[Trending Tuesday] Kendrick Lamar drops new single, “The Blacker the Berry”

Yesterday, after just winning two Grammys (Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for “i”), Kendrick Lamar decided to give us something new.

The new song, produced by Boi-1da, is expected to appear on Kendrick’s untitled, highly anticipated follow up to “good kid, m.A.A.d city”. The track has a completely different feel to it than “i”, being a lot darker and more aggressive in terms of the production and the lyrics.  Without giving away too much, Kendrick is ANGRY and he goes off, leaving no room for confusion on his feelings regarding race and violence in America. There is no way you can listen to this track and not feel something, especially with all that’s been going on over the past few months. What that something is, of course, depends on you.

Give the track a listen below and let us know what you think!
