Kendrick Lamar Urges His Fans to Listen to XXXTentacion’s ’17’ Album
XXX dropped his debut album, 17, a couple days ago and Ku Fu Kenny is impressed enough to let his Twitter followers know to check out the LP from the eclectic newcomer. Posting a link to the project on his Twitter page, Lamar added, "Listen to this album if you feel anything. raw thoughts." He later implied that he had already listened to the project five times.
That's major props from an unaffiliated artist. We had issues in the past where labelmates not sharing links have caused problems. Maybe there's a chance we see a collab between Lamar and XXXTentacion in the near future. Earlier this month, XXX performed at a date on Kendrick's DAMN. Tour.
The South Florida rapper recently made the headlines after fans thought he pretended to take his own life on social media. The controversial footage is supposedly for a new video. The "Look at Me" MC responded to the uproar. “If you thought I would ‘pretend’ to kill myself for a publicity stunt you’re fucking stupid,” the rapper captioned the video.
“Damn nigga, I’m not gonna lie I’m pissed off as fuck,” he wrote in the since-deleted post. “I couldn’t even surprise you guys cause I was scared someone would hurt themselves, and my feelings hurt as fuck, do you all really think I could kill myself and show that to the kids? You don’t think I have more dignity than that? Shit makes me not even want to make music anymore, not allowed to be an artist it seems,” he added.
