What happens to be one of my favorite photographs to surface last year (literally, in my favorites on Twitter) ended up as the cover art for Kendrick Lamar’s newest single, “The Blacker The Berry (Prod by Boi-1da)”. Produced by Boi-1da, The KOZ and Terrace Martin on the outro, the politically charged, but socially concious single follows up his 2x Grammy win this past weekend and will appear on his forthcoming album. If this is going to be the mood of Kendrick’s new album, I’m 100% here for it.
“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 nigga blacker than me?
The views of our contributors are their own, and not necessarily those of Boi-1da.
