Kendrick Lamar - The Heart Part 4

Kendrick’s continuing to show himself to be a mouthpiece for marginalised America.​

After ‘untitled unmastered’, a series of demos from his last album’s sessions, was released a year ago, Kendrick Lamar found himself at the end of his ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’, an album that hurtled him forward to being the most important rapper in the world. Since then he’s guested on all manner of tracks - both good and bad - and his return on ‘The Heart Part 4’ is an extremely composed one, the return of an artist in complete control. Predictably taking a swipe at President Trump, Lamar raps: Donald Trump is a chump, know how we feel, punk / Tell ‘em that God comin’ / And Russia need a replay button, y’all up to somethin’ / Electorial votes look like memorial votes / But America’s truth ain’t ignorin’ the votes,” and Kendrick’s continuing to show himself to be a mouthpiece for marginalised America.
