Kendrick Lamar shared the artwork for his forthcoming album Damn this week and Twitter predictably turned it into a meme (we even got in on it). Following the incredible artwork that covered To Pimp A Butterfly, fans were a little underwhelmed when they saw what K.Dot was working with on his fourth album.

But Vlad Sepetov, who assisted in putting together the design, defended it on Twitter calling it "loud and abrasive" and thanked TDE for seeing "the value in making something that doesn’t fit the mold."

Whether you like the cover or not, ultimately the album is gonna be judged on its content, and given that it's out tomorrow (or today, depending on your source), it won't be long until we'll potentially have to eat our own words.

Fancy heading to the dirty south with Eden Rose (NSFW)? Well how about going to know our 5 favourite new artists?
