During a recent interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music, the rapper spoke on the differences between his latest album and “To Pimp a Butterfly.” Kendrick told Lowe, “‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ [was] the idea of changing the world and how we approach things” while “‘DAMN.’ [is] the idea of: ‘I can’t change the world until I change myself.’ So when you listen to records like ‘PRIDE.,’ ‘HUMBLE.,’ LUST.,' and ‘LOVE.,’ these are all just human emotions and me looking in the mirror and coming to grips with them.”
