Kendrick Lamar has been a dominant force in 2017 with his album DAMN. Universally regarded as one of the best albums of the year, it has led to such discussions like whether or not Kendrick is the best rapper alive. However there was a twist. According to K.Dot, you can listen to the album backwards. Tapping into this, he has actually released the album with the tracklist backwards as part of a Collectors Edition.
"I think like a week after the album came out, [fans] realized you can play the album backwards," he told MTV News. "It plays as a full story and even a better rhythm. It’s one of my favorite rhythms and tempos within the album. It’s something that we definitely premeditate while we’re in the studio."
The album doesn’t have many changes, because well that would be foolish. But the opening is acknowledges the reversal, with the line “Just remember, what happens on Earth stays on Earth / We gon' put it in reverse.”
There is also some new artwork. Stream the full album below or pick up your own copy here.
