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.
Kendrick Lamar blew away expectations with the first single "i" from his soon-to-be released sophomore album. The feel good anthem shows a more versatile matured side of the artist and today we get a fittingly warm official music video. Following Kendrick on a cinematic journey through the streets of LA the video paints the perfect visual for the single. Watch below and you can pick up your copy through iTunes. Enjoy!

Flying Lotus' forthcoming album You're Dead! serves as a concept album depicting the journey of death through musical voyage. Steven Ellison is the maestro behind Flying Lotus and he continues to push musical boundaries with his fusion of Jazz and electronic production on You're Dead!. Enlisting the talents of lyrical wizard Kendrick Lamar on "Never Catch Me", we got to hear the amazing chemistry between the two artists.
One view on the meaning of the video is it reflecting on the concept behind the album as a young boy & girl experience death and seemingly jump back to life in an energetic dance during their funeral ceremony, but remain unnoticed by those in attendance. The children have a ghostly presence as they dance out of the ceremony only to hop into the hearse and cheerfully drive away as if they've just been freed. We can only expect more collaborations between these two L.A. based legends in the making as they have expressed great excitement to be working together. Be sure to grab You're Dead when it's released Oct 7 via Warp Records.

He stops by Big Boys Neighborhood radio show to lay down a fierce 6 minute long freestyle further cementing the unreal skills that he possesses.

After releasing his debut studio album Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City, Kendrick Lamar went from being a promising new rapper out of Compton to one of the most respected faces in hip-hop coached by Dr. Dre himself. Today we get the new single from Kendrick since his Grammy nominated album titled "i", which could be the first song from his forthcoming album. Packing an epic intro, instantly catchy guitar focused production and mixture of rapping some choruses and unreal verses. If this is a taste of what we can expect, his new record could potentially match or top m.a.a.d. city if that is even possible. Listen to this instant hit and be thankful that Kendrick is back. Enjoy!
