Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q sat down for an interview with Billboard recently and the "good kid, m.A.A.d city" rapper answered two big questions: How does he really feel about Macklemore’s post-Grammy apology text? And when is he gonna drop a new album?

On Macklemore, Kendrick Lamar was gracious and diplomatic:

"That text surprised me, but Macklemore is a genuine dude. However it panned out, I wish him much success. He touched people’s souls, and no one can take that away. Really, the whole Grammy moment was incredible. Not everyone gets that shot."

Later in the interview Anthony Tiffith, who heads Lamar and Q’s label Top Dawg Entertainment, hinted at plans to release a new album from Lamar in September.
