Dot reveals the original title of the album: Tu Pimp A Caterpillar, speaks on the TUPAC connection, breaks down select songs and explains the idea behind the LP. “That was the original name and they caught it because the abbreviation was Tupac, Tu-P-A-C,” Lamar told MTV. “Me changing it to Butterfly, I just really wanted to show the brightness of life and the word pimp has so much aggression and that represents several

I’m with Flo Rida!” Unmoved by Quan’s introduction, the hired muscle did
