- Doing It for the Art: The intention of To Pimp A Butterfly.
- Uncredited Role: He's worked as an uncredited ghostwriter for Dr. Dre.
- What Could Have Been: Tech N9ne's Strange Music label had the opportunity to sign him along with ScHoolboy Q, but sent them both to Interscope in exchange for cash compensation.
- Working Title:
- To Pimp A Butterfly's title was supposed to be To Pimp A Caterpillar, with the adjustment of "To" to the number 2, making it "2 Pimp A Caterpillar". And if you take in Fun with Acronyms, it spells out "2PAC", or Tupac Shakur.
- DAMN. was originally titled What Happens on Earth Stays on Earth, a recurring phrase throughout the album, but was changed because it "didn't read right", according to Kendrick.
