Up and coming rapper Glasses Malone has enlisted none other than Kendrick Lamar for a feature on his latest tune “Thuggin.” Kendrick steered away from his gangster rap tendencies on his new critically acclaimed album To Pimp A Butterfly, and now has a fresh verse offering his lyrical insight on what it means to be a thug. There seems to be no stopping Kdot as he keeps delivering fresh features lately with his new verses on Kanye's “All Day,” the “It’s True” remix, and his “Eye’s Above” collab with Flying Lotus. Now he gives us yet another great verse where he even brings some singing vocal effects to polish out his refreshing rhymes.

The full version of Kendrick Lamar’s “All Day” remix is finally here! We previously heard Kdot’s leaked verse, but now you can listen to it in the context of the song in it’s entirety. This version essentially swaps out Theophilus London’s verse for Kendrick, and leaves us hoping Kanye and Kendrick have more collaborative efforts up their sleeve as this remix does not disappoint. Stream the song below, and enjoy!
L.A. / Chicago R&B artist BJ The Chicago Kid has previously worked with members of TDE on Schoolboy Q’s hit “Studio,” and now this singer has enlisted none other than Kendrick Lamar for a new verse. A new version of BJ The Chicago Kid and Schoolboy Q’s recent collaboration “It’s True” has mysteriously surfaced with new verses from Kendrick Lamar and TDE’s president, Punch. This somber tune utilizes BJ’s pitched down vocals transitioning through the TDE rapper’s flawless rhyming over a groovy beat that will surely have you clicking repeat. Stream the full song below and enjoy!
The full version of Kendrick Lamar's verse on the remix of Kanye's "All Day" has surfaced, and it was exactly what we were hoping for. We previously posted a clip of this new verse and the full song has yet be released, but for now you can enjoy Kenrdrick’s full verse. We can only hope these two hip hop legends work together more often. Stay tuned for the full release, enjoy!
Update: This Kendrick verse seems to be recorded as a reference to demonstrate to Kanye how the lyrics should flow. Kendrick has writing credits on “All Day” so it would make sense for him to record a demo for Kanye to understand how it should sound

Back in November we posted a video of Flying Lotus dropping a version of “Eyes Above” with a ferocious verse from Kendrick Lamar during one of Flylo's live sets, and now we get to hear a longer clip of the highly anticipated collaboration as it was premiered in Flying Lotus's special To Pimp A Butterfly edition of his radio show.
These two L.A. artists make magic happen whenever they team up, likd we've seen on “Never Catch Me” off FlyLo's You’re Dead and “Wesley’s Theory” off Kendrick's To Pimp A Buttlerfly. There is actually an entire mixtape worth of collaborative material between these two after Flylo sent Kendrick a folder of music for TPAB, and it looks like we are starting to see some of these all sta collaborations from these trendsetters. Enjoy!

We hear the full 30 second verse from Kendrick Lamar fiercely going in on Kanye West's new song "All Day."
This is also just a few short weeks after Kanye publicly praised K-dot.
To promote the release of his critically acclaimed new album To Pimp A Butterfly, Kendrick Lamar took to the streets of LA for an incredible late night surprise performance. Kendrick pulled an epic and unprecedented move by performing on the bed of a moving semi truck for his fans in LA as he leads a parade of people running behind.
The fans were chosen by Reebok and were led to believe they were testing out the new shoes, but then were surprised to see Kdot pull out of nowhere on the truck and proceeded to perform an entire concert, while moving. Now we have the HD quality visuals of this insane 50 minute performance where Kendrick was even joined by Thundercat. Sit back and watch this very unique experience.
Kendrick Lamar has risen to one of the most talented and buzzed about rappers in the world and been teasing his sophomore album To Pimp A Butterfly. Out of nowhere he suprisese the world with the album we've all been waiting for a suprising week early.

Kendrick Lamar took the rap world by storm with his major label debut album Good Kid M.A.A.D. City, and now the Compton rapper will be delivering his follow-up album this month. Kdot's still untitled new album is set to release in under 2 weeks on March 23rd via Aftermath / Interscope Records.
In respect to the anniversary of Notorious B.I.G.’s death, Kendrick offered a freestyle over the instrumentals to Biggie’s “The What” on Big Boy’s radio show.
In the grainy recording Kendrick goes hard per usual, showing he is worthy of spitting over instrumentals belonging to one of rap’s greatest legends. This three minute freestyle shows he isn’t afraid to speak his mind with one line relating the political parties to gangs:
"Ain't nothin' new But a flow of new DemoCrips and ReBloodicans / Red state vs. a blue state / Which one you governing?”
There is little known about the next Kendrick Lamar album, but now we can expect it's release soon following Kendrick's recent tweet with a link to the iTunes preorder having a 3/23 release date. This will be the highly anticipated follow up to his platinum-selling, grammy nominated Good Kid M.A.A.D. City that served as his major label debut in late 2012. The album is titled "Untitled" and we know will include "Blacker the Berry".
UPDATE: Kendrick has confirmed the album artwork and album title are both placeholders until the actual artwork and title are revealed.
Kendrick Lamar out of nowhere just released a brand new track that is sure to be on his hyped upcoming sophomore studio album. The song, "The Blacker the Berry" is produced by Boi-1da and features an eerie downtempo synth filled beat with some smooth classic hip-hop drums. This paints a more raw side of what's to expect from the upcoming album following up "I". Enjoy!

While promoting the release of his latest album You're Dead! Flying Lotus, made it known that he was sitting on over a dozen tracks with prominent west coast rapper Kendrick Lamar. Due to music industry politics, the only FlyLo and K.Dot collab to make the album was "Never Catch Me". Now, an unreleased verse from the track "Eyes Above" (an instrumental on the album) has surfaced during a recent FlyLo live performance that features Kendrick going in hot on the beat. The verse in question was originally created during an intimate studio session between FlyLo and Kendrick. You can watch a snippet of the track below, and let's hope this collab sees the light of day in the near future.
