While everyone was caught up with who was wearing what and who won what at the Grammy Awards over the weekend, Kendrick Lamar had better things to do: he dropped a new track, and boy oh boy, it is one hell of a track. “The Blacker The Berry” is as different to previous release “i” as night is to day, or as black is to white, and that is exactly what K.Dot spits over the dark and raw beat from Boi-1da; he spits black venom, and stares the racial issue of colour dead in the eyes. The fiery Compton rapper dishes out accusations like “you hate my people” and “you sabotage my community“, just two of many thoughts that are most probably floating around inside many other black Americans’ heads in light of recent events in their homeland. Kendrick’s back to his ferocious and merciless best here. What a start to Black History Month.
