“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.
For his second single, Mike Will Made-It called upon his talented group of friends: Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne and Future. K. Dot and Weezy each contribute rap verses while Future (the original) sings on the hook about hustling to make enough money to “Buy The World.”
I know it sounds fancy, but I would be careful about this purchase since lately it seems like the world is a real fixer-upper. Maybe check with customer service about the return policy first?
…and if you find that number, would you let me know? I have some issues with the humidity in the summer that someone should have to answer for.
“Love Game” is straight off of Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2, and features Em’s fellow Aftermath Entertainment artist and tour-buddy, Kendrick Lamar.
Other than the disco stick rides, it seems like these guys are playing a very different love game than Lady Gaga.
A while back, Schoolboy Q released the second single from his album, Oxymoron. “Collard Greens” features Q’s fellow west-coaster Kendrick Lamar spitting a trilingual verse (English, Spanish with a touch of French). So many languages — you could learn something just by listening, like that the “collard greens” are not for eating.
Since the music on TinaCast can’t be all garbage… Pusha T and Kendrick Lamar’s latest single, “Nosetalgia” is told from the perspective of each artist. Pusha, the veteran coke-dealer and Kendrick, growing up with a coke-addict father. The track is produced by Kanye West and is off Pusha T’s album, My Name Is My Name.
Shit. This song reminds me that it’s been ages since I partied with some powdered sugar, if you know what I mean…
I think I’ll have everyone over for waffles then.
There’s only one man who can overshadow Rick Ross – not an easy task. But Jay Z does it well, in a second remix of Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe,” which also features two new verses from Kendrick.
I was rooting for a remix called, “Vibe That Killed My Bitch,” in which Kendrick would be literally “fresh to death.” Maybe next time…
50 Cent’s latest “We Up,” is pretty forgettable.
I’m sure everyone saw Get Rich or Die Tryin, and knows 50 Cent has been shot nine times. So, is it too much to expect all of 50’s songs to pop off…?
Drake’s lyrical slip-up in “Fuckin Problems,” is actually an homage to his favorite movie, The King’s Speech. Ok, that hasn’t been verified, but imagine being such a boss that you mess up your rap and they keep that take. Wow…
