Is album number four about to drop?

Kendrick Lamar has shared a cryptic Instagram post this morning (March 23), which fans are already speculating could be a reference to his new album.

Lamar has deleted every post from his account, save for one image containing the Roman numeral four – presumbably a nod to his fourth release. The Compton rapper’s debut album landed in 2011, with Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City following in 2012 and To Pimp A Butterfly in 2015.

Earlier this month, Lamar revealed that he had been working on a “very urgent” new album about “how wayward things have gone.”

To Pimp a Butterfly was addressing the problem,” Lamar said in an interview with The New York Times style magazine T. “I’m in a space now where I’m not addressing the problem anymore. We’re in a time where we exclude one major component out of this whole thing called life: God. Nobody speaks on it because it’s almost in conflict with what’s going on in the world when you talk about politics and government and the system.”

FACT has reached out to Lamar’s representative for comment.
