Listen: Kendrick Lamar, “The Blacker The Berry”


While Kendrick Lamar‘s only 2014 release ,”i”, may have won a Grammy last night, it still left a sour taste in the collective mouths of his near-rabid fan base. Couple that disappointment with the fact that his recent comments on Ferguson, Michael Brown, and Iggy Azalea seem at the very least misinformed, and it’s clear that Kendrick had a lot of making up to do.

His newest release does just that and then some. Sounding more furious than ever on some seriously banging production from Boi-1da, K-Dot sounds angry, disrespected and unrelenting all while maintaining a sense of poignancy. In other words, he’s back.
