This news follows Lamar’s profile by the Los Angeles Times, in which he discusses the “Black Panther” soundtrack, as well as upcoming projects. “He’s friendly but cryptic, inclined toward vague generalities open to interpretation. He’s been writing long-form, but declines to articulate what it’s about, what themes are reoccurring and in what form it will eventually see release. He claims he hasn’t been working on a new album, but says that he’s constantly working. Someone in his camp mentions they’re going to the studio immediately after this.” Jeff Weiss writes.
Meanwhile, Top Dawg Entertainment executive Anthony Tiffith posted on Instagram, saying that we will not be hearing any new material from Lamar any time soon.
