Listen To Kendrick Lamar’s New Single ‘i’
The LA artist is gearing up to release his second album...
The release of an artist’s sophomore album is always a tense time and for many, proves to be a crucial career moment - and the pressure cannot be any different for Kendrick Lamar; if anything it may be heightened given the way the 27-year-old tore the rap world apart with the release of his critically-acclaimed debut album ‘good Kid, M.A.A.D City’.
But the wait is nearly over. After many rumours regarding the song title, the rapper’s first single from his upcoming album has been released. ‘i’ isn’t what I expected to hear from Lamar, but being pleasantly surprised is never a bad thing. Produced by Rahki, the feel-good track samples the Isley Brothers song ‘That Lady’ and has set fans up to have no idea as to what to expect from him next.
While there hasn’t been much news on his upcoming second album, the 2014 MOBO nominee recently told Rolling Stone that although he has featured on many artists songs, he won’t be asking many to return the favour for his next project. “I have so much to say… It’s almost selfish of me.”
Peep ‘i’ after the jump and let us know your thoughts in the comments!
