Over the past month Danny Brown has teased us with several tracks/snippets off of his upcoming album, Atrocity Exhibition. Yesterday Danny released “Really Doe” featuring Kendrick, Soulo, and Earl. It is a lyrical masterpiece, and basically the modern day version of A$AP Rocky’s “1 Train” (minus A$AP). Danny will be making three Texas stops on his upcoming tour … Continue reading Danny Brown – “Really Doe” (featuring Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and Earl Sweatshirt)

Last week began the beginning of Kanye West’s reappearance to the internet surprising us with the announcement of the return of G.O.O.D. Fridays.

Last night, Kendrick Lamar performed on The Tonight Show, and he unsurprisingly killed it. What did come as a surprise was his performance of a new untitled track, which he calls “Untitled 2”.

K. Dot combined "u" & "For Sale?" in this polarizing new short film called "God is Gangsta." It opens Bringing his demons to the surface, he attempts to drown his sorrows in some hooch and spittle while he berates himself. As he screams and jerks about, one can almost feel the despair and fury that he must feel every time he relives the memories of his losses.
In the second half, Kendrick is unbothered by the swarms of perky and seductive women that stroke and attempt to seduce him. He has subliminal messages peppered throughout, displayed for less than a second before it cuts to the next scene. There's some comedic ones like "life is like a box of chicken" and "never trust a n*gga with too many haircuts." But of course, he adds some somber tones: "if I blame you for a loss, I'll be giving you all the credit" and maybe one of the most powerful statements, "my tastebloods is expensive." Catch the messages below.

2015 was the year of music. Artists were dropping music left and right, changing the way the game is played and how the game is seen in general. Few, if any, did it like Kendrick Lamar did, though. Lamar and To Pimp A Butterfly are sitting mighty high with 11 Grammy nominations, even without copious amounts of radio airtime. Opinions aside, there’s no denying that the album was dark and brutally honest about K. Dot’s home life and his subsequent struggles with success.
In a recent interview with NPR, Kendrick opens up about the first time he witnessed a murder, how he struggled to reconcile his budding prosperity with the poverty his loved ones were experiencing, and his constant stream of self-awareness as he vows to avoid to be part of the problem of perpetual violence. Read the article and check out the interview here.
This is so good! “Alright” is already song of the year with its positivity, even amongst a year (and an album) full of hopeless moments, fear, and tragedy. Now Kendrick Lamar’s longtime collaborator Terrace Martin has put his own spin on the song, adding vibrant horns and smooth vibes, from the very first “All my life I had to…” intro. This is “Alright” taking its own victory lap. Listen below.

Barack Obama is definitely the coolest president we've ever had. He sings Al Green songs, he's brushed his shoulders off, he stars in Buzzfeed videos, he makes Spotify playlists… and now he's told <em>People</em> magazine that his favorite song of 2015 was <a href="http://scoremoreshows.com/?s=kendrick+lamar"target="_blank">Kendrick Lamar's</a> "How Much A Dollar Cost." Really?! That wasn't even a single. The President is out here listening to K Dot deep cuts like the rest of us rap fans. FLOTUS Michelle Obama also revealed her favorite song, "Uptown Funk," which proves she is just like every other (lovable!) mom in America. This presidential pick has to be icing on top of this week's cake for Kendrick, who also had the <a href="http://scoremoreshows.com/2016-grammy-nominations/"target="_blank">leading number of Grammy nominations this year</a> – 11 total. "Get it all, you deserve it, Kendrick."
