Kendrick tweeted a link to oklama.com on Friday along with a folder clip art with the words “nu thoughts” under the image.

On the site, K-Dot gave an update on his next album. “As I produce my final TDE album, I feel joy to have been a part of such a cultural imprint after 17 years,” he wrote. “The Struggles. The Success. And most importantly, the Brotherhood. May the Most High continue to use Top Dawg as a vessel for candid creators. As I continue to pursue my life’s calling.”


Kung Fun Kenny started the note sharing how he spends most of his days and revealed that he goes months without a phone. “I spend most of my days with fleeting thoughts. Writing. Listening. And collecting old Beach cruisers. The morning rides keep me on a hill of silence. I go months without a phone. Love, loss, and grief have disturbed by comfort zone, but the glimmers of God speak through my music and family. While the world around me evolves, I reflect on what matters the most. The life in which my words will land next.”

It’s unclear if his departure from TDE also marks a retirement, but Kendrick Lamar ended his message with a positive note. “There’s beauty in completion. And always faith in the unknown. Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts. I’ve prayed for you all. See you soon enough.”
