KENDRICK LAMAR – THE BLACKER THE BERRY

kendrick-lamar-the-blacker-the-berry

Following events in Ferguson, Kendrick Lamar was quoted in Billboard as saying the following: “What happened to [Michael Brown] should’ve never happened. Never. But when we don’t have respect for ourselves, how do we expect them to respect us? It starts from within.”  He instantly faced a barrage of abuse for a statement that seemed to blame black people themselves for institutionalised racism.  Months later, and with the help of some Boy 1-Da production, K-Dot gives us his response: five minutes of some of the rawest, yet most considered pieces of rhetoric you’re likely to have heard in a long time.  Named after the famous Wallace Thurman novel, the track sees Kendrick animatedly repeat the phrase “I’m the biggest hypocrite of 2013”, before flipping the sentiment on its head a la Common’s ‘Used To Love H.E.R.’ in the last few lines.  According to actress Taraji P. Henson this will appear on King Kendrick’s upcoming album, stream below via YouTube.
