A little under two weeks ago, Ab-Soul surprised us all by dropping a track entitled "W.W.S.D." out of the blue. The one-off track bore similar artwork to his album These Days, but its sonic characteristics couldn't have been more different from the album's overall character.
As promised, Kendrick Lamar comes through this morning with his new single "i." Starting out with a skit heralding Kendrick as a rapper-slash-writer, the record soon turns into an upbeat, somewhat jazzy affair, with definite radio potential. K.
As reports indicated, Kendrick Lamar is poised to drop a new single in the coming week. Originally the title was thought to be "I Love Myself," but then it was later confirmed to be simply "I." This is confirmed once more with the official single artwork, via the man himself.
With Kendrick Lamar’s sophomore album on everyone’s radar, it’s no surprise that every little detail that gets revealed is a big deal. On Monday we found out that he has a bunch of records with Dr. Dre, and that there wont be too many features on the album either.
We've been scraping up every detail about Kendrick Lamar's highly anticipated follow up to good kid, m.A.A.d city, as the details have been scarce. Last week Kendrick's TDE label mate SZA spoke briefly on the album, but as far as the rapper himself, he's keeping everything tightly under wraps.
TDE sports a pretty enviable roster of emcees, and while Black Hippy and new signees Isaiah Rashad and SZA are all pretty high profile acts at this point, it's lesser known that label president Punch is now to spit a verse here and there.
