Last night, Kendrick Lamar dropped his surprise untitled unmastered., much to the delight of rap fans everywhere, many of whom are still digesting the 7-time GRAMMY winner’s sophomore opus, To Pimp a Butterfly, which was released just under a year ago. The album consisted of several demos from Kendrick’s last album, none of which actually made it off the To Pimp A Butterfly cutting room floor. However, during sporadic national television appearances–The Late Night Show, the GRAMMYs–Lamar would perform the cuts without releasing the mp3 form of them to the internet.
Apparently, one of those cuts, “untitled 7,” was produced by Swizz Beatz‘s son, Egypt Daoud, who–if you remember–was in the boxes with Swizz Beatz, Jay Z, Beyonce and Usher during Super Bowl 50 just talking business. Apparently, something came of those suite conversations, and as proof, Swizz uploaded the footage to his Instagram.
