And in a staggering change-of-pace maneuver, Kendrick Lamar again unveils his new album, this time via a private llistening session for Michael Jackson's son Prince and alternative hip hop artist Omer Bhatti.
"Had the great honor of meeting Kendrick and hearing some of his new tracks for his upcoming album with @RealOBee," Prince wrote via Twitter.
No word as yet on when the collection is dropping for the rest of us. However, we have so far received his first radio-friendly anthem (dropped via the Internet), and he shared his Stephen Colbert early listen via an on-air performance (it was The Colbert Show's final episodes, after all). Then Taraji P. Henson was given the green-light to drop one her favorite songs. So, it's happening.
Bhatti confirms, "Humble guy and the Music is on another level."
