His 2012 debut studio album, Good Kid, M.A.A.d City, cemented his arrival in hip-hop, selling 242,000 copies in its first week; and in the past year, Kendrick pulled in $9 million with Forbes estimating a good $4 million coming from touring. The business new magazine also predicted that with his mentor Dr. Dre playing a guiding role in his career the young emcee will be well on his way.

It’s just a privilege and honor to be with the people I’ve studied for years, […] I’ve seen him in the studio, and knowing how critical his ear is, it makes me want to take my time with it. On the business end, it just shows me: always be critical and smart about the moves you make. All money ain’t good money.When you’re in this situation with all the lights on you, you’re going to get a lot of offers thrown at you, but if it’s not something that you see has longevity in it, you have to pass it up.
