(NOTE LANGUAGE) Early versions of Kendrick Lamar songs were leaked on social media Thursday. “Pure,” “Make Me Happy” and “Computer Love” were released on Spotify via a playlist by user Marozy.
The songs were believed to be recorded during the album-making process for Kendrick’s latest album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers. As HipHopDx notes, “Make Me Happy” has a few lyrics similar to those in “Purple Hearts,” while “Pure” features lyrics and ad-libs from Kendrick that were heard on the leaked version of Baby Keem‘s “Vent” and later on Keem’s “Cocoa.”
DJ Dahl, who co-produced Mr. Morale cuts “Die Hard,” “Father Time,” “Rich Spirit” and “Count Me Out,” clarifies the leaked songs, which are no longer available to stream, were recorded a few years ago.
“Why are y’all leaking sh** from 4 years ago???” he wrote on his Instagram Story. “We didn’t even bounce these records out. These KDot records are strictly demos. Y’all really dying of thirst out here lol.”
Marozy previously leaked Kanye West songs “City in the Sky” and “Mr. Miyagi.”
