Guess that traditional album release dates are a thing of the past, as Kendrick Lamar drops his entire album a whole week before its scheduled drop date of March 23. You can stream the entire new album, To Pimp A Butterfly, above and purchase it on iTunes now.
This is the follow up album to his critically acclaimed, and our personal favorite hip hop album of the last ten years, Good Kid M.a.a.d. City. There has been a lot of hype surrounding this project since the release of its first single, “i”, back in 2014. Since then we’ve gotten just two other previews of the album with “The Blacker the Berry” and “King Kunta”, and we’ve been itching to see what Kendrick’s direction was going to take on this one. But now we have it, and it’s time to see if he will live up to the expectations.
