Kendrick prefaced the listening saying that he wasn’t going to play the album in its entirety but he was going to just go with the vibe of the night. Artists like Ab-Soul, Pusha T, Bun B, Elle Varner, Nitty Scott and more were all invited guests of the TDE family to give it one of those old school album listening feels. The event was more of a party than a listening session, but the seven songs that were played were enough to wet the appetite of those anticipating K.Dot’s debut.

Hit the jump to get a preview of good kid, m.A.A.d. city,  which hits stores October 22nd.
