A week later, the album's lead single, "HUMBLE.", was released ahead of schedule due to the cover art being leaked online. On the announced date of April 7, 2017, the new album was not released but merely made available for pre-order, to the dismay of fans. On April 14, 2017, Kendrick's fourth studio album, ''DAMN.'' was released to widespread critical acclaim, beating out Drake's ''More Life'' for best selling hip-hop album of the year with 600,000 units sold. On April 17th, 2018, ''DAMN.'' also became the first hip-hop/rap album to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music.

Kendrick began hinting towards a fourth album on March 22, 2017, where he deleted all of his pictures on Instagram and uploaded a since-deleted picture with nothing but the word "IV". The following day, ''The Heart Part IV'' was released as a promotional single, signaling an upcoming return of Kendrick, supposedly taking shots at Music/BigSean and Drake, and hinting the date of his fourth album with the line "Y'all got April the 7th to get your shit together."

** "Ain't nobody prayin' for me" is a recurring phrase on ''DAMN.'', appearing in some form on "ELEMENT.", "FEEL.", the album version of "HUMBLE.", and "FEAR." It ends up getting its own song in ''Film/{{Black Panther|2018}}: The Album'', in the form of ''Pray For Me'', which doubles as a [[TragicVillain tragic]] VillainSong.

** ''good kid, m.A.A.d city'' is a somewhat fictionalized account of Kendrick's teenage years in Compton. After a night of robbery and drugs with friends, K.Dot (young Kendrick) heads to Sherane's house for sex. Upon arrival, two gangbangers outside her house beat K.Dot up as his gang affiliation (or lack thereof) is not welcome. K.Dot friends get word of what happen and decide to involve these two gang members in a drive-by shooting. This goes awry as [[spoiler:K.Dot's friend Dave is shot and killed in the process. K.Dot reassess his life]], allowing him to become the Kendrick Lamar we know today.

** ''DAMN.'' can also be a deconstruction of the modern rap and pop scene with songs like ''GOD.'' and ''DNA.'' being deconstructions of the pop-rap and trap genres respectively.

** ''DAMN.'' gives us the 7-minute-long ''FEAR.'', a song about Kendrick's fears during different stages of his life. Just like ''Mortal Man'' and ''Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst'', it ends in a spoken word portion by Kendrick's cousin Carl.

* VillainSong: ''Pray For Me'' is a [[TragicVillain tragic]] one, as Kendrick and Music/TheWeeknd sing from the perspective of [[Film/BlackPanther Erik Killmonger]], who laments the fact that all he knows in life is violence, the fact that he's made himself completely alone, and that no one will mourn him when he dies.
