Kendrick Lamar‘s sprawling (hardly surprise) manifesto To Pimp A Butterfly was certainly every bit of the groundbreaking piece we had all expected, but it was far from a solo venture. Even with the Okayplayer All-Stars assembled (Bilal, Thundercat, Terrace Martin, Robert Glasper, Flying Lotus,) there was a laundry list of helping hands, feet and mouths. The good folks at Revive have rounded up some of the lesser-known name from the liner notes to get y’all acquainted with the full roster of K Dot disciples, including Lalah Hathaway, Ronald Bruner Jr., Robert “Sput” Searight, Keith Askey, Ambrose Akinmusire and so many more. Hit the link below to get a proper introduction to the musicians that helped bring Kendrick Lamar’s historic To Pimp A Butterfly LP to life and grab a copy of the album via iTunes today. Lots more on the way, folks, we’re not nearly done breaking this behemoth down.
