XXL caught up with Kendrick Lamar where he spoke on why he chose “The Recipe,” as the lead single of his highly anticipated Good Kid In A Mad City debut.  According to Lamar, the visual interpretation of the Dr. Dre-assisted single is currently in the editing process, and will drop within the next couple of weeks.

The 25-year-old debuted the track via Big Boy’s Neighborhood on LA’s Power 106 radio station, and was surprised by the feedback “I look at it as one of them introduction singles, I didn’t want to jump out there with one of them big over the top crossover joints, I wanted stick with what I been doing,” he said.
