Kendrick Lamar's 'DAMN' Is Here

Kendrick Lamar's highly-anticipated new album "DAMN,"is here and the internet is celebrating.

Kendrick Lamar's DAMN has arrived.


The prolific rapper's latest album dropped this morning. The 14-track record boasts features from Rihanna—who can be heard halfway through, on the standout "LOYALTY."—U2, and more. For the most part, though, Kendrick is a commanding one-man show, tackling themes of self-identity, race, fear and more, while flexing his indomitable flow.

DAMN already feels monumental, and it's pretty much all anyone is talking about this morning.

DAMN, can today get any better? Thank you, Kendrick!
