Kendrick Lamar says he has unreleased music he's only using for TV performances

Kendrick Lamar is becoming known for performing unreleased songs on late night television, debuting records never heard on The Tonight Show and the finale of The Colbert Report. In conversations with Andreas Hale for Grammy.com and Meka from 2DopeBoyz the rapper said, " got a chamber of material from the album that I was in love where sample clearances or something as simple as a deadline kept it off the album... think probably close to ten songs that I’m in love with that I’ll still play and still perform."

He invited them, as his guests, to take a field trip to the event and spent time with the group listening to and answering questions, as well as sharing some insight into the life experiences he uses as source material to inspire his music. Although, there doesn't seem to be talks of a new project, King Kendrick fans still have new material to look forward to this year.
