In a new post to Instagram, Kendrick unveiled a new website called oklama.com which features one single clickable link called “nu thoughts.” Within this link contains a message to his fans.
K-Dot also drops a bombshell, noting that his next album is his last with TDE.
Kendrick Lamar’s Announcement:
I spend most of my days with fleeting thoughts. Writing. Listening. And collecting old Beach cruisers. The morning rides keep me on a hill of silence.
I go months without a phone.
Love, loss, and grief have disturbed my comfort zone, but the glimmers of God speak through my music and family.
While the world around me evolves, I reflect on what matters the most. The life in which my words will land next.
As I produce my final TDE album, I feel joy to have been a part of such a cultural imprint after 17 years,” he wrote. “The Struggles. The Success. And most importantly, the Brotherhood. May the Most High continue to use Top Dawg as a vessel for candid creators. As I continue to pursue my life’s calling. There’s beauty in completion. And always faith in the unknown. Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts. I’ve prayed for you all. See you soon enough.”
There’s beauty in completion. And always faith in the unknown.
Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts. I’ve prayed for you all.
See you soon enough.
Based on the message, it would appear as though an album is, indeed, on the way, although there is no timeline as to when it will be released.
Top Dawg Entertainment Responded to Kendrick’s Announcement:
Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith has spoken out, addressing Kendrick’s departure in his own open letter.
The whole goal when we started this thing was to make music, make money, and make history. We did those things 10 times over and then some,” he started. “TDE and its artists have provided a way to end generational curses that we were all personally born into over the last 17 years in this business.
With this being Dot’s last album on TDE, this is more of a VICTORY LAP, a celebration. I know he will be successful in whatever it is he decides to do and will have our FULL support.
As for Top Dawg Entertainment, we will continue to grow, develop and give artists the platform to expand into whatever way they choose.
Heart, Honor, Respect,
