Kendrick Lamar starts the year off with his new controversial single “The Blacker The Berry“. The outspoken rapper didn’t hold back on speaking his mind on race relations in America especially in light of the recent deaths of unarmed black males at the hands of law enforcement.
The song, which would appear on his forthcoming, yet-untitled album chronicles the struggles of the black male experience told from the perspective of a narrator.
“Came from the bottom of mankind, my hair is nappy, my dick is big, my nose is round and wide. You hate me don’t you? You hate my people, your plan is to terminate my culture. You’re fucking evil, i want you to recognize I’m a proud monkey. You vandalize my perception but can’t take style from me and this is my confession.”
Listen for yourself but rest assured, it’s a far departure from his grammy award winning single “i”.
