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.
