Terrace Martin breaks down the making of Kendrick Lamar’s “Real” [Video]


The good kid, M.A.A.D. city behind the scenes features keep flying in from all angles and this time we are allowed a glimpse inside man of the moment Kendrick Lamar‘s (who killed it on Saturday Night Live this weekend) “Real” through the eyes of producer Terrace Martin.

The video gives us the background on the song from the very beginning, how it was conceived, how the team was brought together and the subsequent studio work. I love these windows into the inner workings of the project. There was a massive amount of creative collaboration and hearing about the origins from one of the producers is as good as it gets.

Hopefully more of these album breakdowns will be brought to our attention.
