@Bntheloop Scoop: Kendrick Lamar Covers Complex Magazine August/September 2014 Issue.
Rapper Kendrick Lamar covers Complex magazine’s August/September 2014 issue in a true rap god fashion as he sits against a table with balls of paper tossed all over the floor.
While GQ nabbed Kanye West for their new issue, Complex has taken on West’s “Yeezus” tour partner, Kendrick Lamar, as their lead for the August/September issue. Both artists are working on new albums with high expectations having been set by their respective audiences, although Kendrick doesn’t reveal too much to Complex when it comes to his GKMC follow up.
On making his sophomore album better than his last: “If I keep focusing on, ‘I need to make something better than good kid,’ it’s going to be just that,” says Kendrick. “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.”
