Just a few hours after Kendrick Lamar’s new DAMN. album surfaced online, TDE’s co-Presdeint, Punch, decide to “stunt” on the fans and reveal a lost verse from Kendrick’s “Pride” record that didn’t make the final cut.

"Niggas wanna post they best Kdot pics cause the album out," Punch wrote in the IG caption. "How about this pic I got from Dot of a lost verse for the song PRIDE. Haaaaa. Yea. #stunt”

From the looks of it, and as Complex points out, Kendrick was going to rap the following on the lost verse:

“Pride is my biggest sin

I tride to fight it but I never win

Layin' myself down in the beds I made

Karma is always knockin' with capital K's

It started when I was tossin' my life in the sand (?)

Crossin' the street, momma don't you hold my hand

Time revealing itself my ways are magnified

Same patterns requiring that I never camouflage​

Looking at me in shock you found my identity

Asking yourself do I have room 4 empathy”
