Of course, James has demonstrated his pull with Lamar's Top Dawg Entertainment camp before, with a tweet he sent to the label president resulting in the arrival of the rapper's untitled unmastered. last year.
As previously reported, DAMN features 14 new tracks from the hip-hop icon that include collaborations with Rihanna ("Loyalty") and U2 ("XXX"). Other names tied to the project include TDE mainstays DJ Dahi and Sounwave, Atlanta beatsmith Mike WiLL Made-It, BADBADNOTGOOD, the Alchemist, Cardo, 9th Wonder and "J. Blake."
DAMN marks the rapper's first full-length release since last year's untitled unmastered. collection. That followed Lamar's 2015 album To Pimp a Butterfly.
