[Watch] Kendrick Lamar Debuts New Untitled Single During Colbert Report

Kendrick Lamar is such a talented artist. He is now considered the King the rappers of the West Coast. But listening to this interview, I can definitely guarantee that Kendrick isn’t after any title or cool tag names. He is the most humble Hip Hop/Rap artist I have ever come across (I haven’t had the chance to familiarize with the great Tupac Shakur). Being such a talented artist and a major act around the world, Kendrick Lamar continuously says all he wants to do is ‘stay true to himself’.

However Kendrick Lamar performed a brand new song at the Colbert Report held last night. This is a brand new song and this was the first time it was premiered on public media. It is actually a pretty great song. The lyrics are quite insightful if you take the time to listen carefully. Don’t let the catchy beats fool you, the song has a great meaning to it. The track has not been even named yet.

I will jot down some lyrics from Kendrick Lamar’s new song you would know.

“(What did the Asian say?)
A peace of mind
That’s what the Asian said, I need a divine
Intervention was his religion and now I’m surprised
Him believing in Buddha, me believing in God
Asked me what am I doing, he said “taking my time”
Meditation is a must, it don’t hurt if you try
See you thinking too much plus you too full of yourself
Worried about your career, ever think of your health?”

It’s amazing how Kendrick puts these seemingly unlikely phrases together. Stephen Colbert randomly throws a word “cold bear” and asks Kendrick to rhyme a word with it. Within a second Kendrick replies “no hair”. Fair enough!

This untitled track kind of confuses me genre-wise. It feels like a Funk/Reggae track more than a Hip Hop track. And a Jazz tune has been mixed within along with a beautiful Saxophone session. Maybe it’s multi-genre, or genre-defying or even a whole new genre altogether. That’s the capacity of an artist such a Kendrick Lamar.

Wish we would get a new album from this talented artist.
