Like the link for the album’s March 23 release date, Kendrick randomly released the cover art and title to the project. The album’s title, like the cover, can cause quite a debate, but what does ‘To Pimp A Butterfly‘ mean? “That will be taught in college courses someday,” Kendrick says. Hmmm, I would gladly take that course. For now, it’s something we could decipher ourselves.

While the title and cover art are great, it’s the lyrics we can’t wait to hear. During his chat with Rolling Stone, K. Dot opens up about depression, doubting himself and being a black kid in Compton, which is all material for words to come. “You take a black kid out of Compton and put him in the limelight, and you find answers about yourself you never knew you were searching for,” he said. “There’s some stuff in there, man. It’s a roller coaster. It builds.”

Rolling Stone, who got the chance to hear a few tracks from the album, state that fans can expect to hear ‘elements of funk, spoken-word poetry, and free-jazz, augmented by lots of live playing.’ Things that are sure to stand out in a rap album.

I don’t think any one is as hype about this album as I am. On a scale of 1-10, infinity!
