Before we continue, I know some people will read the title and say, "Kendrick never went anywhere, he can't be back!" While this may be true, let's keep it real, when you have to go an extended amount of time without hearing one of the greatest in the game, you start to lose track of time. You know the feeling; it's when 2 weeks seems like a year, and a month seems like your favorite artist may never return. Well, that's how it's been since Kendrick has released 2015's "To Pimp a Butterfly."
Yeah, I know "Untitled Unmastered" was released in 2016, and although it was pretty good, all of the K-Dot fans have been waiting on an actual new album. Well, we may be very close. Recently, the TDE star released a new song entitled,"The Heart Part 4." In a way only Kendrick can, he rode the song's tempo and beat changes like he was on Sway's "Five Fingers of Death," and I'm so happy he did.
In the almost five minute long track, Kendrick talked a little politics, sports, his place in hip-hop and he even took some time to throw subliminal jabs at other rappers. While some will say he was throwing shade at Big Sean, Drake or maybe both, none of that even matters to me because the music is good. So, go ahead and take some time to listen it, then, press rewind and listen to it again. Welcome back Kendrick! We all hope that release date you mentioned remains intact!
