UPDATE: The tracklist of Kendrick Lamar’s second major-label album has been revealed.

Kendrick Lamar’s Untitled album is slated for a March 23 release, according to iTunes.

The project is slated to feature 16 songs, including the Compton, California rapper’s “The Blacker The Berry” single, which was released last month. 

In November, K-Dot said that his forthcoming album could be “even more raw” sonically than good kid, m.A.A.d city

“If anything, aside from good kid, it’ll probably feel even more raw,” Kendrick Lamar said at the time. “Because it’s a little more dirty with the live, dirty drums on it. It’s not something that’s contemporary with the MPC and you pressing different patterns and things like that, but we’ll see how it come out…Everything’s really in-house. Of course Dre, but I really stick with four producers that I’ve been working with since day one. I don’t really go outside the box of that soundwave.”

In September, the TDE rapper released his “i” single.

UPDATE: Kendrick Lamar posted what appears to be the album cover and title of his forthcoming album today (March 10).

“Don’t all dogs go to heaven? Don’t Gangsta’s boogie? Do owl shit stank? Lions, Tigers & Bears. But TO PIMP A BUTTERFLY. Its the American dream nigga….” – lil Homie.,” the TDE rapper wrote on Instagram.

To Pimp A Butterfly appears to be the album title, though iTunes still labels the album titled as Untitled.
