Kendrick Lamar continues to roll out new music ahead of next week’s Black Panther soundtrack, which he's executive producing with Top Dawg. After hitting us with songs like “King’s Dead” & “All The Stars,” the TDE frontman decides to come through today and share his newest offering with The Weeknd called "Pray For Me."
Over the trance & cinematic production from Matt Schaeffer, Cardo, Cubeatz, and Sounwave, Abel handles the opening verse & chorus, singing about who’s going to save him from himself. “Who gon’ pray for me? Take my pain for me?,” he croons before Kendrick comes in for the second verse & lays down his respective bars, rapping aggressively about fighting for whats right & social injustices in the process.
Available now on iTunes, take a listen to the highly anticipated collab and let us know what you think! Look for the Black Panther soundtrack to drop next Friday, with the film following in two weeks on February 16th.
I fight the world, I fight you, I fight myself
I fight God, just tell me how many burners left
I fight pain and hurricanes, today I wept
I'm tryna fight back tears, flood on my doorsteps
Life a living Hell, puddles of blood in the streets
Shooters on top of the building, government aiding relief
Earthquake, the body drop, the ground breaks
The poor run with smoke lungs and Scarface
