Kendrick Lamar has shed some light regarding his much-anticipated new album in Rolling Stone's Fall Music Preview. He promises to bring "aggression and emotion," but not many guest verses.

"I have so much to say! It's almost selfish of me," Lamar told Rolling Stone.

Lamar's new album, his first since 2012's massively well-received good kid, m.A.A.d. city is rumored for an October or November release.

The 27 year-old Compton rapper hints that his new material will be somewhat of a continuation of the autobiographical themes found on good kid, m.A.A.d.

city: "There was a lot I left off of good kid - it could have been a 30-track album. There are a few new tracks that can tie in with what I was talking about."

Aside from these new tidbits, we really don't know much else - aside from the fact that some of the production will be handled by Dr. Dre and Digi+Phonics, the in-house production team from Lamar's label.

In other news, Lamar was recently praised by Taylor Swift, who revealed that she likes to jam "Backstreet Freestyle" when feeling, umm, victimized.

Lamar responded to the Associated Press, "I appreciate Taylor Swift for supporting not only my music, but just the Hip Hop culture."?

While it might be awhile before we hear any new solo material, Lamar has recently been tearing up the charts thanks to his features on Flying Lotus' "Never Catch Me" and Jeezy's "Holy Ghost."
