*Last week, LeBron James sent a tweet to Top Dawg Entertainment’s CEO Dangeroo Kipawaa and his artist Kendrick Lamar after the rapper’s Grammy performance to find out when recent untitled tracks he performed on the show and elsewhere were going to drop.

On Thursday night, eight tracks under the title “Untitled Unmastered” arrived from K.Dot on iTunes, Apple Music, Tidal, Spotify and GooglePlay.
Today, LeBron showed his appreciation via an Instagrammed video of himself grooving to one of the tracks.

None of the songs has a title, just what appears to be dates, ranging from 2013 to 2016.
Per the AP:
Top Dawg Entertainment, the independent hip-hop label Lamar is signed to, said the collection “features studio versions of the untitled songs” that Lamar performed on “The Colbert Report,” ”The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” and last month’s Grammy Awards.
Many of the songs have a spacy, groovy feel and sound highly produced, including the standout funky “untitled 08 09.06.2014.” But “untitled 07 2014-2016” is a meandering, eight-minute song that ends with artists collaborating in a studio, complete with jokes and laughing.
The collection, which totals 34 minutes of music, was publicized around midnight from Lamar’s Twitter account.
