The contest will consist of eight questions, each about one of the eight tracks from Untitled Unmastered, asked in random order. 

Participants must use the hashtag #UntitledLyrics to submit their answers, either on Kendrick Lamar's Facebook page, or via replies to his Twitter account. Prizes include a T-shirt, hat and backpack to rep your love of Lamar and Untitled Unmastered.

With that said, Kendrick urges fans to listen to the album carefully beforehand, as the questions "will not be easy." 

Good luck!
