Kendrick Lamar already has an idea for his next album.
The 'Alright' hitmaker insists he is already planning his next release and admits his 2015 offering 'To Pimp a Butterfly' had a "deeper impact than [he] expected".
He said: "As far as content, what I want to get across, I have an idea. But even that's still premature. Once I get back in that studio, things evolve into other things.
"The [previous] album just had a deeper impact than I expected, because it touched so many homes, and not just in my own community. I guess I'm just speaking words that need to be heard in these times."
The 28-year-old singer leads this year's Grammy Awards with 11 nominations and believes the nods are much bigger than him.
He added to Billboard magazine: "It's bigger than me. When we think about the Grammys, only Lauryn Hilland Outkast have won album of the year. This would be big for hip-hop culture at large ... I want to win them all."
Meanwhile, Kendrick previously insisted he never stops writing songs.
He shared: "I'm just writing, writing, writing. I keep these tablets on me until I'm inspired to go back in and make the music. I never take a break from my pen, because I pride myself on that. As far as a break from music, yeah, I can't just go in and force myself. I have to come from an original and organic place. It can come tomorrow; it can come two years from now."
