“I didn’t really have anything to say about it. It just sounded like an ambitious thought to me. That’s all it was,” he told Billboard magazine. “I know good and well that Kendrick’s not murdering me, at all, in any platform. So when that day presents itself, I guess we can revisit the topic.”
The “All Me” rapper also spoke on his forthcoming album Nothing Was The Same, set to hit shelves September 24.
“There’s a lot less sort of ambient ballad moments on this album where I’m searching or longing for something. That sentiment is gone. Now I’m just kind of like, ‘You know, I’m 26, I don’t know what the f*** else I could be doing better than this. I feel incredible about how I’m able to support my family and friends and how supportive my family and friends have been of me,’” he said.
He continued, “A lot of people get on and it’s like they’re just waiting to get more on. They’re always waiting for a bigger moment to come. But I’ve started to realize that this is it, this is the moment. And it reads, you know? People come up to me now and they’re like, ‘Man, you look good! You look like you’re happy.”
