This morning, Anthony Tiffith, CEO of Top Dawg Entertainment was on one, tweeting to the social media world to confirm the release of Kendrick Lamar’s first release off of his upcoming album “i” at 4:50 A.M.
When you press “play” the very first thing you hear is a Pastor preaching:
We got a young brother that stands for something. We got a young brother that believes in all of us. Brother Kendrick Lamar. He’s not a rapper, he’s a writer. And if you read between the lines, we’ll learn how to love one another. But you can’t do that…without loving yourself first.
The track gets cut off real quick by what sounds like a record player and by the tweek in his voice, K.Dot’s first verse takes us way back to Y.H.N.I.C. (his very first mixtape).
By the sounds of it, Summer isn’t over yet guys. The instrumentals alone mirrors that of Carlos Santana’s guitar riffs and Marvin Gaye’s voice of freedom under the sun. It’s phenomenal.
Press play here (over and over again):
Oh P.S., you’re welcome –> Anticipation of Kendrick Lamar’s “i” Album Is Rising
