There’s been a mixed reaction to guests on Kendrick Lamar’s new album

We're sure he's doing it ironically

We’re sure he’s doing it ironically.

U2 will appear on the new album by Kendrick Lamar, ‘DAMN.’, which is released on Friday.

The presence of the crowd-pleasing yet incredibly safe Irish rockers – as well as Rihanna – has come as a bit of a shock to those who like to get bent out of shape by these things, although the presence of James Blake, Steve Lacy of The Internet, DJ Dahi, BadBadNotGood, 9th Wonder and The Alchemist should maintain Lamar’s place high on the credibility scale.

This is the very definition of a mixed reaction.
