He pinky swore aka promised and he delivered. Kendrick Lamar released the first single to his second studio album on Tuesday and it is Kendrick at his finest.
The track, titled “i” samples the Isley Brother’s 1973 hit, “That Lady.” An inspiring song about loving yourself, the song’s chorus screams “I love myself.”
“We got a young brother that stands for something,” you hear in the intro. “We got a young brother that believes in all of us. Brother Kendrick Lamar, he’s not a rapper, he’s a writer. He’s not an author. And if you read between the lines, we’ll learn to love one another. But you can’t do that … I said, you can’t do that without loving yourself first.”
The cover art for the single shows the hands of a Blood and a Crip forming their hands into the shape of a heart.
Kendrick’s anticipated sophomore album is set to drop later this year.
Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!
Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…
Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.
If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.
So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
