kendrick lamar came, saw, and conquered with “good kid, m.a.a.d. city in 2012. the album aged so flawlessly that it doesn’t even feel like it’s been two years since its release. welp, it has and tde is prepping for a new k.dot record. this morning, we got blessed with the first single “i”.
it’s been proven hard to make positive hip-hop song talking that real that doesn’t sound cheesy or gimmicky, but kendrick excelled on this track. def adding this to my morning motivation playlist alongside kanye’s “i am a god” + “we major”, lupe’s “i’m beaming”, and jeezy’s “me ok”. twitter is hating this song in the realest way, but it’s totally our generation’s “i’m black and proud.”
enjoy to the new jam below.
