(AllHipHop Rumors) Word on the curb is that it won’t be anything like a second coming of ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’.
With growth, artists tend to leave certain influences of past projects in the past as it might literally define that time period in that artist’s life.
According to producer Syk Sense, K. Dot will be leaving the Jazz influences of his previous album in the past.
Syk Sense explained to Eric The Young Gawd that although he hasn’t heard any of Kendrick’s new songs personally, some of his friends that have been producing for the rapper have told him that this album is completely different.
“Only thing I do know is that I got homies that produced on there, that produced some crazy sh-t. Like it’s some of the hardest sh-t that I’ve heard. And the fact that it’s connected to Kendrick as well just makes it that much better. And I haven’t heard the songs, but I’ve heard the beats. F-ck, we’ve got some… some pretty heavy new guys that’s really going to make a name for themselves off these beats,” said Syk.
The alleged track list had made it appear the K. Dot would have another classic album with varied sounds and influences. According to the said list, he will collaborate with Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Sounwave, Anna Wise and Terrace Martin, and the album will also allegedly feature D’Angelo, Q-Tip, Kanye West, Andre 3000, and Anderson .Paak.
Apparently Syk Sense has since said that the beats he’s heard actually haven’t been confirmed to be on the album, so we actually don’t know what to expect at this point. Hopefully it’ll be a solid body of work.
