(AllHipHop News) There has not been a lot of information revealed about Kendrick Lamar’s forthcoming studio album, but the world is now aware that producing legend Pete Rock has worked on the follow-up to Kendrick’s Grammy nominated good kid, m.A.A.d city.

“I did some scratching and I’m on the hook on one of his songs on his album,” Rock told XXL. “I’m really excited about that. It’s just a regular hook. I can’t really sing it to you, you’re just going to have to hear it.”
After first connecting with Kendrick’s Black Hippy brethren Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul, Rock started chatting with K. Dot via text messages. That initial interaction led to the New York producer and the California emcee collaborating for the highly anticipated project.
Even though some fans are hoping and expecting Kendrick to top his classic major label debut with his forthcoming LP, the TDE rhymer says he is not letting that pressure affect him.
“If I keep focusing on, ‘I need to make something better than good kid,’ it’s going to be just that,” stated Kendrick in a recent interview. “That’s not challenging yourself. I don’t want to become that person reflecting on what has been done. What I’m doing now is the question. I’m only as good as my last word, my last hook, my last bridge.”
