Check out what Kendrick said about his new album on the next page…
Music publication Rolling Stone confirmed the LP’s title in a new cover feature this week.
We photographed him for the cover in Hollywood (see video from the shoot below) and visited him at his L.A. studio, where he was scrambling to finish his upcoming album, To Pimp a Butterfly, which is due March 24th. Although he was anxious, Lamar said he loves the recording process: “After [the album] comes out, it’s just a numbers game. The funnest part is making it.” (Rolling Stone)
K. Dot released the must-see artwork via his Instagram page early Wednesday (March 11).
After admitting he could not reveal the title yet or else TDE head Anthony Tiffith would get at him, K. Dot recently revealed timing played a big role in the LP’s completion.
“I had to turn that album in,” Lamar revealed. “I was on a deadline, on the clock. [The Grammys?] It’s crazy, as a kid I never thought of no Grammy. As a kid, writing raps that was way over my head. Just to be accomplished with any award it can be BET awards or anything, it’s a compliment to me.” (iHeart Radio)
