Kendrick Lamar’s ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ Gets the Gucci Treatment with Limited-Edition Vinyl

It’s been eight years since Kendrick Lamar‘s album “To Pimp a Butterfly” first graced our ears with unforgettable tracks like “Alright” and “The Blacker the Berry.” Now, this critically acclaimed album has received a luxurious makeover that elevates it to new heights of artistic excellence.

Interscope has unveiled a limited edition vinyl of “To Pimp a Butterfly” that is much more than just a typical album release. This vinyl is a true masterpiece, wrapped in Gucci luxury from top to bottom.


The vinyl, limited to only 100 units, comes in custom patterned packaging designed by the Italian luxury house, complete with a gilded Gucci seal of approval. The vinyl’s cover is a stunning work of art created by contemporary artist Lauren Halsey, presented in a gallery-quality giclée print and secured atop a custom-dyed linen jacket.

Halsey’s cover art perfectly captures the essence of Lamar’s lyrics and the album’s exploration of personal experiences as a Black man and themes related to the Black community. The result is a vinyl that is truly museum-worthy.

With this vinyl, Gucci once again surprises us with a unique collaboration that adds to their already impressive roster. But as expected, such artful and luxurious packaging does not come cheap – the vinyl is priced at $2,500 on Interscope’s website. However, each purchase also includes a large-scale collectible catalog titled “Artists Inspired by Music: Interscope Reimagined,” making it a true collector’s item.
