Kendrick Lamar’s Album Appears On iTunes A Week Early

Kendrick Lamar‘s new album To Pimp A Butterfly is scheduled for release on March 23rd but the album has been mistakenly placed on iTunes one week in advance. That’s right, iTunes of all places leaked the new Kendrick Lamar album.

A leak usually happens when somebody at a retail store or distribution plant gets their hands on an album and uploads it to the internet before it’s official release date. But in Kendrick Lamar‘s case, things have happened entirely different.

Fans of Kendrick Lamar can buy To Pimp A Butterfly on iTunes now. Beware, only the clean version is available. If you want a dirty copy, you have to wait till March 23rd. Or until somebody leaks it the old fashioned way. We here at Rap Dose don’t encourage or promote being a pirate though. We also won’t judge you if you just gotta hear this album early. Heck, have you heard The Blacker The Berry?

UPDATE: Nevermind. Explicit version out now.
