New Kendrick Lamar album leaked on Spotify


A new album by Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar has emerged unannounced on Spotify this week. The leak follows an announcement by Top Dawg Entertainment head Anthony Tiffith that the label would drop a new album this week.

The album, entitled untitled unmastered, is not yet available to stream, but the tracklisting as it appears on Spotify is as follows:

01 “untitled 01 08.19.2014″
02 “untitled 02 06.23.2014″
03 “untitled 03 05.28.2013″
04 “untitled 04 08.14.2014″
05 “untitled 05 09.21.2014″
06 “untitled 06 06.30.2014″
07 “untitled 07 2014 – 2016″
08 “untitled 08 09.06.2014″

The album is presumed to be a collection of Lamar’s “Untitled” series, a series of previously unreleased songs that the MC has been performing live on tour and in several televised appearances. The latest unveiling was at the 2016 Grammys, where K-Dot performed “Untitled 3” as a coda to his single “Alright”.

Lamar won five Grammys this year, including Best Rap Album for 2015’s landmark To Pimp a Butterfly and Best Rap Song for “Alright”.
