Last Thursday night I was home alone because my wife’s band was on the road. I think around 8:30 I read a Stereogum article that stated that Spotify had put up an image, tracklist and album title for a new Kendrick Lamar album. About a half an hour later it was up on iTunes and I was downloading it. I listened to it straight through and then I started over again one it was over. It’s been constant in my headphones since.
These tracks are outtakes from the To Pimp a Butterfly sessions. That album took several years to complete. This doesn’t sound like an album of cast off tracks and B sides however. It feels cohesive, and intimate, and full of notes of jazz and soul. It’s short but sweet. Kendrick is on fire right now. He can do no wrong.
I jumped at the chance to purchase an autographed copy of the new record. If you like hip hop, if you like Kendrick Lamar then this record is for you.
Please note: Vinyl project will ship on or around May 27, 2016
Project will be hand-signed and autographed by Kendrick!
