Kendrick Lamar gears up to release his new album later this month and it’s looking like it might even feature U2

After exclaiming, “Y’all got till April the 7th to get y’all shit together” on new track ‘The Heart Part 4’, Kendrick Lamar sent hungry rap fans into a frenzy. Could this be the date that we’d all finally hear the follow up to his modern masterpiece ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’? April 7th came and the album… sadly didn’t; but the Compton MC didn’t leave his supporters with nothing.

The as-of-yet untitled album is now up for pre-order on iTunes with an anticipated release date of April 16th. A credit list is also included with the pre-order, which includes the names “C Hansen, A. Sowinski, M Tavares & L. Whitty” – AKA, U2.

Whether Kendrick has linked up with the legendary British group for a collaboration or has just sampled them is another conversation that we’re sure to have the answers too soon.
