The hip-hop world wasn’t happy over Kendrick Lamar not winning a Grammy award for “Best Rap Album” for “good kid, m.A.A.d. city” album, but we can now start the countdown for his follow up album as reports claim it will be here in September.
According to TDE head, Top Dawg, the long-awaited album will be arriving in September.
In 2014, TDE hopes to lock and load its most ambitious slate of releases: Rashad and the label’s first nonrap signing, New Jersey-based female singer-songwriter SZA, will be coming with albums, as will original team members Jay Rock and Ab-Soul. Meanwhile, Free thinks the long-awaited debut from Black Hippy – the supergroup featuring Lamar, Q, Rock and Ab-Soul – is likely to appear in 2014; Tiffith indicates that TDE is planning to release a new Lamar album this coming September, too.

Lamar recently revealed that the only collaboration he has in mind right now is with singer Erykah Badu.
What do your lyrics say about you as a person? My lyrics say that I have morals, say that I have confidence, say I have weaknesses, say I have strong points, say l am a human being. Out of all the tracks you have written, which do you feel the most proud of now? The most proud of is tough, I’ve written a lot of tracks. If it had to be from this album, any one off this album really, sing about me, l’m real, Compton. Who will you collaborate with in the future? I’m really tight on collaborations, I always say Erykah Badu, that’s it for now, that’s always in the back of my mind. (I-D Vice)
