Kendrick Lamar Releases 'To Pimp A Butterfly' A Week Early

Kendrick Lamar wasn't due to drop his sophomore LP, "To Pimp a Butterfly," until March 23, but a "clean" version of album appeared on iTunes late Sunday night. Despite rumors that TDE and Interscope were behind the early stream, TDE CEO Anthony Tiffith tweeted his frustration:
