Mistake or another planned surprise? In any case, Kendrick Lamar’s highly-anticipated sophomore album To Pimp A Butterfly is now available for purchase on iTunes. One day after the 20th anniversary of 2Pac’s Me Against the World LP (which Kendrick appears to be honoring with this release day), fans can buy the follow-up to 2012’s good kid, m.A.A.d city in clean version only for now, with guest appearances from Snoop Dogg, George Clinton, Ronald Isley, Rapsody, Thundercat, James Fauntleroy, Bilal, and Anna Wise.

For those who want to wait for an explicit version on the album’s release date of March 23, you can hold off and just stream snippets on iTunes. Click below.

UPDATE: TDE confirms with FADER that this release was planned.

UPDATE #2: The explicit version is out now on iTunes, and Spotify provides a full explicit stream of Kendrick’s album. Check out both below.
