Kendrick Lamar‘s “To Pimp A Butterfly” album has been officially released. The rest of the details of the collection including the tracklist and collaborators have also been announced. Most of the guest artistes on the “To Pimp A Butterfly” album are not rappers. This includes Ronald Isley, Thundercat, George Clinton, Anna Wise, James Fauntleroy, and Bilal. Rappers Rapsody and Snoop Dogg will also be featured.
According to the tracklist that was unveiled by DJ Booth, none of Lamar‘s TDE counterparts played a part in the record. The releasing of the album comes seven days earlier than it’s previous scheduled release date, the 23rd of March.
TDE Founder Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith took to Twitter to express his grievances regarding To Pimp A Butterfly‘s early arrival. “I WOULD LIKE 2 PERSONALLY THANK @Interscope FOR FUCKING UP OUR RELEASE… SOMEBODY GOTS 2 PAY 4 THIS MISTAKE !!!!” he wrote. “This is the kraziest shit ever.”
Keep calm. All is well.
