It's time to lend an ear for the newest album drop from Kendrick Lamar. The highly anticipated release came late Sunday night and it's filling the ears of every rap fan across the planet. Lamar continues to maintain his status as a man filled with the gospel of introspection. 'To Pimp A Butterfly' is another testament to this well known reputation. The New York Times discussed the details of the album with Kendrick Lamar:
"Following the success of his major label debut, “good kid, m.A.A.d. city,” in 2012, the rapper Kendrick Lamar did not indulge in earthly luxuries. Instead, he got baptized.
That album was the story of his redemption, not just from street gangs through rapping but from a life of sin by embracing Jesus Christ. His long-awaited follow-up, “To Pimp a Butterfly” (TDE/Aftermath/Interscope) is about carrying the weight of that clarity: What happens when you speak out, spiritually and politically, and people actually start to listen? And what of the world you left behind?"
