Kendrick Lamar's producer Soundwave has confirmed that more unreleased material from the "Alright" rapper is going to be arriving. He told Complex: "We have a lot of records, especially from this album. There are still records people haven’t heard, mainly because we can’t get sample clearances. Those songs were ones that we really loved and were hurt that we couldn’t put them on the album. They also have important messages in them, so Kendrick wanted to share those messages with the world. Why not share these records?"
