He's never one to do things quietly - and his latest gig was no exception. After two years, Kendrick marked his return to the stage as he headlined this year's Day N Vegas Festival.

But perhaps our highlight of the night? The moment he wrapped up his set, leaving fans with lots to think about: "Vegas, till next time. And when I say next time, very soon," Lamar teased. Are you thinking what we're thinking? Was K-Dot hinting at an upcoming drop? While your guess is as good as ours, his farewell message was enough to get the online world talking.

In case you forgot, it's been four years since Kendrick dropped his last album. Is #5 sooner than we realized? "There's beauty in completion. And always faith in the unknown... see you soon enough," the Oklama artist teased back in August of his final TDE album. Well, you heard it here first. Stay tuned as we keep up with this rhyming legend.
