Kendrick Lamar revealed to drop sophomore album this month!
The rapper posted an iTunes link to Twitter that is a placeholder link for a new album, with a $14.99 pre-order button. The link includes a 16-song track list, with “The Blacker The Berry” as the only track with a revealed titled and it looks like the single “i” does not appear to be on the album.

The pre-oder link indicates that Lamar’s new album is expected to be released on March 23rd and a rep for the rapper has confirmed that the date is indeed official! Nothing much has been revealed about the record except for its release date and the number of tracks on it.
It doesn’t have a title (it’s just listed as [Untitled]) nor does it have much of a cover — for now it’s a big black square. This forthcoming album will make for Lamar’s follow-up to 2012’s “good kid, m.A.A.d city”. The West Coast rapper dropped the single “i” last year, and won the best rap performance and best rap song Grammys for the track last month. “The Blacker The Berry,” released days after the Grammys, has also preceded the new album.
Personally, we loved Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city album and can’t wait to see what he has in store for us next. For now, we’ll leave you with one of our favourite’s “Poetic Justice” by Kendrick Lamar featuring Drake.
Kendrick Lamar has revealed the titled and artwork for his forthcoming sophomore album release! The “B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe” rapper has named his sophomore album “To Pimp a Butterfly”, and has turned to Instagram to spread the news.

“To Pimp a Butterfly” is expected to arrive on March 23rd via Aftermath/Interscope Records. Prior to the reveal of the album name, Lamar tweeted a link to the iTunes store, which noted his album’s due release date and listed 16 tracks on the album.
Lamar released the single “i” last year, and won the best rap performance and best rap song Grammys for the track. “To Pimp a Butterfly” is the follow-up to 2012’s “good kid, m.A.A.d city”, which was nominated for the album of the year Grammy in 2014.
