UPDATE: This has been confirmed as fake by the president of TDE.
This could be huge. A user on the Rap Genius forums turned up an image of what they claim is an alleged tracklist for Kendrick Lamar’s album as well as a potential cover. Judging by this album cover, the LP will be called awaken, and a close look at the tracklist shows a theme of violence throughout – “Call To Arms,” “The Line Of Fire,” etc. It’s no stretch of the imagination to think Kendrick is coming with another concept album.
Guests seem to include George Clinton, Ron Isley, Pete Rock, Jay Rock, and Dr. Dre. Clinton said he’s been working with Lamar, Pete Rock told XXL he’s on the hook of a song for Kendrick’s album, and Ron Isley showed up in the video for “i,” making the tracklist seem even more plausible.
Still, we’re skeptical. We want these two images to be real, but they don’t feel right. Check out the alleged tracklist and cover below.
