A new tracklist has leaked online that is rumoured to be from rapper Kendrick Lamar’s upcoming fourth studio album. Lamar has not released an official studio album since his hugely successful 2015 record ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’.
Kendrick Lamar is one of the brightest talents in contemporary music and a huge amount of hype is building around his upcoming 2017 release. Since dropping his first record ‘Section.80’ in 2011, Kendrick has achieved not only commercial success on an international level, but has also been dubbed ‘the greatest rapper currently in the game’ by a number of leading music critics.
2015’s ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ peaked at number one in five different countries – including the US and UK. The record was supported by the massive hit singles ‘I’, ‘The Blacker The Berry’, ‘King Kunta’, ‘Alright’ and ‘These Walls’, and has since been certified platinum in the United States.
In the aftermath of ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’s’ incredible success, Kendrick released an experimental compilation record, that was stylized as ‘untitled, unmastered’. The record brought with it a new sound for the rapper, incorporating a number of highly regarded musical genres such as: free jazz, soul and avant-garde.
Kendrick’s fourth album is rumoured to be getting released at the beginning of April; however, a new tracklist has leaked online this week that appears to be from the upcoming record. The tracklist features a number of high profile collaborators including Kanye West, Q-Tip and Outkast’s Andre 3000.
