Last week the Grammy-winning artist Kendrick Lamar dropped “The Heart Part 4,”a five-minute track of rapid-fire rhythm with a solid bass line. Other than dissing Donald Trump, in this single he revealed some interesting lines on what his next album will center around.
“Donald Trump is a chump / Know how we feel, punk? Tell ’em that God comin’/ And Russia need a replay button, y’all up to somethin’ / Electorial votes look like memorial votes / But America’s truth ain’t ignorin’ the votes / It’s blasphemy, how many gon’ blast for me?,” said Lamar as he mentions God during the song.
Is it possible that Lamar will talk about “god” in his next album? Most likely. He’s always been the artist that touches the heart of individuals with his songs and very religious. The 29-year-old cares about communities since he’s an active social commentator. “Alright” is a song that became an unofficial anthem of the Black Lives Movement, which hints to what his album “To Pimp A Butterfly” was about.
This month in an interview with The New York Times Style Magazine, he talked about what was on his mind thus far:
“Been thinking about my little brothers. One little brother, he bigger than me, he’s 22. Another brother, he just turned 11. Family.” Lamar paused, picked it up again. “I think now, how wayward things have gone within the past few months, my focus is ultimately going back to my community and the other communities around the world where they’re doing the groundwork. ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ was addressing the problem. I’m in a space now where I’m not addressing the problem anymore,” he said. “We’re in a time where we exclude one major component out of this whole thing called life: God. Nobody speaks on it because it’s almost in conflict with what’s going on in the world when you talk about politics and government and the system.”
Everyone is gonna have to wait on Apr 7 for possibly new music from Lamar, which was hinted in the single. Maybe the artist is going beyond expectations in giving fans music they deserve to hear.
