In an interview with the ‘New York Times’. Kendrick says we are in a time where we are excluding a major component. God.
He said, “I think now, how wayward things have gone within the past few months, my focus is ultimately going back to my community and the other communities around the world where they’re doing the groundwork. ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ was addressing the problem.
I’m in a space now where I’m not addressing the problem anymore,” he said. “We’re in a time where we exclude one major component out of this whole thing called life: God. Nobody speaks on it because it’s almost in conflict with what’s going on in the world when you talk about politics and government and the system.”
The interviewer asked Lamar on whether his new album would solely focus on religion, and the emcee replied, “It’s very urgent.”
He also congratulated Chance The Rapper on his Grammy saying “Congrats bro. God is moving!”. Is Kendrick going to follow the footsteps of Chance The Rapper?
He has mentioned his faith in interviews and in the intro to Good Kid, m.A.A.d City. “Lord God, I come to you a sinner, and I humbly repent for my sins. I believe that Jesus is Lord. I believe that you raised Him from the dead. I will ask that Jesus will come into my life and be my Lord and Savior. I receive Jesus to take control of my life that I may live for Him from this day forth. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for saving me with your precious blood. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
All we can do is wait.
