In August, he announced that this would be his last album for TDE.
“When I produced my last TDE album, I am delighted to be part of such a cultural stigma 17 years later,” he wrote. “Struggles. Success. And most importantly, the Brotherhood. May the Supreme continue to use Top Dawg as a ship for sincere creators. As I continue to call for my life. There’s beauty in completion. And always faith in the unknown.”
Kendrick Lamar ‘s ‘ALRIGHT’ Almost Didn’t Make ‘TO PIMP A BUTTERFLY’
Kendrick Lamar ‘s “OK” seems to be considered one of the greatest records in his discography. But Pharrell‘s anthem almost didn’t make To Pimp a Butterfly.
Speaking to Spotify’s “The Big Hit Show” podcast, producer Sounwave explains how the iconic song was Kendrick Lamar ‘s last-minute addition to his third studio album. In one of his meetings, Pharrell played Kendrick beats, while a Sony Music executive took Sounwave aside and made an instrumental that Pharrell actually made for another artist.
“I just remember my guy, Sam Taylor said, ‘Hey come check this one out.’ He takes me to another room,” recalled Sounwave. “And he plays me the skeleton of ‘Alright.’”
“And I remember my jaw dropping. It was literally like the ‘808s and the keys, and Pharrell had the melody of “We’re going to be fine.” And I said, “Brother, what is this?”” Oh, my God, I’m freaking out. And I ran, and I said, “Dot, you should come and listen to this.”
