Kendrick Lamar Releases “The Blacker The Berry”

Kendrick Lamar just released “The Blacker The Berry,” the first single released after his last single “i” which got multiple mixed reviews. After a softer track, “i,” I personally believe that “The Blacker the Berry” hit hard. Kendrick brought his “A” game for this track since he had to redeem himself after fans were disappointed with “i” even though the track won his first 2 GRAMMYs for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance. Kendrick Lamar starts the song lyrics with “I’m the biggest hypocrite of 2015” which starts the experiences African-Americans men may experience in today’s world. Kendrick continues

“So why did I weep when Trayvon Martin was in the street?
When gang banging make me kill a n**** blacker than me?

He even flips the script on the opposition with

“You hate me, don’t you, you hate my people 
your plan is to terminate my culture.”

Kendrick ends the track with a very strong statement saying,

“So don’t matter how much I say I like to preach with the Panthers
Or tell Georgia State “Marcus Garvey got all the answers”
Or try to celebrate February like it’s my B-Day
Or eat watermelon, chicken, and Kool-Aid on weekdays
Or jump high enough to get Michael Jordan endorsements
Or watch BET cause urban support is important
So why did I weep when Trayvon Martin was in the street?
When gang banging make me kill a n**** blacker than me?

Take a listen for yourself. It’s a powerful message.
