Report: Kendrick Lamar Exploring Rock Sound on New Album


Kendrick Lamar remained out of the spotlight for most of 2019, but he may be ready to release his next album.

Rumors are swirling that the Compton rapper is nearing completion on the highly-anticipated project. Music journalist Bille Werde reports that the album is in its final stages and may feature “more rock sounds.”

“Are you interested to know that I hear from several friends that recording on the new album may finally be done? And that he’s pulling in more rock sounds this time?” tweeted Werde.

He also noted that while the album may be done, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s ready for release. “Also, just to be clear, just because recording had hit a point where folks believe it may be finished — albums go back to the studio all the time after this point, and for a million different reasons,” added Werde.
