In the final installment with TheWellVersed and the DopeHouse's sitdown with Kendrick Lamar, the Compton kid reveals he has a slew of unreleased tracks from the Section.80 recording sessions, including a track with DJ Khalil that references the incredibly dope female group KING (how are sampled on "Chapter Six" from Section.80).

"I haven't gotten in touch with King, which is crazy. I did this record with DJ Khalil with some King references, which is a crazy, crazy record. I've got so much from the stash of Section.80 that's insane. That's one of the records that just didn't make the cut. It could have, but it didn't."

He also spoke on the reasons behind Lady Gaga's absence from GKMC and what's he got planned for next.

"I come from a world where we didn't have any deadlines," he says. "Shake knows. We'd have samples on it, reciting Jay-Z and Biggie lyrics in certain lines and the major label world is one I didn't understand. Now that I'm signed there's so many business politics that I didn't understand and I couldn't get the concept of a deadline."

"Dr. Dre just asked me that today," Lamar says when discussing his plans for a good kid, m.A.A.d city follow up. "I told him a few ideas for what's next but he was like 'No. Sit back for a second and let this one breathe and let people really digest it. Right now people are excited but once everyone digests it and really lives with it, they'll learn to love it and respect you even more. You'll be in high demand because you put your best foot forward.'"

Also, check TWV for EIC Andreas Hale's opinions on why the mostly positive reception (damn you, Shyne!) good kid, m.A.A.d city has garnered is not a bad thing.

    Kendrick Lamar has a gift. His new album is a work of art and he really did a great job on Section.80 too.

  • j

  • A

    O no don't listen too much to Dre about letting it breathe. U may never drop again lol

  • Ermac

    We need those unreleased Section 80 tracks yo, GKMC is cool but it gets boring real quick

  • notevenmad

    gkmc was pretty dissapointing... nothing really standouts to me on it other then money tree, first half of mad city and swimming pools... most over hyped album of the year

  • yp

    ^ co/sign.. With all the hype surrounding this album, I thought it was going to be incredible. I mean, people are calling it a classic! I bought it, gave it a few spins, and thought it was a dope album. But I was expecting more. Some songs were just, aight.. I don’t know how people praising it so much.

    Besides that, glad Kendrick getting all this recognition. Dude deserves it based on his past work alone. Compton salute.

  • flo

    yall expect the world or something who knows what you niggas think.

  • justsayin

    dear kendrick,
    though the realest...certain conversations should not be repeated.

  • cloud9

    But here's the thing, you can't fault an artist/album because PEOPLE keep hyping shit up. And I believe people are praising based on the current status of Hip-Hop and what people actually try to release and call albums today.

  • EricDean

    In a genre where people celebrate lines like "she got a big booty so I call her big booty" and "put a house up on that ass, that's an ass-state" ... of course, GKMC is going to STAND OUT. Putting hip-hop back on track. It was needed.

  • JAY

    Instead of calling this 2dopeboyz.com we should call this IF-YOU-WANNA-SUCK-KENDRICKLAMAR-DICK-COME-HERE.com
