With good kid, m.A.A.d. city, Kendrick Lamar has dropped a modern day classic…but don’t call it instant. This album was a lifetime in the making. Here’s an interview of Kendrick where he talks about just what it took to get to this point. This was not 1, not 2, not even 5 years in the making…It was 9 and it was far from easy. He talks about how much of his life he has put in his craft, thoughts of giving up, what got him through and more. In other words, he talks about GRIT: the special drive and motivation from within that’s necessary to succeed. This is the story of how the good kid made it out of the m.A.A.d. city but didn’t leave it behind. Related: Kendrick Lamar – The Heart Pt. 3 (Will You Let it Die) ft Jay Rock & Ab-Soul (Audio)
