Kendrick Lamar is set to take a deep dive into the making of To Pimp a Butterfly for the new season of The Big Hit Show podcast.

In a preview released by Spotify, K-Dot shared, “Going back into the album it was me explaining my experiences and what emotions it brought up from that experience, and tell them like, ‘Yo, it’s something bigger than Compton and where we from.’” Spotify also revealed that listeners can expect interviews with album contributors George Clinton, Rapsody and more.

To Pimp a Butterfly dropped in 2015 as the followup to Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city and went on to hit No. 1 on both the Billboard 200 and the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. It was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America the year after, and gave the rapper seven GRAMMY nominations including a win for Best Rap Album.

Take a look at the preview below. Season two of The Big Hit Show premieres February 16.
