Kendrick Lamar Talks Kid Cudi Collab, Pushes Back Album
The release date of Kendrick Lamar‘s major label debut ‘good kid, m.A.A.d. city’ has been pushed back, but the good news is that the album, which we already know will include a Lady Gaga collaboration, is now expected to feature Kid Cudi as well.
The record will now drop on Oct. 22, according to All Hip-Hop. Lamar told San Francisco radio station Wild 94.9, “I just recently did a Kid Cudi collabo. I like Kid Cudi a lot. He got a crazy, unique [style]. I just really felt the opportunity to knock that out on this next, upcoming album.”
Lamar has earned acclaim for his independent albums, but ‘good kid, m.A.A.d. city’ will be his debut for Interscope. “We’re here to spread this music all across the world,” Lamar told MTV News, via All Hip-Hop. “It started in my backyard, in Compton, and now I’m fittin’ to take it to the next level and take it worldwide because I feel like the world needs to hear this. I’ve been ready for a long time.”
Gaga announced her team-up with Lamar on Twitter earlier this month. She wrote the song will be called ‘PARTYNAUSEOUS’ and added, “I am so excited to announce that a record I’ve been working on has now become a collaboration with @KendrickLamar for HIS ALBUM. Once @kendricklamar + I started talking about life + his forward thinking views about love + hip hop, the song became something more.”
