(AllHipHop News) As 2017 raps up, Kendrick Lamar is offering his fans a special collectors edition of the DAMN album. The new version features the original tracklist in reverse order.
"I think like a week after the album came out, they realized you can listen to the album backward. It plays as a full story and even a better rhythm," Lamar told MTV in August. "It’s one of my favorite rhythms and tempos within the album. It’s something that we definitely premeditate while we be in the studio.”
He added, "The initial vibe listening from the top all the way to the bottom is just this aggression and this attitude. You know with ‘DNA,’ and exposing who I really am. You listen from the back-end, and it’s almost the duality and the contrast of the intricate Kendrick Lamar. Both of these pieces are who I am.”
