Rapper Cardo Says He Contributed a Track to New Kendrick Lamar Album
Kendrick Lamar scored a critical and commercial hit with Good Kid, m.A.A.d City, and many have wondered what he has planned for a follow up.
Supposedly, recording began earlier in 2014 and Lamar’s third album is destined for a September 2014 release, but the rapper himself has spoke very little about its progress.
Rather, his collaborators are coming forward, with the latest being Fort Worth rapper Cardo. In a recent interview with XXL, Cardo revealed he and Lamar recorded a track together, and that material seems destined for Lamar’s third album.
He said: “I’ve completed one cut with Kendrick. It landing on the album is something that we are hopeful for right now.”
This, of course, won’t be the only instance mainstream hip-hop audiences will hear Cardo. His interview reveals collaborations with Jeezy, Ty Dolla $ign, and Meek Mill.
Lamar’s sophomore album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 242,000 copies its first week. The amount earned the rapper the distinction of the highest first-week sales for a male hip-hop artist in 2012. Critics praised Good Kid, m.A.A.d City, while the release placed Lamar as one of the rappers to watch out for.
Throughout 2012 and 2013, the release resulted in singles “The Recipe,” “Swimming Pool (Drank),” “Backseat Freestyle,” “Poetic Justice,” and “B—ch, Don’t Kill My Vibe.”
