Kendrick Lamar-The Heart Pt. 3 (Will You Let It Die?)

good kid, m.A.A.d city is officially released on Monday (22nd October), and with early reviews being overwhelmingly positive, Kendrick lets a free one go to encourage hip-hop heads to grab that CD.

Longtime Kendrick fans, or newer appreciators who have done their research, will be familiar with The Heart pt. 2 from his 2010 O.verly D.edicated mixtape, a very enjoyable track that utilised a great sample of The Roots’ super soulful A Peace of Light. This sequel has Lamar on a similar storytelling style, though there’s a touch more autobiographical content as Kendrick details his current status in the music game, the resulting pressure he now comes under and more in a flurry of unbroken raps, supplemented by short and uncredited Jay Rock nd Ab-Soul contributions. It’s a great chunk of hip-hop that ends with a fantastically poignant line: will you let hip-hop die on October 22nd?
