Rumors that a new Kendrick album was on the way began circulating on Monday after rapper Isaiah Rashad claimed to have heard “damn near” a whole new Lamar record while on sitting in on a studio session with Top Dawg Entertainment CEO, Anthony Tiffith.

However, TDE’s co-founder has effectively killed the hype, penning an all-caps note on Instagram that read: “Att: Kdot don’t have a new album coming no time soon.” Adding, “So keep playing DAMN until the kid is inspired again.”

However, Tiffith previously revealed that he has at least two more albums from the TDE group coming later this year, even noting he’s “trying for 4.” While unclear, signs to point to ScHoolboy Q whose followup to the 2016 Black Face LP is said to be almost completed. Fan theories suggest Rashad, SZA and recently signed, Zacari are also in the running.
