On August 20, Kendrick Lamar revealed he is working on his final TDE album (Top Dawg Entertainment). Amid this, Twitter came up with some wild theories about what ‘Oklama’ could mean.
The speculation about Kendrick leaving TDE had been going on for a long time. However, it was only recently that he confirmed this news. While fans are uncertain what the rapper has in store for them, Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, CEO and founder of Top Dawg Entertainment, is certain there is a lot to look forward to.
Kendrick Lamar teases final TDE album
On August 20, Kendrick confirmed his final TDE album and directed fans to a website titled ‘Oklama.’ When you reach the site, you will notice a folder with the title “nu thoughts.’
After clicking on it, fans come across a letter that talks about the rapper’s final album. At the same time, the note is signed off with ‘Oklama’
The letter reads:
I spend most of my days with fleeting thoughts. Writing. Listening. And collecting old Beach cruisers. The morning rides keep me on a hill of silence.
I go months without a phone.
Love, loss, and grief have disturbed my comfort zone, but the glimmers of God speak through my music and family.
While the world around me evolves, I reflect on what matters the most. The life in which my words will land next.
As I produce my final TDE album, I feel joy to have been a part of such a cultural imprint after 17 years. The Struggles. The Success. And most importantly, the Brotherhood. May the Most High continue to use Top Dawg as a vessel for candid creators. As I continue to pursue my life’s calling.
There’s beauty in completion. And always faith in the unknown.
Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts. I’ve prayed for you all.
See you soon enough.
Twitter theories about what is Oklama explored
Fans have come up with some wild theories about what Oklama is. Even though the rapper has not given out big clues about it, Twitter users have been trying to decode the message.
Some users think Oklama might be a character from the rapper’s upcoming album. One user wrote: “I think oklama is a new character/alter ego just like kungfu Kenny was, could be wrong tho.”
Another echoed similar thoughts and wrote: “I’m guessing Oklama is a character.” Meanwhile, there are others who think it could be the name of his upcoming album.
One user wrote: “Oklama” is probably gonna be the album name, and knowing Kendrick Lamar he’s probably gonna start investing in pgLang (his own label) since he’s leaving TDE after this album. I’m guessing he just wants full control of his own work, and an artist as big as Kendrick deserves that.”
While Twitter users have their own theories, we will have to have to wait for the rapper’s confirmation on the same.
