Kendrick Lamar's First Interview After Releasing 'DAMN.' Is A Doozy

Kendrick Lamar's First Interview After Releasing 'DAMN.' Is A Doozy Kendrick Lamar's First Interview After Releasing 'DAMN.' Is A Doozy

Trying to decipher what makes Lamar so wonderful as an artist may be a strenuous process. In some cases, the album's religious overtones and lyrical mysteries have caused listeners to divine unintended messages - similarly to the revered work of Lamar's inspiration, Tupac.

And DAMN never quite settles into one mood, mode or flow, Lamar's signature triplets rising to pitches of fury (Fox News gets it in the neck on DNA) and then into wounded reflection (FEAR runs through his doubts at 7, 17, and 27).

Oil Slips as US Gasoline Stockpiles Climb, Crude Supplies Drop
Production from major shale plays in May is forecast to climb to the highest level since 2015, according to the EIA. US inventories now sit at 532.3 million barrels, only down about 3 million units from the record reached in March.

After leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 119-114 win against the Indiana Pacers in Indianapolis Thursday night, star forward LeBron James sat down with media where he shared his thoughts on friend and rapper Kendrick Lamar's new album Damn. "I got realness, I just kill shit 'cause it's in my #DNA" And, there's no debating that.

Through this biblical reference Lamar tackles the theme of anti-blackness and the labels that have been placed as barriers to how he feels he personally identifies. Lamar speaks on this by saying Little Johnny "said books aren't cool no 'mo/Johnny want to be a rapper like his cousin". "I want to challenge the way you think, and the way you take in music". It is very introspective and examines how Lamar's past and rise to fame has effected his perspective on the world. This song is a ideal break from the darker points of the album and is as close to a love song we will get in mainstream rap. In the second stanza of "PRIDE.", Lamar asks "happiness or flashiness?" alluding to his grapples with materialistic items over true happiness. In "LUST." Kendrick raps about "wak [ing] up in the mornin' / thinkin' "bout money kick your feet up".

Ronaldo and Messi face off to decide Spanish league title
Should the club fail in a prospective appeal to CAS, Neymar would return for the derby against Espanyol on April 29. The rivalry has stretched and become more than just about Real Madrid and Barcelona .

Additionally, the few features that are on the album are utilized to add excellent elements to each song.

While some things will always remain a mystery within Lamar's art, what doesn't is the fact that he continues to use it to give hip-hop the kind of music it deserves in the midst of police brutality and Trump's administration, and how those two factors specifically affect black Americans. With production credits from Mike Will Made It, BADBADNOTGOOD, The Alchemist, James Blake and 9th Wonder, he clearly brought out the big guns for this album, and it paid off.

Trump Contradicts State Department On Iran Deal
Iran's nuclear ambitions and provocative actions are a grave risk to global peace and security, the U.S. Trump, in his remarks with the Italian prime minister, also slammed the deal .

Rihanna, U2 and Zacari are the only artists featured on the album on "LOYALTY", "XXX" and "LOVE" respectively; these songs seem to be the ones that the fans are really gravitating to. Stay tuned for more news and updates on one of the United States' best-selling artists. The song is dramatic and chilling especially with the inclusion of reversed vocals earlier in the track. The bleak track is one of many moments in which Lamar and his producers astonish on all levels.
