There’s one person already blasting Kendrick Lamar‘s just-released album, To Pimp a Butterfly. That person? Taylor Swift.
“KENDRICK PUT HIS ALBUM OUT EARLY,” she wrote on Mar. 16. “NO ONE TOUCH ME.”

The album dropped ahead of its scheduled March 23 release date on Mar. 16. It is the follow-up to 2012’s good kid, m.A.A.d city.
However not long after Taylor’s tweet, the album was removed from iTunes.

This is hardly the first time Swift has proclaimed her fandom for the rapper. In an interview with Rolling Stone last year, she shared that Lamar’s music helps her go from feeling “victimized” to “awesome.” She further noted that her “go-to” Kendrick track is “Backseat Freestyle” from his 2012 album.
“I appreciate Taylor Swift for supporting not only my music but just the hip-hop culture,” Lamar said last Sept. about having her support. “There’s really no gap. It’s music and it feels good.”
