Track | Kendrick Lamar – The Blacker The Berry

WHEN: 10.02.2015
WHERE: Top Dawg Entertainment

Oooooooh shit. Somehow Kendrick Lamar continues to keep the buzz surrounding him red hot by dropping tracks at the perfect moment. Fresh off all of the racial tension of 2014 and spilling out into the why-did-Beck-win-and-not-Beyonce controversy comes The Blacker The Berry, the racially-charged hard hitting track we expected King Kendrick to drop after the phenomenal good kid, m.A.A.d city.

Complete with hazy instrumentals, nasal-y vocals and hard hitting drums The Blacker The Berry is everything we loved from Kendrick’s seminal album, and a lot more. Kendrick has some deep, deep hatred rooted in his lungs and uses it to project all things from calling out stereotypes to full on celebrating his heritage. All of the lyricism, instrumentation, and atmosphere of the track is nothing short of fantastic in the most thought-provoking way. This is the kind of material we expected Kendrick Lamar to release post good kidbut as always, the King always manages to exceed expectations. The Blacker The Berry is nothing short of mindblowing, and despite being the biggest hypocrite of 2015, Kendrick Lamar still proves that he is still the best out there right now.
