Kendrick Lamar Announces Debut Album Release Date Via Aftermath!!

We slept on Kendrick until he got Dr Dre’s attention. Dre is an icon who doesn’t f*** with just anybody.. When he took notice of Mr Lamar, we decided to keep an eye on him. “Recipe” is brilliant and with Dre’s help, we suspect the entire album is going to be OFFICIAL!!

RapUp Magazine reports the following:

Kendrick Lamar has spoken. After much anticipation, the Compton rapper has revealed the release date for his long-awaited debut.

The album will arrive on October 2 via Top Dawg Entertainment/Aftermath/Interscope, he told R&R Productions backstage at his show in Camden Town, London.

He is working closely with his TDE production team Digi-Phonics. “I really just kept everything in-house, the people that I’ve been grinding with since day one,” said the Black Hippy leader. “They know me, they know my sound, and I feel they’re the best. It’s really tight-knit who I’m involved with.”

Aside from Dr. Dre, who appears on the first single “The Recipe,” he is steering clear of the usual names. “A lot of people get to this position where I’m at and they feel like they’ve made it, so they wanna reach out to all the big producers,” explained Kendrick. “I still feel like I need to go out and show and prove that I stand alone on my own two feet creatively, and that’s exactly what I’m gon’ do.”

While the title Good Kid, Mad City has been floating around, Kendrick has yet to officially name the album. “Let me personally announce the albumdate and ‘CORRECT’ title. Then its official,” he tweeted.
