Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly is the most anticipated hip-hop album of the year, perhaps even the most anticipated in hip-hop history, and DJBooth has the official tracklist.
The album is currently slated to drop on March 23, and in an effort to prevent the album leaking ahead of that date, Universal Music Group IFPI [see correction below] has sent out the tracklisting to what appears to be several music upload services. For example, if YouTube knows the album's song titles, it can better flag anyone attempting to upload a file with that title.
That tracklist from UMG IFPI is below. It's currently unclear whether the album actually contains no features, or they're simply not listed here. The features are now listed below as well. We'll be sure to update as any additional information becomes available.
Correction: The tracklist comes from a representative of IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry), working on behalf of UMG.
1. Wesley's Theory (ft. George Clinton & Thundercat)
2. For Free? (Interlude)
3. King Kunta
4. Institutionalized (ft. Bilal, Anna Wise & Snoop Dogg)
5. These Walls (ft. Bilal, Anna Wise & Thundercat)
