Kendrick Lamar's new album is in the works, according to a statement by producer, MC, musician and vocalist Terrace Martin. 

Responding to a fan's comment on his Instagram Story, which predicted "the West Coast is about to return to the Mecca of Hip Hop," Martin replied: "We always been the Mecca, bro. We take a little break sometimes. We gotta take breaks to let the other people have a little bit. We back, though.”

Martin then revealed his excitement over Lamar's impending album, which he reportedly worked on. It will be the follow up to 2022's acclaimed LP 'Mr Morale and the Big Steppers', which he also played a role in. He then listed a number of other rappers with forthcoming records on the way, including YG, Mustard and another of Martin's collaborators, Roddy Ricch. All of these artists grew up in Compton, a city within Los Angeles that has produced numerous luminaries, such as Dr Dre and N.W.A., Coolio, and The Game.

“Let me tell y’all the records I’m excited for. I’m excited for YG’s album, I’m excited for Mustard’s album," said Martin. "I’m excited for a lot of people, but there’s two albums, I’m going crazy, I can’t wait ’til they drop — Roddy Ricch album and whenever Kendrick drops his album, I’m excited for those two. Those two Compton artists is like, I’m excited. So much shit bubbling, you know?”
