Kendrick Lamar Says “Don’t Call My Album a Classic!”

The world Hip Hop may be in a total and utter tizzy over the release of Kendrick Lamar’s studio debut good kid, m.A.A.d city, but there’s one emcee out there who doesn’t believe the hype: Kendrick Lamar. Now, in a recent interview with Hot 97, the Compton emcee explains why his Aftermath/Interscope album shouldn’t be called a classic.

While speaking with Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg, K. Dot said that he doesn’t feel his critically lauded debut LP isn’t worthy of being labelled a classic yet, saying that it needs at least decade to marinate. He added that while he’s proud of the quality of his effort, he’s just happy that he was able to work with a group of people who believed in his vision.

“It ain’t a classic yet – it’s got to be at least ten years,” he said. “Oh yeah, definitely [it’s the best I could have made it], just off the fact that I had 100% creative control on it. That’s what I most proud of – [having] people that respect what I’ve been doing prior to me signing a major deal and they wanted to continue that.”
