A music blog has solved the mystery of Kendrick Lamar's rumoured second album. The speculations surfaced just hours after DAMN.'s release and had the internet wondering for days after.
Fans believed that DAMN.'s Good Friday release represented Kendrick’s death and that a second album would be released on Easter Sunday, titled NATION, representing his resurrection. When put together, the entire project would then be DAMNATION.
When NATION didn't arrive, the theory died down. However, in his interview with Zane Lowe, the only interview Kendrick has done since DAMN.'s release, Kendrick revealed two very telling points about the two album concept, that nobody picked up on until now.
The first was in their discussion about 'BLOOD.' the opening track that sees Kendrick shot dead at the end of the tune.
Lowe asked: “Is it the beginning of the end or the end of the beginning?” “I can’t tell you that. That’s what I can’t tell you,” Kendrick grinned. “Come on, now. That’s the whole thing!,” he continues.
