‘Sure Thing’
‘Grove St. Party’ (ft. Lil’ B)

Earlier this week, the hip-hop star announced that ‘Tha Carter IV’ was now “totally done” after he delayed its release to work on his lyrics.

He also revealed the influence that late rapper Tupac had on the first single from the record, ‘How To Love’.

“It was like Tupac had ‘Keep Ya Head Up’ and it was a message to women and little girls across the world just to keep your head up even though things are hard. That’s what my song was,” he remarked.
