Kendrick Lamar's New Album Delayed Release? Snoop Dogg Collaborates with Rapper on Latest Songs, Music
Kendrick Lamar's new album is yet to be released since the success of "m.A.A.d. city" in 2012. But, fans can possibly hear his songs in the musical festivals believed to be in included in his new album.
As cited in News Everyday, the 27-year-old rapper will be attending the upcoming 2015 Sasquatch! Festival. This will take place during the Memorial Day weekend (May 22 to 25) at Gorge Amphitheater in Quincy, Washington. He will also headline the festival together with other great artists like Robert Plant & the Sensational Space Shifters and Modest Mouse.
During the 14th edition of the festival, aside from Lamar, there will also be other great performers like Lana Del Ray, James Black, Spoon, Ryan Adams, the Decemberists, St. Vincent, the New Pornographers, and more to perform.
Meanwhile, Lamar is reported to have collaborated with another great rapperand the "Drop-it-like-it's-hot" hitmaker Snoop Dogg. Through his Instagram account, he posted his photo together with Lamar captioned "Work.!! k. Dot."
Latin Post detailed that Snoop was being speculated to be one of the artists included in Lamar's new album as a follow-up to the last album m.A.d.d. city last 2012. The song may perhaps appear to Snoop's new project "Bush" with Pharell Williams as the producer.
According to the same source, Peter Rosenberg, the co-host of New York radio station discussed about Lamar's four-track preview with his upcoming LP.
He said, "After the interview, I was privy to hear some of the new music of Kendrick Lamar that will appear on his next album dropping some time in early 2015." He also gave comments about TDE rapper's improvement as an artist, "Kendrick Lamar somehow has developed even more, gone to another level. He's talking about Black righteousness. He's talking about Africa. There's social commentary."
Lamar expressed his emotions behind the success of his previous album as reported by XXL. They noted that he was even initially doubtful to the album's success, however, it was the otherwise when he had heard the tracks himself. "This is it, man. Nobody heard this story and if you heard it, you heard it in bits and pieces but I'm finna put it to you in a whole album - from Compton, from the hood, from the streets - it's a whole other persepective and light, I'ma go back and do the skits just like how Biggie and Dre and Snoop and 'Pac did it."
Perhaps, the reason why he had kept his next album details is because he wanted to have some "genuine space" and everything's personal to him as revealed in his statement, "When it comes to my music, it comes from a genuine space where I'm already spreading myself wide to the word. So during the process in creating it, that time is for me, personally. That's for my heart..."
