We’re gonna have to have a talk about what constitutes a “signature”.
Earlier this year, Kendrick Lamar announced the surprise release of Untitled Unmastered, with a little added bonus for fans who got in quick in the shape of a hand-signed limited edition.
Initially released in a batch of 2,000, the records sold out so fast, they got poor Kendrick to sign another two thousand, many of which have started dropping through letterboxes around the world. It’s safe to say not everyone’s impressed.
While others still wait, some fans have taken to social media to call bullshit on the whole affair. Well, you try hand-signing 4,000 records…
A fan says Kendrick Lamar signed this for him, and he's not to happy with the signature.

That said, maybe this shouldn’t have been a surprise. A quick scan of eBay will tell you that at least he’s always been consistent.
