There Will Be Guests...But Possibly Not Any Guest Rappers
In a Rolling Stone interview in September, Kendrick revealed that he had not yet approached any other MCs to provide features on his next LP. His last album, by contrast, featured cameos by Drake, Jay Rock, Dr. Dre and MC Eiht. "I have so much to say. It's almost selfish of me," Lamar said.
However, that doesn't mean that there won't be guests. "The Blacker the Berry" sports a cameo by dancehall star Assassin, who previously assisted on Kanye West's "I'm In It." And, in a Billboard interview, producer Terrace Martin added jazz pianist Robert Glasper, singer Lalah Hathaway and Anna Wise (who previously appeared on good kid's "Real") to the list of Lamar's new album collaborators.
