Kendrick Lamar new album in September 2014? Top Dog Entertainment CEO hints follow-up due this year
Kendrick Lamar may still be riding off the success of his Grammy nominated album good kid, m.A.A.d. city and his stunning re-release of "Radioactive" alongside Imagine Dragons, but the prolific young rapper is already working on a second studio album.
In a new interview with Billboard, the CEO of Lamar's label, Top Dog Entertainment, Anthony Tiffin hinted he could drop the follow-up to good kid, m.A.A.d. city as soon as September.
The release date, a mere seven months away, seems ambitious for Lamar, who as of January 24 told Radio.com (via Consequence of Sound) that he had yet to start work on a new record. "I'm still seeing what I feel like. When I really catch it, I'll be out there with it."
Lamar's second album is one of hip-hop's most anticipated releases, since the 26-year-old made massive waves in the rap game with his breakthrough effort and single "Swimming Pools (Drank)" in 2012.
Lamar's second album, which has yet to receive an official title or proper release date beyond the tentative September, won't be the only release from Top Dog Entertainment. Rap supergroup Black Hippy - which consists of Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock and Ab-Soul - will also see some sort of release this year.
