Kendrick Lamar - The Blacker The Berry
Kendrick Lamar's 'i' follow-up is nothing like you'd expect.
Kendrick Lamar has celebrated picking up Grammy awards for 'Best Rap Song' and 'Best Rap Performance' for his 2014 song 'i' by unexpectedly dropping a new track titled 'The Blacker The Berry.'
The Boi-1da produced track hears Kendrick Lamar take a big departure from his upbeat, positive message on 'i' and open up about social and cultural related issues.
"I'm the biggest hypocrite of 2015 / Once I finish this, witnesses will convey just what I mean / Been feeling this way since I was 16, came to my senses / You never liked us anyway, f**k your friendship, I meant it," Kendrick raps.
Yesterday the Compton rapper appeared in the newly unveiled trailer for NWA biopic 'Straight Outta Compton' alongside Dr Dre and Ice Cube.
