Kendrick Lamar – i (Prod. By Rahki)
The first day of fall was introduced with new music in attendance. Kendrick Lamar released his new single “i”, fulfilling a promise many hoped he would keep. The record starts off with a voice preaching to a mass, proclaiming Kendrick to be a writer rather than a rapper, requesting each of us to read between the lines. The skit is immediately followed by an upbeat track with Kendrick engineering the inflection his voice with each turn of the beat, steering us toward a message. Is the message as clear as the lyrics themselves? Possibly; nonetheless, take this track as a hint for K. Dot’s upcoming sophomore album!
Do you think the new album will live up to the hype? Let us know in the comments below.
