Surprise! Kendrick Lamar Dropped A New Album Last Night

Rapper Kendrick Lamar dropped a fully-formed, surprise album last night. In true millenial fashion, he announced Untitled, Unmastered on Twitter:

Lamar has been hinting at a new album for a while; on Thursday, the artwork and album tracks popped up on Spotify. According to Entertainment Weekly, it sounds like this has been in the works for a while:

Lamar has performed several untitled, unreleased songs on late night shows, including on The Colbert Report and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and he said last month he had a “chamber” of unreleased material that didn’t make it onto his sophomore album: “I think probably close to 10 songs that I’m in love with that I’ll still play and still perform that didn’t make the cut,” he explained.

It’s nice to have something new hot on the heels of his amazing performance at this year’s Grammy awards.
