While the world is still waiting for Kendrick Lamar's 'i' follow-up single, one man, Scott Vener, reports to have heard it with his own ears and to say he was impressed would be an understatement. 

Verner, who works as a Music Supervisor for HBO, has tweeted about hanging in the studio with Pharrell and Kendrick Lamar, who played him his new single rumoured to be called 'King Kunta.' 

"This song took me all the way back to 90s hip hop" Verner tweeted, "This dude doesn't want a Grammy he's making movies. This sh*t should get an academy award."
