Kendrick Lamar is making the media rounds in anticipation of his major label debut good kid, m.A.A.d city, releasing on October 22nd. During an interview with L.A. Leakers, the Compton, California native explained the meaning behind m.A.A.d, stating that it’s a two-pronged acronym, the second of which was inspired by a bad smoking experience.

“It’s two, two meanings. The first is ‘my angry adolescence divided,’ and the basic standout meaning is ‘my angel’s on angel dust.’ That’s the reason why I don’t smoke,” he said. “That was me. I got laced. The reason I don’t smoke, and it’s in the album. It’s in the story. It was just me getting my hands on the wrong thing at the wrong time, being oblivious to it.”

K. Dot also said that the and T.I. have a collaboration for the Southern rapper’s upcoming album Trouble Man, and that he will drop his project with J. Cole “out the sky.”
