Kendrick Lamar fans speculate on his plans to release new music this year after he was announced for the Day N Vegas festival.
When Kendrick Lamar released his last studio album, the world was a completely different place. Lil Baby hadn't released much of anything at that point. Nobody knew who Roddy Ricch was. And Megan Thee Stallion was only known for being a star student, and not a superstar rapper. It's been nearly five years since the last time the Pulitzer Prize winner dropped an album, and his fans have let him hear about that for a minute.
This week, it was announced that Kendrick Lamar had booked a festival spot at Day N Vegas later this year. Despite the fact that the billing specifies his headline gig as a performance that will range from Section.80 to DAMN., some fans are still expecting some sort of new music debut before the show in November.
