Fresh off signing a new deal with Dr.Dre and Interscope, Kendrick Lamar continues to ready his major label debut, Good Kid in a Mad City. Over the weekend while at SXSW, the Compton rapper took some time out speak on his new LP, as well as recording with Dre.

In K.Dot’s interview with Fuse, he spoke on the follow-up to Section.80, Good Kid In A Mad City:

“It’s on the way. I’ve really just been keeping it in-house. The people I came up with on Section.80. I want to lock in with them first, because these are people that know my sound, and I know their nichesm so it meshes properly.”

As Kendrick continued, he spoke on working with Dr.Dre:

“Love it. Every time we’re in the studio – energy. I wasn’t in the studio back in the day when he was rocking with Snoop on The Chronic, but I can tell he had that same energy and that same vibe. And what it do, it just elevates me and motivates me to go even harder.”
