Kendrick Lamar Unveils New Album Artwork

After releasing “The Blacker The Berry” and mysteriously sharing a pre-order link to his upcoming album, Kendrick Lamar took to Instagram to unveil the album artwork for his highly anticipated project.


The caption for the photo features a seemingly cryptic quote that ultimately correlates with album artwork. The portion of the quote in uppercase letters suggests the album title will be To Pimp A Butterfly. Be on the lookout for Kendrick’s official confirmation.

UPDATE: According to DJBooth, a tracklist for To Pimp A Butterfly was unveiled by a representative from the IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry), who is also working on behalf of Universal Music Group.
