Kendrick Lamar’s latest album, DAMN, has been one of the most dissected & listened to albums of this past year or even decade for that matter. Since its inception, there have been plenty of fan theories about the project, including one that K. Dot had plans to release a second album, & another that the album could be listened to entirely backwards, but it turns out the latter is indeed true now. In a new interview with MTV, K. Dot confirmed that he purposely made the album to be consumed backwards.

While some fans believe playing the album backwards changes the story, K. Dot doesn’t buy that, but instead said the backwards play gives it a new feel.
