* OnceMoreWithClarity: Throughout ''To Pimp a Butterfly'', Kendrick progressively recites more and more of a poem, adding lines after the end of each song. The album concludes with TheReveal that [[spoiler:the whole poem is being recited to Music/TupacShakur]].



* RearrangeTheSong: The version of "untitled 03" that was performed on ''Series/TheColbertReport'' differs notably from the album version; the final verse is left out, and there's not as much buildup for certain parts of the song.



* AWildRapperAppears: He does this in Music/ImagineDragons' "Radioactive" (remix)
** Completely inverted in his song "Money Trees", where his friend Anna Wise sings to bridge, which makes it A Wild Singer Appears.
** On the single version of Music/TaylorSwift's "Bad Blood", which few were expecting.

** The first and final line of ''DAMN.'' is "So, I was taking a walk the other day." We hear it first in the opening track "BLOOD." and then again in "DUCKWORTH.", after the song ends with several sounds from previous songs on the album being played in reverse as if the whole album is being reversed back to the very start.
