New Reason album on the horizon?
Finally, some new Jay Rock! We're remaining hopeful that he's next up for an album release because he's someone rap needs to drop a full length project. And Jay Rock's return is quite awesome with this equally dope song title that's got us thinking crazy. And for the second "Money Trees" Rock raps about those similar themes as in the first: making money and maintaining in the hood. Listen to "Money Trees Deuce" after the jump.
Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar have both had themselves a very busy 2015 thus far. For Kendrick he's dropped his highly-anticipated sophomore studio album in To Pimp a Butterfly and Kanye has kept himself busy with fashion, multiple interviews, "All Day", a guest verse here and there and his new album So Help Me God is forthcoming. And now the two join forces on 'Ye's "All Day" remix. Kendrick Lamar provides a full verse despite the inital leak only containing a part of it. You can check out Kendrick's full verse on 'Ye's "All Day" after the jump.
Get this: Kendrick Lamar's long-awaited, highly-anticipated followup to his 2012 breakthrough album good kid, m.A.A.d city, To Pimp a Butterfly will be out in roughly ten days! And so far the rollout has been pretty swift; from "i," to "The Blacker the Berry," an intense performance on The Colbert Report, and the ultimate unveiling of the album title and artwork. It's all starting to come together. And now it looks like we are being treated to the much-talked about but shrouded in mystery track "King Kunta." "King Kunta" finds K-Dot in a similiar lane as "i" with its funky musical backdrop and live instrumentation. The track, however, has K-Dot doing a little bit more with the lyrical content, going in on racial themes and black empowerment. It's certainly no surprise that Pharrell has called the song "so unapologetically black." Go ahead and listen to it yourself after the jump!
The previous report that Kendrick Lamar's new album is [Untitled] is false. The official album title is To Pimp a Butterfly. Album release date still March 23rd. Read more, including the track listing, after the jump.
These next few weeks will be littered with Kendrick Lamar news, so get used to it. King Kendrick started by finally announcing the title and release date for his highly-anticipated good kid, m.A.A.d city followup. Now he's blessing us with a lengthy freestyle over some memorable Notorious B.I.G. instrumentals after he stopped by Big Boy's recently-relaunched Real 92.3FM in Los Angeles. Check it out after the jump.
