Miracle Monday: Kendrick Lamar releases To Pimp a Butterfly early (Audio)
Dropping an album unexpectedly has become quite a thing in the internet age where there’s no better promotion than a born-and-bred social media buzz. Beyoncé did it, Drake did it, and now Kendrick Lamar followed suit with the release of To Pimp a Butterfly, one of the most anticipated albums of 2015. Grab the download below.
Kendrick Lamar, in his humble manner, sent out a tweet about the release of To Pimp a Butterfly on Sunday night – eight days prior to the original release date. Interscope re-tweeted the post, making the whole stunt look like a well planned and executed move. However, Top Dawg Entertainment’s CEO Anthony Tiffith used Twitter to vent his wrath on the parent company, tweeting: “I would like 2 personally thank @Interscope for fucking up our release… somebody gots 2 pay 4 this mistake!!!” That, of course, could just be part of the whole strategy to create a buzz.
But who cares? K. Dot released the successor to the brilliant good kid, m.A.A.d city. The musical world has been yearning for this since the release of the first single i late last year. Visit iTunes to download Kendrick Lamar‘s To Pimp a Butterfly. Check out the tracklist below.
