Interscope Records has released a limited edition vinyl LP of Kendrick Lamar’s 2015 project, To Pimp a Butterfly, in collaboration with Gucci, of which only 100 copies are available. The album has been signed by artist Lauren Halsey, with custom packaging designed by Gucci, featuring an 11.5″ x 11.5″ gallery-quality giclée by Halsey, affixed to a tan custom-dyed linen vinyl jacket.
The limited edition vinyl sells for $2,500. Each comes with a large-format Artists Inspired by Music: Interscope Reimagined catalog. The vinyl begins shipping on Thursday, May 11.
The album is part of Interscope’s limited-edition vinyl series, Interscope Reimagined, together with curated social marketplace NTWRK, to celebrate the label’s 30th anniversary. Interscope and NTWRK will donate all profits from Interscope Reimagined to the Iovine and Young Foundation in South Los Angeles.
The Interscope Reimagined lineup includes albums and songs from Interscope artists like 2Pac, 6lack, Dr. Dre, Eminem, N.E.R.D., and more, with new artwork from visual artists like Amaoko Boafo, KAWS, and Kehinde Wiley.
Kendrick Lamar’s Big Steppers Tour, which has grossed over $100 million, has surpassed Drake’s previous tour record as the highest-grossing tour by a rapper as a headlining act. The tour has earned $110.9 million from 929,000 tickets across 73 shows, beginning in July 2022 following the release of Kendrick’s fifth album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, and ending that September.
More recently, Kendrick Lamar was named this year’s Met Gala “Ambassadors and Friends of the House,” along with iconic model Naomi Campbell, actor Margaret Qualley, and K-pop star Jennie Kim. This year’s event honored the late designer and former creative director for Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld.
Kendrick Lamar is scheduled to perform at several music festivals this year, including Chicago’s Lollapalooza and San Francisco’s Outside Lands.
