On Monday, Lamar shared the news on Twitter by responding to a February tweet from a user that read, "Kendrick Lamar is officially retired."

The To Pimp a Butterfly artist quoted the tweet with a link to his Oklama website, a blank webpage with two folders, where one of them held a scan of a statement on pgLang letterhead.

"The following statement was released today by oklama, through his company, pgLang at 11:00 AM PT in Los Angeles, CA," the statement began.

"All factual information for this release will come directly from this source only," it concluded, seemingly alluding to the numerous false alarms about a next K Dot album.

The 34-year-old also shared the news on his Instagram page.

Needless to say, fans lost their minds following Lamar's exciting news.

"NO WAY KENDRICK LAMAR ANNOUNCED HIS ALBUM USING MY TWEET WTFFFF," the user whose tweet the rapper used to make the announcement wrote.

Another fan chimed in: "That's a Grammy worthy name right there," referring to the upcoming album's title.

The new project follows Lamar’s Pulitzer Prize winning album DAMN., which recently celebrated its five-year anniversary.
