KENDRICK LAMAR – DNA [VIDEO]

Kendrick Lamar enlists the help of acting legend Don Cheadle in the new video for ‘DNA.’  The second visual to be taken from recent album ‘DAMN.‘ is every bit as compelling as the first [‘HUMBLE.‘] as Cheadle interrogates Lamar, before succumbing to his spell and going toe-to-toe with the Compton MC for the remainder of…

KENDRICK LAMAR – DAMN

Kendrick Lamar first whet our appetites for his fourth studio album on ‘The Heart Part 4‘; a track that warned we had “’til April 7th to get our shit together.”  A week later came our first taste of the album ‘HUMBLE.‘, followed by the album’s controversially simplistic artwork and news of the tracklisting.  ‘DAMN.’ is now…

ScHoolboy Q’s ‘Blank Face LP’ is finally upon us.  The TDE MC has trolled us with fake covers and released videos for ‘Groovy Tony‘, ‘THat Part‘ as well as two parts of a short film in the form of ‘By Any Means‘ and ‘Tookie Knows II‘.  There are moments of brilliance on ‘Blank Face’; the relentlessly…
