Four years ago, Kendrick Lamar dropped off his most ambitious – and arguably his most compelling – body of work in To Pimp A Butterfly. With tracks like “King Kunta,” “Wesley’s Theory,” “Hood Politics,” “The Blacker The Berry,” “You Ain’t Gotta Lie,” and more, the project signaled a sense of artistic daring in Kendrick, the likes of which the game had been missing for a minute. Clearly, K. Dot had a specific vision, a message he felt compelled to deliver. As the creative process unfolded, TDE‘s Punch found himself having a conversation with Jay-Z, the subject of which he took to Twitter to share earlier today.
