It is understood that the body of work will be his last for Top Dawg Entertainment, the record label which has so far released all his albums.

The album is also expected to be released in collaboration with pgLang, the new creative venture he launched with Dave Free, the music executive, in 2020.

In 2011, the rapper dropped ‘Section.80,’ his first studio album, and released the second album titled ‘Good Kid, M.A.A.D City’ the following year.

The music star then put out his third album titled ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ in 2015.

His hiatus in the music landscape has sparked claims in some quarters that he has retired from music.
