The more years logged in the rap game, the more unreleased material an artist accrues. Interviews, performances, and advance album previews all give way to song details and/or snippets leaking—songs that, ultimately, never officially see the light of day. These tracks become almost mythic in a way, as everything from sample clearances to a plain ol' change in artistic vision leaves them collecting dust in a metaphorical vault. With several years as a mainstream artist whose star is constantly ascending, Kendrick Lamar is starting to build up his own stockpile of songs his fanbase is dying to hear in CDQ. We'd like him to stop playing with our emotions and show some goodwill before the pile gets larger. Here are five—although there are surely more—rumored or else previewed tracks that K-dot has yet to actually release. Listen up, Dot: the streets demand it.
