its annual “Summer Jam”concert Tuesday (March 31) with the help of a special guest.
Lamar told jocks Laura Stylez, Ebro, and Peter Rosenberg that he would like to perform songs from all of his projects when he hits the stage (June 7) in New Jersey.
He mentioned that he is pleased with the reception of his latest album, but that he really wants fans to take time and listen before they call it a “classic.”
“This is ‘sophisticated gangsta’ shit,” Kendrick told Hot 97. “This is the album that I always wanted to make. It’s what I grew up on. good kid, m.A.A.d city, I maneuvered through the cracks. I know what the fans wanted to hear.”
As for his personal favorite track off the album, right now it’s “Wesley’s Theory” but he says “it changes every week.”
Although “Wesley’s Theory” is currently K. Dot’s favorite song, he feels “i” is more impactful.
“That’s the best song I ever wrote,” Kendrick says about “i.” “Never in a million years did I think I would make a positive record coming from where I come from… It’s all God’s work.”
