Kendrick Lamar took to social media on Friday to tease his “final TDE album.”

Kendrick Lamar Says He’s Producing His “Final TDE Album”



Kendrick Lamar has broken his silence and shared a new website. On Friday afternoon (Aug. 20), K-Dot posted a tweet along with a clipart image of a yellow folder, which had the words "nu thoughts" underneath it.


Leading to a written statement from the rapper announcing his next studio album, signed as “oklama.” He notably refers to it as his “final TDE album.” Find the full statement below:


I spend most of my days with fleeting thoughts. Writing. Listening. And collecting old Beach cruisers. The morning rides keep me on a hill of silence.


I go months without a phone.


Love, loss, and grief have disturbed my comfort zone, but the glimmers of God speak through my music and family.


While the world around me evolves, I reflect on what matters the most. The life in which my words will land next.


As I produce my final TDE album, I feel joy to have been a part of such a cultural imprint after 17 years. The Struggles. The Success. And most importantly, the Brotherhood. May the Most High continue to use Top Dawg as a vessel for candid creators. As I continue to pursue my life’s calling.


There’s beauty in completion. And always faith in the unknown.


Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts. I’ve prayed for you all.


See you soon enough.

While the world around me evolves, I reflect on what matters the most. The life in which my words will land next."
