While fans may still have another grueling week to wait for Kendrick Lamar’s next studio album, details on the project are gradually coming to light.
Thanks to a clever Reddit user who pre-ordered the album, the production credits for Kendrick’s currently untitled album have been made public.
If the credits are in fact correct, fans can expect tunes from 9th Wonder, The Alchemist, Mike WiLL Made It, and more.
The members of Irish rock band U2 are also listed on the production credits, although it’s unclear if the group assisted with production, are getting sampled, or contributed some other element to K-Dot’s album.
Sounwave, the TDE in-house producer who helped craft the likes of Kendrick’s “m.A.A.d city” and ScHoolboy Q’s “There He Go,” is listed on the credits as well.
Toronto instrumental group BADBADNOTGOOD, known most recently for providing the soundtrack for Snoop Dogg’s controversial anti-Trump “Lavender” remix video, are also listed.
Hours ago, after speculation that Kendrick would drop his latest effort today (April 7), the true release date for his album came via an iTunes pre-order page. The new date to mark on the calendar is April 14.
