    King Kendrick is back.


    On February 28, 2014, during an interview with Billboard, it was revealed that Lamar is planning to put out a new album in September 2014. During the same interview with Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith and Dave Free, the possibility of a debut effort from the Black Hippy collective appearing in 2014 was revealed. On July 31, 2014 it was announced that Lamar would premiere his short film "m.A.A.d" at Sundance's inaugural NEXT Fest in Los Angeles on August 9. The film is inspired by good kid, m.A.A.d city and was directed by Kahlil Joseph, who had previously worked with Lamar on the Yeezus Tour.

    On September 23, 2014, Kendrick Lamar released a song titled "i", as the first single from his third studio album. On November 15, 2014, Lamar once again appeared on Saturday Night Live, as the musical guest, where he performed "i", as well as "Pay For It", alongside Jay Rock. Through his appearance, with blackout contacts and his braids partly out, Lamar payed homage to New York-based rapper Method Man, whose debut album Tical, celebrated the 20th anniversary of its release.

    Kendrick Lamar’s next album might be one of the genre’s most anticipated releases, and, thanks to Hot 97′s Peter Rosenberg, we now know a little bit more about what we can expect from King Kendrick.

    “Kendrick Lamar, somehow, has developed even more, gone to another level,” Rosenberg, who listened to four as-yet-unheard songs off of the album, says in a new video from his “THE REALNESS” series. “He’s talking about black righteousness. He’s talking about Africa. There’s social commentary. There’s all kinds of deep thoughts.”

    Warning, severe d-ck riding ahead:


    Rosenberg, who says the album will be released in early 2015, says the songs he’s heard could end up becoming some of the MC’s most popular tracks. In fact, Rosenberg says this new album has potential to surpass good kid, m.A.A.d. city. “This next album is gonna be as good as good kid, m.A.A.d. city,” he adds. “It may even be on a different and higher level.”


    Watch Kendrick's performance of his first single "i" on SNL:



    2015 is going to be a hell of a year for Hip Hop. Section Eighty, get ready.

    Just waiting on the release of King Kunta :blunt:

    I really don't know what the hold up is, we've been getting bits and pieces from Kendrick and Jay Rock, but when is it all really gonna take effect? Dates, tracklists, cover art, etc?

    Let me know if you can edit your thread title some how. I think its done by editing your post.

    I wanted this to be available so people can change [TBA] to the date and stuff like that.

    I'm hoping we could get Drake and Kendrick on the same day. Not only will it spice up their so-called competition, but it will show how well they stand against each other.

    I have no doubt that Drake would sell more, but I'm confident Kendrick would make the better album. Would love to see this.

    Kendrick would definitely steal a good portion of Drakes sales however. If they had a Kanye/50 thing go on, I think Kendrick would have an unexpected victory ala Kanye
