Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp A Butterfly_cover

Somebody’s been hoodwinked.

It might be TDE. It might be us as fans and listeners. But, contrary to established belief that Kendrick Lamar’s much-awaited sophomore LP To Pimp A Butterfly would be dropping in eight days, tonight, at midnight Eastern time, the link to purchase the album on iTunes went live. The album’s clean version was available first, with its “explicit content” version being available for purchase shortly after. So, if you want to, you can mosey on over to iTunes right now and purchase TBAP.

However, if you’re like some of us who prefer physical copies (which will land in stores on the March 23rd date) or are still waiting until payday, then you’re still in luck – Top Dawg Entertainment has also released a free stream of To Pimp A Butterfly on Spotify, for your guilt-free listening pleasure.

The mystery within some of the album’s sixteen tracks has now been uncovered, with George Clinton revealed as the feature on intro “Wesley’s Theory,” “These Walls” being revealed as the track Dot premiered on “The Colbert Report” (albeit at a more upbeat pace in the beginning), Bilal serving as a feature on two tracks, and James Fauntleroy, Thundercat, Ronald Isley, Snoop Dogg, and Rapsody rounding things out as the known features on the LP. We’ll let you listen for yourself and establish your own early favorites for once instead of telling you ours.

Stream Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly LP down below; and feel free to cop the LP off iTunes now.
