Kendrick Lamar releasing special edition of his latest album

Kendrick Lamar is celebrating the success of his album DAMN. with the track listing reversed, but what could it all mean?

After some sleuthing, it was revealed that according to a listing on Microsoft's music marketplace a new version of DAMN. is coming out and it will feature new artwork, a photo of Kendrick wearing a t-shirt with the album title, and even odder, a reverse tracklist. Kendrick has said before the DAMN. album was best listened to in reverse starting with "Duckworth."

I dont think the story necessarily changes, I think the feel changes. The initial vibe listening from the top all the way to the bottom is...this aggression and this attitude. You know, DNA, and exposing who I really am. You listen from the back end, and its almost the duality and the contrast of the intricate Kendrick Lamar. Both of these pieces are who I am.

Kendrick said, Any of my fans know that my albums get real intricate and there are always details in there. For the most part, they usually have a good listening ear to figure out whats going on. DAMN. has been nominated for seven Grammys including Album of the Year and Best Rap Album. The reversed album is only available on Mircosoft's online store.
