We’re still waiting on the new Kendrick Lamar album to drop, but in the meantime, over at the MTV website, they have some news about some new Black Hippy freestyles that are tight! As you know, K-Dot is on the new Amazing Spiderman 2 soundtrack. TDE CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith has said that the new Kendrick solo LP will be out around September of this year but that the new Black Hippy effort is likely to be out a lot sooner.
Kendrick went on to say that he’s still messing around with his new LP and isn’t sure what it’s going to sound like yet. He said that each album is a journey to him. It’s going to be cool to see where the latest one takes him. After all, he’s gone far with the music that he’s done so far. There’s no telling what this next album is going to sound like exactly, but there’s a very good chance it’s going to be even better than Good Kid Maad City.
“Yeah, Black Hippy, we’re moving around man. They’ll be getting something soon. They might get a few early freestyles or something, ’cause I know fans are heated for us,” K-Dot told MTV News correspondent Josh Horowitz on Thursday night when he walked the red carpet at “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ in New York City.
This is good news any way you look at it if you ask us. While not a Kendrick solo album, it’s going to be good to hear some new Black Hippy – especially if they’re doing freestyles. They really excel at wandering away from the ordinary and it will be interesting to see what they come up with on this one.
What do you think? Leave us a comment below and share your thoughts on Kendrick’s past music, the Black Hippy freestyles, or even what you think his new LP is going to sound like later this year. One of the signs of a great artist is that they evolve, and we’re pretty sure that there’s going to be some sort of evolution happening and that this new album is going to be even better than his last effort.
