After exclaiming, “Y’all got till April the 7th to get y’all shit together” on new track ‘The Heart Part 4’, Kendrick Lamar sent hungry rap fans into a frenzy. Could this be the date that we’d all finally hear the follow up to his modern masterpiece ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’? April 7th came and the album… sadly didn’t; but the Compton MC didn’t leave his supporters with nothing.
The as-of-yet untitled album is now up for pre-order on iTunes with an anticipated release date of April 16th. A credit list is also included with the pre-order, which includes the names “C Hansen, A. Sowinski, M Tavares & L. Whitty” – AKA, U2.
Whether Kendrick has linked up with the legendary British group for a collaboration or has just sampled them is another conversation that we’re sure to have the answers too soon.
