Lamar recently referred to "a chamber of material" that he did not use on To Pimp a Butterfly, reports The Guardian.

“I got a chamber of material from the album that I was in love [with], where sample clearances or something as simple as a deadline kept it off the album,” he said.

“But I think probably close to 10 songs that I’m in love with that I’ll still play and still perform that didn’t make the cut.”

Kendrick Lamar headlines the opening night of the Longitude Festival on Friday 16 July.
