Exclusive: Kendrick Lamar Refuses To Explain Good Kid M.A.A.D City Title [VIDEO]


The buzz behind Kendrick Lamar’s debut album has been bubbling over for a while now, and since we’ll have to wait until the fall to take a full listen, the rapper refuses to give away too many details. Late last week, rather than let the chatter behind the album persist, Lamar took to Twitter to announce the true title of the project as, Good Kid M.A.A.D. City, but fell short of explaining the acronyms.

Hip-Hop Wired spoke to the Compton rapper on the red carpet for the BET Awards, where he refused to explain the meaning of the title, but detailed why he used Twitter to address the masses, and if a Black Hippy album will ever truly see the light of day.

Peep the video after the jump.

    kendrick is intelligent, most rappers give out as much music as they can when they hear the slightest bit of noise about it. Kendrick and the rest of the TDE crew are getting constant pressure for that black hippy album, but these guys know to play the game whilst still making great music…

    GOOD is looking good, but really, TDE trumps all of these teams. Ab Soul, Kendrick, Schoolboy and Jay Rock are really at the top of it now… Black Hippy tracks are madness…

    Black Lip Bastard!
