Kendrick Lamar’s new track titled “The Heart Part 4” seems to have slowed down the social media and search engines. The latest single of the award winning rapper was being expected as he had hinted on his Instagram page about it merely a day before releasing new track titled “The Heart Part 4”.
On 23rd March, Kendrick Lamar’s simple tweet had brought the internet and the social media to a complete halt, almost. Thursday morning Kendrick Lamar put a simple IV on his Instagram account. This might have been anything, but the social media and the media went on a probing spree and soon the entire world concluded that his fans should prepare for Lamar’s fourth studio album.
And people were absolutely right as Lamar came out with his latest track Thursday night. Now people are trying to make out as to what the new track talks about. Some people are claiming that “The Heart part 4” hints at a possible release date for his new album, but also called out everyone from Donald Trump and Russia to his rivals in the rap industry.
Many people are claiming that the new Lamar track disses no one except Drake. A Time report says that bulk of the track “is spent sending fiery disses toward an unnamed competitor, an impression that wasn’t lost on hip-hop heads on the Internet, who predictably jumped to their own conclusions and posited that Kendrick was aiming his disses at Drake, who released a lengthy, 22-song “playlist” less than a week ago. The pair have often been compared to one another as two of the most visible faces of contemporary rap, with Lamar being held up as a conscious, “rapper’s rapper” and Drake as the chart-topping rapper of the mainstream”.
29-year old Kendrick Lamar entered the world of music at a rather very early age. He adopted his stage name K-Dot in his teens and released a mixtape that garnered local attention and led to his signing with indie record label Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE). It didn’t take long for the music world to start taking note of him and his talent. In the year 2011, he Lamar released his first studio album, Section.80, which included his debut single, “HiiiPoWeR”. He was no longer and unknown face in the industry and so was able to easily get the support of industry stalwarts like The Game, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne.
