Like a viscous drop bear pouncing on an unsuspecting swagman, a new album from hip-hop throne occupant Kendrick Lamar has sent shockwaves throughout the internet, following a surprise announcement that we’ll be getting new material from the masterful emcee earlier today. Dubbed untitled unmastered, the surprise release seems to be a collection of the intense, powerful “untitled” tracks Mr Duckworth has been performing for the past year or so, already delivering us three of these gems, with a total of 8 on the album; for those not gifted at mathematics, that’s five unheard new Kendrick tracks for you.
Guests on the album include Cee-Lo Green and Egypt, 5-year old son of Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys who helped produce “Untitled 07”.
This revelation also makes things even more interesting for Kendrick’s upcoming appearances at Auckland City Limits , Australia’s Byron Bay Bluesfest, and his Melbourne/Sydney Sideshows. Will he be performing any of these 8 tracks? We’ll be finding out later this month.
