Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly photographed by Denis Rouvre. Lately i've been a big fan of Kendrick's latest album, "To Pimp a Butterfly". This album explores many culture related themes through the use of metaphors and language. The album also features notable Jazz artists, such as saxophonists Kamasi Washington and Terrace Martin, who bring a prominent jazz influence throughout the album.
