Kendrick Lamar's has apparently finished recording his follow up to 2017's DAMN.

Over the past couple of months, Kendrick Lamar has been confirmed for multiple festivals around the world.

Lamar's headline slots have resulted in speculation over the rapper having finished his follow up to 2017's DAMN, and it seems that someone may have just confirmed that he's finished recording his new LP.

XXL reports that former Billboard editorial director Bill Werde spoke about the possibility of Lamar finishing his new LP on Twitter. Werde wrote, "Did anyone not named Beyonce release better, more meaningful back-to-back albums last decade than Kendrick Lamar? Are you interested to know that I hear from several friends that recording on the new album may finally be done? And that he’s pulling in more rock sounds this time?"

In another tweet, he added, "A lot of huge albums expected in 2020. I’ll be surprised if there’s one I listen to more closely the first time than this one."

Werde wrapped up his Lamar tweets by writing, "Also, just to be clear, just because recording had hit a point where folks believe it may be finished — albums go back to the studio all the time after this point, and for a million different reasons."

Kendrick Lamar will play festivals such as NOS Alive, Bilbao BBK Live, Rock Werchter, and more this summer. Find out more.
