The Compton rapper unveils the first track from his new studio album
Kendrick Lamar has revealed new song ‘i’. Scroll down to listen now.
The song is the first to be taken from Lamar’s new album, the follow-up to 2012’s ‘Good Kid, MAAD City’. It features a sample of The Isley Brothers’ 1973 song ‘That Lady’.
Speaking about his new album, which is expected to be released later this year, Lamar recently downplayed the chance of seeing multiple guest artists on the record. “I have so much to say,” he commented. “It’s almost selfish of me.”
He added that the album will feature a lot of “aggression and emotion… There was a lot left out of ‘Good Kid…’. It could have been a 30-track album. There are a few new [tracks] that can tie in with what I was talking about.”
