Kendrick Lamar has finally revealed the artwork, and title to his new album! After keeping both a secret even after making the album available to preorder on iTunes, he simply posted the artwork on his Instagram with the caption “Don’t all dogs go to heaven? Don’t Gangsta’s boogie? Do owl shit stank? Lions, Tigers & Bears. But TO PIMP A BUTTERFLY. Its the American dream nigga….” – lil Homie.”. The title “To Pimp a Butterfly” is very mysterious and has the internet going gorillas trying to speculate what the title represents. The only connection I can make is maybe it is a play on words of the book “To Kill a Mocking Bird”, which is a piece of literature I was supposed to read in my 10th grade English course, but of course I was busy listening to my iPod in class.
Preorder the album on iTunes here! and Peep the tracklist and album artwork below.
