SONG OF THE DAY: Untitled 3 – Kendrick Lamar

Earlier this week, Top Dawg hinted that a new project would be dropping this week from an unnamed TDE artist. Last night, an album by the name “untitled” appeared on Kendrick Lamar’s Spotify page. The album is a collection of some unreleased songs, and others that Kendrick had performed only live. Unitled 3 was debuted by Kendrick last year on the Colbert Report. The song is driven by an urgent and energetic beat that complements Kendrick’s cadence well. In a sort of call and response style he spits 6-8 bars and is interrupted by a woman’s voice: “what does the black man say?” “what does the white man say?” “what does the indian say?”. Her questions are addressed by Kendrick, and he provides some answers, but more than that he gives the listener an enjoyable ride through a complex and rich piece of music. The internet allows artists to drop projects with virtually no warning, and while “untitled unmastered” is not a complete album in the way that good kid, m.A.A.d city or TPAB both are, it is worth giving it a listen or twenty when you get a chance.
