DAMN. was far from disappointing for most fans of the Compton MC and the numbers don’t lie with Kendrick surpassing Drake for the title of most first week sales in 2017.
DJ Premier is arguably the influential epitome of boom bap production and he confirmed in a tweet that himself and Kung Fu Kenny worked on a few tracks for DAMN.
Obviously those tracks never made it onto the album for one reason or another, wether it didn’t fit the overall aesthetic of the project or it serves more use as stand alone tracks we won’t really know until we’re able to hear them.
One fan from Twitter posed the question asking wether the Gang Starr producer would work with Kendrick Lamar anytime soon. With the answer comes more questions like will we ever even get to hear the tracks?
Following To Pimp A Butterfly TDE released untitled unmastered, a collection of tracks that didn’t quite make it onto that project. One can only hope that we will experience these DJ Premier songs through the a similar medium.
