Can you believe that Kendrick Lamar has not gifed us a full new album since 2017’s critically-acclaimed ‘DAMN’!? Sure he has guested on a few bangers and ANCHORED the ‘Black Panther’ soundtrack…but we have gone YEARS without an ALBUM…. In a cryptic message left of a new website oklama.com, K-Dot gives us some INSIGHT on what’s to come and his FINAL album on TDE
I spend most of my days with fleeting thoughts. Writing. Listening. And collecting old Beach cruisers. The morning rides keep me on a hill of silence.
I go months without a phone.
Love, loss, and grief have disturbed my comfort zone, but the glimmers of God speak through my music and family.
While the world around me evolves, I reflect on what matters the most. The life in which my words will land next.
As I produce my final TDE album, I feel joy to have been a part of such a cultural imprint after 17 years. The Struggles. The Success. And most importantly, the Brotherhood. May the Most High continue to use Top Dawg as a vessel for candid creators. As I continue to pursue my life’s calling.
There’s beauty in completion. And always faith in the unknown.
Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts. I’ve prayed for you all.
See you soon enough.
So we DO know he is and has been in the studio……
Back in June, it was announced that Lamar would headline the Day N Vegas festival, which will take place November 12th through 14th at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds. The set is billed as Lamar’s only live performance of the year and the poster suggested it will be a retrospective of sorts, rather than a chance to debut or tease new music (“From Section.80 to Damn,” the poster reads, referencing Lamar’s first and latest album).
Now we have something to LOOK forward too…..
K-Dot is COMING… and the world has been waiting for his return…
