KENDRICK LAMAR – ALL THE STARS FT. SZA

Kendrick Lamar teams up with fellow TDE signee SZA on new track ‘All The Stars’.  Quite the departure in sounds from his latest album ‘DAMN.‘, ‘All The Stars’ is a pop-tastic, string-filled epic; almost reminiscent of Eminem’s dire pop output circa 2010 [‘Love The Way You Lie’, ‘The Monster’ etc] but far more subdued.  The…

KENDRICK LAMAR – LOYALTY [VIDEO]

Kendrick Lamar’s ‘DAMN.‘ has already given us some of the most incredible visuals.  First came the ‘HUMBLE‘, packed with religious iconography and striking vignettes, followed by the Don Cheadle-starring ‘DNA‘ and the gory ‘ELEMENT‘.  This time it’s the Rihanna-featuring ‘LOYALTY’ which gets the video treatment, and it looks like TDE have spared no expense in…

KENDRICK LAMAR – HUMBLE

Kendrick Lamar follows ‘The Heart Part 4‘ with another taste of an upcoming project scheduled for release April 7.  Over a menacing, piano-led instrumental courtesy of Mike WiLL Made-IT, K-Dot goes in on his contemporaries, encouraging us to be humble in the presence of the GOAT.  There’s a hell of a lot to unpack in the…

AB-SOUL – DO WHAT THOU WILT

Last week saw Ab-Soul release ‘Do What Thou Wilt’, his fourth album on Top Dawg Entertainment. The sixteen track follow-up to ‘These Days…‘ places fellow TDE signees ScHoolboy Q and SZA (as well as co-president Punch) alongside the likes of Mac Miller and Da$h.  For the most part, it’s an assured, if slightly unsatisfying collection.  While…
