Kendrick Lamar‘s return is imminent. Earlier today, the rapper shared a post on his completely blank Instagram account. A photo of a pixelated desktop folder titled “nu thoughts” with instructions to visit a new Oklama website featured on his profile. In a brief post on the page, the elusive 34-year-old rapper provides a rare glimpse into his life. He also shared he’s producing his “final TDE album” the follow-up to his record-breaking Pulitzer and Grammy-winning platinum album, DAMN. See the full statement below and on the site:

I spend most of my days with fleeting thoughts. Writing. Listening. And collecting old Beach cruisers. The morning rides keep me on a hill of silence.

I go months without a phone.

Love, loss, and grief have disturbed my comfort zone, but the glimmers of God speak through my music and family.

While the world around me evolves, I reflect on what matters the most. The life in which my words will land next.

As I produce my final TDE album, I feel joy to have been a part of such a cultural imprint after 17 years. The Struggles. The Success. And most importantly, the Brotherhood. May the Most High continue to use Top Dawg as a vessel for candid creators. As I continue to pursue my life’s calling.

There’s beauty in completion. And always faith in the unknown.

Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts. I’ve prayed for you all.

See you soon enough.
