To Pimp a Butterfly is Kendrick Lamar’s third studio album. It was released on March 15, 2015, via Top Dawg Entertainment, Aftermath Entertainment, and Interscope Records. It followed his 2012 debut, good kid, . The album was very well-received upon release, eventually earning eleven Grammy nominations, and it has gone on to be hailed as one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time. The album was heavily inspired by Lamar’s trip to South Africa in 2014, where he visited historical sites such as Nelson Mandela’s jail cell, birthing recurring motifs like Apartheid, distinctions between African and American culture, or, among many others. Kendrick creates many allegorical comparisons between Compton and South Africa, especially on the song Momma.

Kendrick Lamar’s third studio album was the most acclaimed album of 2015. It received a Metascore of 96, and topped most album-of-the-year lists. The album explores what it means to be a rich black American in the 2010s. It draws influence from a variety of black musics – funk, soul, jazz, pop, and hip hop – and references cultural icons from Ralph Ellison and Marcus Garvey to Michael Jackson and James Brown. During an interview with MTV, Kendrick revealed that the original album title was going to be 2 Pimp A Caterpillar – which of course spells the acronym 2PAC

Kendrick Lamar's focus on diversity proves this much disarray among fans. The album's production alone should be hanged through the eyes of Hip-Hop fans. One should never focus on each content alone. It makes it hard for you to enjoy the album. Instead listen to the entire record with ease. Focus on its humanity, focus on its issues about culture, focus on what it says to your heart. To Pimp a Butterfly only lacks fan support. Fans are only interested in what makes up their radio top 30 or Charts as a whole. This album is no chart record, but a book. You don't see the best material in bestsellers list. You don't see the best films in Cinema's Box Office, but stories of how it actually touched lives with forever leave with us. To Pimp a Butterfly will be the only record released in the last 25 years which could ultimately contribute to your education at all the stages of life.

Lamar’s new album, To Pimp a Butterfly, doesn’t explicitly bill itself as a movie like good kid, . d city did, but the network of interlocking dramas explored here feels filmic nonetheless, and a variety of characters appear across the album’s expanse. The opener, "Wesley’s Theory", turns the downfall of onvicted-tax-dodger Wesley Snipes into a kind of Faustian parable. Snoop drops by on "Institutionalized"; Dre himself phones in on "Wesley"

Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly. will likely be one of 2015's most discussed, dissected and debated album releases, regardless of genre. To Pimp a Butterfly is Lamar firmly embracing his place at the pulpit, looking into himself and out into the world simultaneously, and using his influence to paint a powerful, enduring picture of the black American experience.

  • The actual sound of this record is amazing. It's mastered extrememly well. However, there is a fair amount of surface noise that is barely noticeable in the parts with music, but very noticeable in the spoken interludes. I tried cleaning it but it didn't change. Maybe my cleaning method isn't good enough though. Keep in mind the surface noise was there from the first play and I bought this record brand new.

  • Avoid the in-house GZ cut EU pressing and get the US pressing cut by Scott Sedillo and pressed at RTI instead. THAT'S a FANTASTIC sounding record. I've used it to test review equipment before - it's that good.

  • I have a 2015 EU press and 2015 US press. I think the EU is far superior, specifically in dealing with sibilance.The US pressing I have may not be the one you referenced, are there any indicators for me to find out who pressed it?

  • Fantastic pressing... I'm assuming by the matrix runouts that the original press was manufactured by GZ... This may be an improvement. Also much better than my US copy, which was riddled with sibilance and surface noise (Which this does not have) Definitely worth importing an EU copy if you're in North America!

  • Kendrick's a goat and he had created one of the biggest albums of this all century.

  • Why are people asking such high prices for this version? I just picked it up at the local store in the bins for the normal price. Is there something I'm missing?

  • I had got mine from Amazon as well and I highly doubt that it is anything special

  • my copy is this bought from amazon at normal price. i suppose this version's difference is the weight of vinyls, about 200 g. other issue is 180g as long as i know. but maybe it's simple mistake, all 180g copies are actually 200g...

  • Pressing sounds good, however there are a few issues. First, the center hole was a little too small so I had to shave it down a little with a razor blade. Second, both discs are slightly warped. It's not enough to get a replacement or affect the sound quality, but it bothers me a lot when I buy a new record and it's fucking warped. This might be Amazon's fault because that is where I bought it, but there's also little spots on the dead wax that look kind of wavy as well. The last issue is the gatefold sleeve. It's incredibly thin, like it bends on its own when I open or close it if there isn't a disc inside. I don't have any other records with a sleeve this thin it's kinda crazy that someone thought it was acceptable. Probably why its warped now that I think about it.But at the end of the day, the records sound good, so I can't complain too much

  • The sound on this pressing really is amazing. One of the best sounding records I own.

  • Best rapper of the decade (although that isn't saying much), a greater compliment is that he stands alongside the greats of the 90s. He makes true masterpiece albums in the classic album era style. Truly compelling albums, tied together with spoken word pieces and fantastic music, jazz can turn to funk in an instant, you don't want it to end; "Art-Rap", Hip Hop at its finest. The European vinyl pressings are excellent also.

  • one of the most over rated albums of all time

  • hahahahahha thats a good joke bruv! thats going in my diary

  • . . . . Wrong opinion . . . .

  • Best Jazz-Rap album of 2015 in my opinion -- I really found the direction Kendrick took with his sound on this album less commercial, but overall most enjoyable compared to his other works. The vinyl itself sounds great!

  • Really nice pressing. On my copy the matrix readings are:4731100-A 135561E1/D4731100-B 135561E2/H4731100-C 135561E3/H4731100-D 135561E4/H

  • Sound is OK. Tracklist is different than official release. Sleeve quality is average. Would prefer the official release.

  • Not the biggest fan of this album, or Kendrick in general, but this was a purchase I'll never regret. This pressing sounds absolutely fantastic. King Kunta is smooth as all hell.

  • really really great pressing of this wonderful album, very bassy and full of life! My only problem with this pressing is the same as whats been stated by others, the front cover image is very low quality, though with the quality of the rest of the pictures, it might have been intentional? Anyway, beautiful pressing, highly recommend!

  • This is amazing! I could not be more pleased to have one of my favorite albums on such a great pressing.

  • Obviously I got a mixed version. Sides A/B are on clear vinyl. Sides C/D on pink. Is that a mistake? I also have got the official release on black vinyl. Sound quality is much better than the bootleg version imho.

  • The EU vinyl press is very nicely done. The only "problem" I have is the overall artwork picture quality - it almost looks like a bootleg or a re-press taken from the CD.

  • Agreed, the mastering / pressing on this one is outstanding, but the front cover looks like a blown up jpeg. The back seems more detailed so maybe it's on purpose? The inside gatefold on the other hand looks nice with (semi-)transparent script printed over the liner notes and even some braille.

  • My version of this album came with a huge scratch on Wesley's Theory, in the intro where it plays "Every Nigga is a Star." At first the scratch bugged me, but then I decided to keep it because I know I'm not gonna resell it and it stop right when the song kicks in, it's perfectly placed. Which made it oddly special. This album sounds really good, very clear. My only problem with the vinyl pressing is that it has breaks between the songs, about 2 seconds, so it does not flow together as well as it does when you listen to it digitally with no delay between songs.

  • I'm pretty sure that it's part of the mix not a defect. The digital version from iTunes I have also has the crackles.

  • "Let me guess, beginner?"... snicker. Hahahahahaha. at least he or she is starting w/a great slab.

  • It stopped right as the song came in because the sample stopped there. The sample came from a vinyl record. *sigh* Let me guess, beginner?

  • The inner gatefold has a spot-gloss finish on the track titles and the brail is actually readable; worth nothing since it isn't in the release notes.Also, did anyone else get two center labels on one side? Mine had two labels on side C.

  • I got two center labels on Side D. Weird huh.

  • (Quick Review #41)Listen: #1+2I don't know what took me so long to listen to this album. I love GKMC, but this is much better. This is a masterpiece. I have so much love for the production, lyrics and themes of this album. Once again Kendrick pulls off the Concept album amazingly well. While not as obvious as the plot of GKMC, if you look into the lyrics enough you'll get it. This is truely an instant classic, and is with MBDTF as the best rap (or really any genre)album of the 2010s.10

  • To all the US buyers this version was mastered by Mike Bozzi and the UK/EU Version was mastered by Bernie G if you have any presses from pallas you will understand the difference, although I haven't heard the US version according to the comments it sounds like a right mess up, pick up the EU pressing it is spacious, detailed and full of life.

  • I don't see any versions pressed at Pallas or mastered by Bernie. Are they just incomplete entries? I do see one pressed at RTI which would be good enough for me. But if there's a Bernie out there, I'd like to make sure I get it.**My bad, I see the EU BG version

  • I have the EU version and it sounds great. Has anyone been able to make a comparison between the both ? if so which one sounds better?

  • Sounds so fucking awesome, really nice dynamics and space awareness hearing things I never heard on the digital version sounds a lot more live and fuller, the American version suffered as far as I know.

  • Anyone know what the brail says?

  • Top to bottom it reads: "A Kendrick By Letter Blank Lamar"I'm guessing unscrambled it should be "A Blank Letter By Kendrick Lamar" but i don't know.

  • What's up with all these post about the bootleg version being good?

  • There's a nearly invisible transparent inscription on the picture of Kendrick in the topleft of the inner sleeve that says: "Thank Yoy God Family Pt. 2"

  • I must have lucked out, this pressing sounds pretty good. These Walls was a weak transfer though. It's not the best pressing but it's not as bad and digital as the Maad City LP pressing.

  • The Braille letters in the gatefold say: "A KENDRICK BY LETTER BLANK LAMAR"

  • I am playing my copy for the first time and there is a constant skipping throughout the entirety of "These Walls." I thought everything sounded fantastic until that song, and I literally couldn't play through the end of the side without the skipping. Anyone else have this issue? EDIT:: I adjusted the weight on my turntable arm. though i hadn't had this issue with any other LPs, the arm definitely needed rebalancing. seems to have fixed my issue as of now.

  • The vinyl itself, sound wise is pretty good but I'm not overly fussed about the presentation. Very bland, not much included, plain paper sleeves - pretty meh in my eyes considering the amount of albums I've got recently that have come with lyric books or sheets. Considering the wait, something extra would have been niceBonus tracks wouldn't have gone a miss either, the single mix of I and the untitled live track come to mindBut heck, I'm glad I have a phsyical copy now. Not my favourite album of recent but still pretty good

  • Got my EU 2LP yesterday. Pressing/Sound quality is excellent throughout, no sibilance or distortion. Just wondering who mastered the vinyl. "Mastering MIKE BOZZI / BERNIE GRUNDMAN" credited on inside sleeve. Mike for CD and Bernie for vinyls?But there's No "BG" sign on dead wax on my EU pressing.Does your US vinyl have "BG" on dead wax?

  • My copy has SS in the dead wax. Also, slightly diff matrix than either of the US releases listed so far...SIDE A: B0023464-01 A RE-1 IV 25748.1(3)... SSSIDE B: B0023464-01 B RE-1 II 25748.2(3)...SIDE C: B0023464-01 C RE-1 IV 25748.3(3)...SIDE D: B002346401-D-RE 25748.2(3)...SS

  • No BG in the deadwax for US. The inner sleeve credits say Mike Bozzi at Bernie Grundman Mastering, but doesn't name Bernie Grundman.

  • I noticed on the inside gatefold it has Hood Politics and Momma switched around in the track listing. This is for the 2XLP, my mistake.

  • Any one else getting some slight distortion on the left channel near the end of side 1, at the start of "These Walls"?Other than that, this release is a completely different listening experience compared to the digital version. Get a copy when you get a chance.

  • not distortion, but a consistent skipping throughout the entire song.

  • I am having the same issue. I thought the cable on my left headphone was loose.

  • I didn't notice the distortion there but I am hearing a weird distortion in the bass line of Hood Politics. Sibilance is also pretty present, however it's not a terrible pressing regardless, as surface noise is low.

  • Not for that track specifically, but I'm getting sibilance in the left channel for most songs. Not sure if it's just my setup or if anybody can confirm.

  • My copy arrived today. I have the following matrix info for this particular copy:------------------Side A:B0023464-01A-RE2 // 25244.1(3)Side B:B0023464-01B-RE2 // 25244.2(3)Side C:B0023464-01C-RE2 // 25244.3(3)Side D:B0023464-01D-RE2 // 25244.4(3)------------------Is this already a repress? I haven't been able to find pressing info anywhere. No idea where this was pressed and who did the cutting.

  • I have this one and there's a bit too much sibilance for my liking. But other than that, it's a pretty quiet pressing.

  • Also, although it's not explicitly stated anywhere, it seems pretty clearly to be 180 gram vinyl

  • Mine has the same matrix info - Received today from Amazon

  • It's the official release. It's been delayed several times, finally released today.

  • Really good pressing of what has already become a modern classic. Tracks like King Kunta sound full and warm. Makes it worth the wait for this! Like GKMC it comes with plain white inners and sadly no download code.

  • Very poor quality bootleg, not mint condition as advertised. Entire first side pops and skips, I have not even bothered listening to the rest. Waste of money, DO NOT BUY.

  • Damn wish I got this white/ pink pressing over the clear vinyl. Vinyl-digital or whoever is doing these bottlegs needs to vary it up and stop doing so many clear vinyl releases.

  • I am very disappointed by this boitleg. Everything about it is cheap, but somwhow it was super expensive. The lo-res cover is awful. The comic-sans type on the back is even worse. I want to return this and get my money back.

  • Just found this today.http://www.factmag.com/2015/08/03/kendrick-lamar-to-pimp-a-butterfly-vinyl-release/

  • vinyl is coming in october according to okayplayer: http://www.okayplayer.com/news/kendrick-lamar-to-pimp-a-butterfly-getting-vinyl-treatment.html

  • amazon.de has it delayed to October 23rd

  • Pre-Order Here:http://www.fatbeats.com/products/kendrick-lamar-to-pimp-a-butterfly-lp

  • official press announced for 10/2/15

  • http://www.hhv.de/shop/en/item/kendrick-lamar-to-pimp-a-butterfly-435008?p=T2k6akThere it is

  • Is this real?

  • Vinyl looks very nice and sound is great. Sleeve is cheap but ok, labels are pressed well, recommended.

  • The re-arrangement of the tracklist is an absolutely bizarre move. And precisely why I'm going to wait for the official release. The album's narrative and flow will be lost...

  • Would agree with the other comment completely. Sounds great, vinyl looks great, sleeve not so much (but acceptable). Overall very good unofficial release.

  • Lazy sleeve packaging. Sound quality is better than expected for a bootleg and the marble/pink swirl is awesome. Disc labels are well done. Overall 7.5/10.

  • Sleeve is cheap but the sound quality is very nice for a bootleg! I truly recommend this release until an official release...

  • My copy is of very good quality, I would highly recommend this seller

  • I am not sure about anything regarding this release. I do know I have a 2LP set that I have yet to play, but the vinyl is NOT clear or even remotely so. One disk was white marble and the other pink marble. I am hoping that it sounds ok, but just haven't had the chance to listen yet.I think the buzz around this will ultimately increase sales once an official vinyl set is released, but I hope they don't wait forever :)

  • Where that vinyl at?

  • this is real hip hop

  • Is this worth buying considering the ruined tracklist and (apparently) cut off skits, not to mention pretty cheap packaging? $26 seems like a lot for something that's put together so amateurishly outside of the cool vinyl color. Like, if the audio quality is fantastic I could see getting it but I have reservations based on the horribleness of the Section.80 clear bootleg distributed by vinyl-digital.

  • It took them two years to press GKMC. Also, I heard somewhere that TDE and Interscope had "indefinitely postponed" the vinyl release, so it's not even the problem that people thought it was (RSD delays).

  • I'd just wait for an official vinyl, honestly. Seeing as how GKMC was eventually pressed by TDE/Interscope I'd be really surprised if this didn't get a vinyl release at some point, especially since the old school nature of this record seems to make it destined for a vinyl release. Might be awhile, maybe not even til next year, but I'd take waiting for an official over buying a bootleg with an incorrect tracklist, personally.

  • For a bootleg, this release is very surprising, at least in a few ways. First, we'll get the obvious fact out of the way that the sleeve is very, very cheap, and feels like you would expect a bootleg to feel. As for the vinyl itself, the clear(ish) tint of the discs looks nice, and actually really fits the style of the album. The labels were also a pleasant surprise, and look very nice. The sound quality is above average, but definitely doesn't sound as full, or rich, as a professional pressing would sound. It's a little quieter, and lacks the "size" of the original tracks. The bass isn't as deep or round, the sounds don't linger as long, etc. It definitely doesn't sound BAD, but it's definitely sourced secondhand, nowhere near a master. And, as previously said, the tracklist has been altered, and there's no real excuse for this, as far as I can tell. They loaded down each side of each disc, and couldn't say that they couldn't have found space. It was a very off choice.Though, with all of this said, I don't regret the purchase. It sounds good, it looks good, and it will more than hold me over until an official release. If you come across one, it's definitely a sweet little press, and a nice novelty/rarity to have for fans while we wait for an official press. If you're not willing to sacrifice some quality, and want to put your money toward a higher quality package, press, etc. then there's nothing wrong with that, either. 7.5/10 Above average bootleg, but it's still a bootleg. Could even push for an 8/10 just for how cool it is, personally.

  • No one knows when an official release is coming, it could be two years like it took for gkmc. There's a reddit thread dedicated to this here: http://www.reddit.com/r/KendrickLamar/comments/32e8ju/some_help_with_to_pimp_a_butterflys_vinyl_release/

  • "Good" considering what? You're literally getting the MP3 of the album on a plastic disc, but made worse so the record can compensate for an already loud, mastered record.There's no telling if every pressing is the same either, I'm sure there are plenty of copies out there that are off center and filled with surface noise. Don't buy bootlegs like this, especially if an official release is coming out.

  • I was just surprised no one had posted one yet, so any review is better than none. I have opinions! haha

  • Thanks for your review, man. I was wondering about the sound quality since the Section 80 bootleg just sounded like crap. Surface noise over the entire album.

  • The clear 2xLP version that has been release is a bootleg. This has been confirmed by several sources. There is currently NO official vinyl release for this album.

  • Vinyl release does exist and it's a "limited edition" 2x LP on Clear and it's sitting on my shelf at the moment. Happy RSD.

  • It's not a legitimate release it's a bootleg aka "unofficial" release. Many RSD stores carried it along with their RSD stock which was kind of shady considering it's not an officially sanctioned release.

  • Gagging for a vinyl release please!

  • I really want this on vinyl... please

  • This isn't an official release, just to make sure people know. TDE said on twitter that there will be a vinyl release of this, if you want to wait for an official version that will undoubtedly have better packaging, I suggest waiting for that.Also wondering why the HELL they changed the tracklisting around; the track order of the official release is intentional, it's supposed to flow a certain way and this screws it up so badly, you know they didn't edit i or You Ain't Gotta Lie, they're still gonna flow into each other, so i's just gonna start with a bunch of random crowd noise. It's not even like they did it for side lengths, it doesn't change anything.

  • What do you mean? For their other bootlegs they never moved songs around, hell the Section.80 bootleg has the same tracklist.

  • They changed it for legal reasons.

  • They would fit believe me. There's absolutely no reason to change it, the longest side on here is 22-23 minutes and it would be the same for the actual tracklisting.

  • They probably didn't fit on the LP sides in the order they are on the cd.Curious to see the official tracklisting.

  • anyone know if that upcoming release is bootleg or official? Seems like it could be bootleg since it's showing up on german sites (here too: http://www.vinyl-digital.com/Hip-Hop-Rap/To-Pimp-A-Butterfly.html?listtype=search&searchparam=kendrick%20lamar)

  • Why's the tracklisting different? The album flows perfectly, moving things around really messes that up.

  • screams bootleg, wasn't the yeezus one also released by these guys? i'm waiting for the original... hopefully soon.

  • It's confusing. It seems like the vinyl you can preorder on hhv (http://www.hhv.de/shop/de/artikel/kendrick-lamar-to-pimp-a-butterfly-clear-vinyl-edition-417230?bc=true) is an UK bootleg (clear vinyl) while the version on vinyl digital (http://www.vinyl-digital.com/Hip-Hop-Rap/To-Pimp-A-Butterfly.html?listtype=search&searchparam=to%20pimp%20a%20butterfly) is on the label TDE Groove.

  • Looks like a bootleg to me. If it's as shitty sounding as the Section 80 clear vinyl bootleg, I won't buy it!

  • I refuse to get this album until it's on vinyl... So hopefully the official date comes SOON!!
