However, this isn’t that type of album. This isn’t a mixtape of classic songs but an original album by rap’s biggest artist. Essentially, this is Kendrick Lamar’s latest album. S not only is there a good amount of pressure but hype as well.

Well, today, Lamar tweeted the cover art and tracklist for the upcoming album and boy, is it full of heavy-hitters. In addition to Kendrick, the album includes artists like The Weeknd, ScHoolboy Q, Khalid, 2 Chainz, and Future. Needless to say, that’s just a small sample of the artists on the album. Kendrick and Top Dawg Entertainment may have outdone themselves here.
