Top Dawg's Black Hippy consists of Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, ScHoolboy Q and Jay Rock. With the announcement of Lamar's "To Pimp A Butterfly" album, Ab-Soul took to Instagram to consign and build more hype for the project.

Soul posted this photo of Lamar's "To Pimp A Butterfly" album pre-order on iTunes with a slew of hashtags. One of the stand-out hashtags #DONTWUWWY should bring fans back to Lamar's Overly Dedicated mixtape, more specifically the song "Michael Jordan," where he ad-libbed the words.

Also among the hashtags was the famous #HiiiPOWER phrase and Soul even poked fun with the hashtag #THISISWHYIAINTGOTNOGAVEL. Soul was referring to his song "Terrorist Threats," off his Control System album.

Earlier this week Lamar released the album art and title for the project furthering the hype for his third album and follow up to the classic g.o.o.d. kid, m.A.A.d city .

Soul and Lamar have the oldest friendship in terms of the Black Hippy crew and have been avid supporters of one another.

Last year Soul released his album These Days after months of uncertain due dates and delays. The album was a hit with his fans and now Lamar is taking over where Soul left off.

"To Pimp A Butterfly" is scheduled to be released on March 23 and fans can pre-order the album right now on iTunes. The album appears as if it will be very controversial, from the album artwork to the single, "The Blacker The Berry," addressing race in America.

Meanwhile, fans are still waiting to hear more on the release of Soul's Long Term 3 (LT3) mixtape that was promised by the artist.
