He explained, ?I wasn’t in the space creatively to make any other type of record. I didn’t have the urge to. You’ve got three singles on ‘good kid, m.A.A.d City’: ‘Swimming Pools (Drank)’, ‘Poetic Justice’, and ‘Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe’. This time, I said to myself: ‘I don’t want the catchiness.’ I want people to live with [the album] and dissect it for a long time,? stated Contact Music.
