Kendrick Lamar Quiet About New Music With Dr. Dre
Kendrick Lamar's whirlwind week continues: The morning after debuting his video for "King Kunta" on a billboard in Times Square, Lamar appeared on the Power 105 radio show The Breakfast Club today (April 3) and discussed potential new music with Dr. Dre. Watch the complete interview above.
"If I could speak on it, then I would, but that man is a scientist," Lamar said during the interview. He also said that they're strategically holding out records because it's a thing that they're waiting on, according to Complex.
This new material would be far from the duo's first collaboration: Dr. Dre was the executive producer of Lamar's 2012 album Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, which developed into a personal relationship between the two.
"In the first studio session, we clicked so crazy," Lamar said in 2013. "It was more like a uncle-nephew kind of vibe. Because everybody sees Dre as just a gangsta rapper, but he shares the same story that I have, a good kid in a mad city. When we sit in the studio, we talk about these different streets that we both lived on and experiences he had that I can relate to being two generations younger."
