TDE’s Ab-Soul Teases Upcoming Kendrick Lamar Album

It looks like Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar is making a full-fledged comeback in 2021. The Grammy-winning MC’s return to the live-show circuit was announced recently, and Top Dawg Entertainment’s Ab-Soul reveals a new K. Dot album is coming this year.

Ab-Soul Says Kendrick Lamar Album Is On The Way

TDE artist Ab-Soul went on Twitter to talk about his next album, which fans have been waiting for since 2016’s Do What Thou Wilt. Ab-Soul tweeted that his next project is “on the way,” and when a fan asked if that “on the way” also refers to Kendrick Lamar, he replied simply “Yup.”


Kendrick Lamar’s 2021 European Comeback

It’s been announced Kendrick Lamar will headline Denmark’s Roskilde Festival in June 2021. The lauded lyricist has popped up with a few cameos here and there, but has been mostly quiet since dropping the Grammy-winning Damn album in 2017.

We are on the threshold of a new year, and we think there is a need and reason to be hopeful. That’s why we’re revealing another act for next year’s festival (#rf50). We’re thrilled to announce that rapper, songwriter, producer, Pulitzer Prize winner Kendrick Lamar (@kendricklamar) will return to the festival in 2021. An artist like Kendrick Lamar doesn’t just make music that fits our current age, he also helps shape it. He is capable of giving a voice to those who might be needing it, and this kind of artist is essential to have right now. Have a great New Year and see you in 2021!
