Check out a lost verse that didn't make the final cut of Kendrick Lamar's "Pride" record from "DAMN."
Just a few hours after Kendrick Lamar’s new DAMN. album surfaced online, TDE’s co-Presdeint, Punch, decide to “stunt” on the fans and reveal a lost verse from Kendrick’s “Pride” record that didn’t make the final cut.
"Niggas wanna post they best Kdot pics cause the album out," Punch wrote in the IG caption. "How about this pic I got from Dot of a lost verse for the song PRIDE. Haaaaa. Yea. #stunt”
From the looks of it, and as Complex points out, Kendrick was going to rap the following on the lost verse:
“Pride is my biggest sin
I tride to fight it but I never win
Layin' myself down in the beds I made
Karma is always knockin' with capital K's
It started when I was tossin' my life in the sand (?)
Crossin' the street, momma don't you hold my hand
Time revealing itself my ways are magnified
Same patterns requiring that I never camouflage
Looking at me in shock you found my identity
Asking yourself do I have room 4 empathy”
If you notice at the bottom, the pad of paper does end with “everything is subject 2 change. But not me,” and that’s ultimately what happened. Check out the IG post (below) and be sure to check out the album right here if you haven't done so already. Shit's fire.
