Playlist of the Week: To Pimp a Butterfly

Kendrick Lamar’s latest album is brilliant. 

Just days after its release, Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp to Butterfly” has already proven to be legendary. With 9.6 million streams on its first day alone, the album garnered the most streams from an LP in a single day in Spotify history. Complex, insightful, gritty and relevant, Lamar holds nothing back with each and every ruthless rhyme, hook and sidebar.

“To me, the album is perfect for right now,” Lamar told Rolling Stone“If the world was happy, maybe we’d give you a happy album. But right now we’re not happy.” 

Is Lamar the greatest rapper of all time? Some say yes. Others say absolutely. You be the judge. Check out his latest below.
