“DAMN.” is made of 14 tracks in total and it boats collaborations with Rihanna or U2.
After Rivera called Lamar “irresponsible” after his 2015 BET Awards performance where the rapper stood on top of a police vehicle and broke free of chains, Lamar rapped about Rivera on his new album which dropped on Thursday.
After weeks of feverish anticipation – and just days ahead of his headlining performance at this weekend’s Coachella festival – Kendrick Lamar released his new album, “Damn,” on Thursday night. “This is why I say that hip-hop has done more damage to young African Americans than racism in recent years, “he said”.
All week, loyal Lamar listeners have been looking forward to hearing the new music. Then he goes on to reiterate his stances of Kendrick’s 2015 performance being irresponsible and attempting to blame Hip-Hop for the struggles in Black America, again. Should the suspected follow-up album be titled NATION, the theory also points out that an “O” would replace the “M” on K-Dot’s head to represent a halo. One theory is that Kendrick Lamar died at the end of this new album and will be resurrected on Sunday in a new album. “Nobody’s seen more violence – no big time reporter has ever seen more ghetto violence, urban violence than me”. Just given the bare bones we fleshed something out that has a lot of people talking. “[Hip-hop is] the worst role model, worst example, most negative possible message”.
“I didn’t particularly care for the way he mentioned me”, Rivera said during a podcast on Friday. It officially drops at midnight via TDE/Aftermath/Interscope, but a little birdie tells us it hit the web early (we can possibly blame Lebron James or retail stores).
