Hold on to your britches folks, shit just got really real really quickly.
Kendrick Lamar drops new album
The one and only Kendrick Lamar has just released a brand new album called untitled unmastered, a collection of untitled tracks referred to only by dates – whether they’re dates recorded or dates performed, we may never know – and it’s awesome. Here’s the story of how it went down: Lamar had at least two performances on late night television recently where he played untitled and never-before-heard tracks, one on “The Colbert Report” and another on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Then he performed another one at the Grammy’s just last week, which was a huge hit with critics, fans, and viewers of the show.
The performance at the Grammy’s was so good, in fact, that he got LeBron James all over his case on twitter, begging Lamar to release the new tracks. Lamar tweeted back, ““Dam my nigga u on my head 2…The fans been killing me. Y’all just backed me in a corner..Give me a few days 2 think.”
And now: Kendrick has released a new album, with 8 tracks, five of which are brand new and have never been heard in public before. This album is incredible, but don’t just take us at our word: the album is available at all the usual places like iTunes, Amazon, Tidal, and Spotify. Do yourself a favor and go listen to these tracks right now, before anyone has the chance to ruin them for you before you get a first listen. Whether you’re a fan of Lamar or not, we promise you won’t be disappointed.
