Is Kendrick Lamar Releasing A Gospel Rap Album?


Kendrick Lamar has never been one to hold his tongue.

He addressed his upbringing in his first album good kid, m.A.A.d. city, systematical problems in his second album To Pimp a Butterfly, and a little bit of everything on his untitled unmastered. project full of unreleased music. His next album, he says, will focus on a higher power.

It won’t be a gospel rap album, but it will acknowledge how God orchestrates everything around us.

“I’m in a space now where I’m not addressing the problem anymore,” he told New York Times. “We’re in a time where we exclude one major component out of this whole thing called life: God. Nobody speaks on it because it’s almost in conflict with what’s going on in the world when you talk about politics and government and the system.”
