All Eyez On Me: Kendrick Lamar's Dense, Neurotic To Pimp A Butterfly


Kendrick Lamar doesn't make anything easy. Sunday night, he briefly broke the constantly breaking internet by issuing his new album, To Pimp a Butterfly, a full week early on iTunes and multiple streaming services; by Monday afternoon, iTunes had both frantically pulled it back down and just as abruptly put it back up again. His management at Top Dawg Entertainment protested loudly that Interscope was "fucking up" the release, but given that the well-timed leak triggered the inevitable breathless Twitter freakout and merrily coincided with a Rolling Stone cover story, one can safely assume that the world heard Kendrick's fourth full-length project as planned.
