K-Dot has 4.1 million followers on Instagram and only one post.
The dark, mysterious image was published Thursday morning with no color and no caption, but it's got the internet buzzing (and not just Black Twitter). Hopeful fans are surfing a massive wave of speculation that the text on the post, which simply reads "IV" (the number four Roman numeral) promises the release of Lamar's fourth studio album is just around the corner. We can only hope.
Some things change and some things don't—for example race relations, terror attacks and healthcare are still conversations that dominate the American political landscape—but one thing is for sure, Kendrick Lamar's next album is one of the music world's most anticipated drops in recent memory and the rapper is making sure it stays shrouded in mystery.
