If the rumor mill and recent tips are true, a new Kendrick Lamar album is nearly wrapped and ready. Some juicy updates were shared recently by Isaiah Rashad, K Dot’s Top Dawg Entertainment label-mate, an Instagram live stream. While answering fan questions, the rapper said he was played a “damn near” entire Kendrick album by TDE CEO Anthony Tiffith. This news comes after previous tweets from Tiffith promised up to four new label projects before the year is out.
Kendrick has been riding a heavyweight wave all 2018, with recent headlining slots at Reading and Leeds festivals and a Pulitzer Prize for DAMN – making Lamar the first non-jazz or classic artist to receive the honor. Whether or not a rumored Kendrick LP is among this year’s planned TDE roster releases is still unclear. According to Rashad, there’s guaranteed to be some high-profile noise coming soon. “ScHoolboy Q finna drop,” the rapper said on the livestream. “SZA’s hair is green, so you know it’s going to be fire. You never know what’s going to happen.”
