Kendrick Lamar Pushes Back Album Release

Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar fans will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on his album. The Compton rapper’s highly-anticipated debut has been pushed back a few weeks.

Interscope Records has officially announced Monday, October 22, as the new release date for good kid, m.A.A.d city. It was previously slated for October 2.

Crowned the “new King of the West Coast” by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, the 25-year-old captured the attention of Dre with his 2010 mixtape O(verly) D(edicated) and earned wide praise with his indie-issued album Section.80. Earlier this year, he performed alongside his mentor Dre at Coachella.

So far, the album has spawned the Dre-assisted single “The Recipe” and the T-Minus-produced “Swimming Pools (Drank).” He has also recorded a collaboration with Lady Gaga called “Partynauseous,” which is expected to make the cut.

Prior to the album’s release, Kendrick will headline the “BET Music Matters” tour with special guests Stalley, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock. See an itinerary below.

    I dont know why ppl like to make it seem like its a Terrible thing to push back albums, The label doesnt just push back albums for fun, They do it for promotional reasons, To give the artist more time, So that they have a better chance of there project doing good, Plus there might be legal problems involved like clearing samples and shxt like that, Even the biggest of artist on different labels get their projects pushed back for various reasons, Both Drakes albums were months,Wayne’s album,Good Music album just got pushed back just to name a few, so its doesnt matter wat label it is!Its not as simple as just makin music and puttin it out, There’s alot of business involved, You niggxz need to learn the business side of things be4 yawl start gettin all up tight about shxt! smh
