DAMN. Kendrick

Kendrick Lamar announced “Y’all got till April 7th to get y’all shit together,” in closing “The Heart Part 4”. Whether or not that was the original release date for DAMN. became irrelevant the moment the album was released.

Just shy of an hour long, Kendrick Lamar’s fourth studio effort is a statement. Political, religious and social, DAMN. is an effective representation of Kendrick Lamar’s growth as an artist and a man.

The hip hop world took note when the Compton lyricist dropped his first single “Humble,” however it is doubtful that anyone could’ve predicted what was to follow. Kendrick Lamar created yet another lyrically sound, community empowering work of art. 

Listen now: DAMN.

YG’s Red Friday

There’s nothing like West Coast rap and YG knows that all too well. The 26 year old released an eight track EP entitled Red Friday on Black Friday.

The Compton California native opens with “Public Service Announcement” and it is exactly what the title says. The 9 second track features a female voice announcing his upcoming project Just Re’d Up 3. The seven remaining tracks are actually songs. The sole feature is on track four “I Know”.

YG definitely represents his affiliation not only with the name of the EP, but the cover art as well.
