Kendrick Lamar’s ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ Is Finally Getting The Vinyl Treatment

The world has had plenty of time to absorb the radiant, aggressive, and quite frankly, brilliant insta-classic that is Kendrick Lamar‘s To Pimp A Butterfly. But soon, you’ll finally have the chance to hear the album as you never have; from between the dust and grooves, of course. This October, a much-anticipated, wholly necessary vinyl treatment of the album will be released as a double LP, quieting you friendly neighborhood audiophile with the fullness and warmth that only acetate can offer. And truth be told, this may be the only logical step forward for an album that’s as musically rich as anything the year’s had to offer, continuing our celebration of the record that keeps on giving, even six months after its initial (surprise) release. Not like we don’t have anything to hold us over (with all of the visual reinforcement we’ve been gifted over the months since) but the vinyl will be available for you to purchase on October 2nd, and at just $26.99, an inarguable bargain. Hit the link below to preorder you copy Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly today via Fat Beats, just be sure to hold tight for the imminent onslaught of continued visuals and K Dot features that are to follow in the months ahead, particularly on Dr. Dre‘s freshly-confirmed Compton: A Soundtrack LP.
