After dropping the singles “i” in late 2014 and “The Blacker The Berry” last month, the highly anticipated third studio album by Kendrick Lamar finally came out today. To Pimp A Butterfly isn’t just a worthy follow-up to his major-label debut, good kid, m.A.A.d city it is also exactly what rap needed right now. In times of stupid short breath rhymes on trap beats K Dot brings back good old Jazz and Funk elements. Guest appearances by George Clinton, Snoop Dogg, Bilal, Anna Wise, Thundercat, Rapsody, James Fauntleroy & Ronald Isley proof that he’s not just playing around!
