The title To Pimp A Butterfly seems to be a play on the title of Harper Lee‘s novel To Kill A Mockingbird, the 1960 classic about racial tension and injustice in America.
Based on the cover art, that definitely seems to be the focus for Kendrick as well.
The rapper wrote:
“‘Don’t all dogs go to heaven? Don’t Gangsta’s boogie? Do owl shit stank? Lions, Tigers & Bears. But TO PIMP A BUTTERFLY. Its the American dream ni**a….’ – lil Homie.”
The cover may warn of explicit content on the record, but we’re guessing the photo itself may stir up some controversy!
