    heads up, im already smelling all the wiz khalifa dick ridas coming straight for kendrick lamar...

  • Good Kid in a Mad City was/is gonna be his major label debut and he said in a couple interviews it was only a tentative title and that he had a few others in mind but didn't wanna put 'em out there.

    Can't wait for this though, this dude is my fav rapper.

  • @YMC I clicked your shit homie shits pretty Wack my nigga go back to the drawing board you sound dead rapping and maybe that's cause you should kill yourself my nigga

  • Yeah

    @RussDa59 naw OD was not a mixtape.

  • DP

    @4ozdroupout what does wiz khalifa have to do with kendrick lamar? I'm pretty sure his name was never on this post.

  • Cali760

    Can anyone name his other two projects?
    All I know is the O.D. project...

  • Cali760

    NVM I got it.

  • M&M

    Um... Don't you mean debut album???

  • M&M

    Oh, and btw... His first two so-called solo albums were mixtapes...

  • an EP is different than a mixtape and OD was not a mixtape. they both had original beats done by Mixed by Ali and done by SounWave.

  • kb

    yea its his debut ... meka doesn't know what he's talking about

  • kdot

    doktor_kosmo this is his first official studio album

  • red

    And for the fans Kendrick also has C4 and No Sleep to NYC. Supposedly there's another tape too but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

  • LordMort

    ^ Call it mixtapes then...

  • @kdot ok but like Meka said it's his "3rd Solo Album"

  • yes

    tde ent.
    kendrick blowin up big 2011

  • @kdot read @a comment

  • the third ear

    its his 3rd Solo Project you idiots..he even said it on his twitter..there's a difference between a album and a EP and a album and a mixtape...Kendrick Lamar EP is a EP!..Overly Dedicated is a MIXTAPE..Section 80 is a ALBUM

  • P.

    look up the definition of album - a mixtape is an album. the "EP" was something like 17 tracks first of all and 2nd guess what...it's also an album

  • Dorian

    Let us go

  • JordansOrgans

    Damn, I'm fuggin amped now

  • @abake6

    album..mixtape..ep..lp...who gives a fuck what they are?

    ITS QUALITY MUSIC...just enjoy it.

    when he's ready to drop his real album, go out and support it. until then be appreciative of the fact he givin us free music.

  • hella amped for this release though, believe that.

    i made a megapost of everything he's done AS Kendrick Lamar. that should answer all of your questions.

  • as far as the stuff he's released as K.Dot... it's not really my style. y'all can look it up if you want to, but he's a lot different (and better imo) of an artist now.

  • Maga D

    GET IT.

  • unc23

    still waiting...............

  • figgy


  • Damnnnnn......this track just turned me onto Kenrick Lamars shit....FIREEEEEEEEE....POWERful Music


    look up the definition of album – a mixtape is an album. the “EP” was something like 17 tracks first of all and 2nd guess what…it’s also an album
    wtf yo!? mixtape = album?! GTFOH... more like a compilation w/ "freestyles" (emcee's rappin over other rappers beats), mixed and/or hosted by a d.j. at best.
    plus kendrick's "EP" stands for "experience"... just to let yall know...
