Kendrick Lamar – i

Kendrick Lamar - i

 

“i” is Kendrick Lamar’s first single off his forthcoming third studio album. The feel-good single finds Lamar rapping about loving yourself over a sample of the Isley Brothers’ “That Lady.”

 

In a recent interview with Fader, Kendrick Lamar “covered” Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off,” gushing that he “loves that song.” This shout-out was given in return for Taylor’s public love for Lamar, telling Rolling Stone last month that she knows every word to “Backseat Freestyle. ”

 

By this logic, if Beyonce covered her favorite Tupac song… would he come out of hiding to return the favor? It think it’s worth a shot.
