Kendrick Lamar – King Kunta [FULL]

Kendrick Lamar Reveals "To Pimp A Butterfly" Album Cover

Well, well, well. After months of anticipation and hearing the rave reviews, Kendrick Lamar’s King Kunta has finally surfaced online.

The song, which serves as track #3 on the upcoming To Pimp A Butterfly LP, is a unique, complex record that is a true testament to Kendrick’s game-changing artistry. Perhaps the most important element regarding the uniqueness is the atmospheric production, which is handled by TDE’s Sounwave.

Before judging the record, it’s a good idea to keep in mind that Kendrick likes to revolve his albums around a storyline. Hearing track #3 without hearing the first two is the equivalent to skipping a couple of chapters in a book.

Anyways, March 23rd is the date. Make sure to pre-order the project on iTunes to get an instant download at midnight.

Is this better or anything like what you expected? Could Kendrick be on his way to another platinum album? Listen to King Kunta below and let us know your thoughts.

UPDATE: Stream the entire To Pimp A Butterfly album here.

  • Poedarkling

    You cant ever expect an artist of such grandiose and prestige such as Kendrick to remain in stagnancy by attempting to recreate previous albums. Kendrick is a highly dynamic artist and I dig the fuck out of this song. I can’t wait to listen to the full thing.

  • Bob

    Got lots of love for Kendrick, but his last few releases failed to wow me…I mean, dude gave us songs like M.a.a.d City and Money Trees, wheres that hungry Kendrick we all love at?

    • Alex

      So you’re saying that “The Blacker The Berry” didn’t wow you at all?

      • Bob

        Yeah, it was pretty ‘yeah, that stuffs cool’, the first few listens, but it lacks in replay-value IMHO

      If Blacker the Berry or Untitled didn’t move you, you need to change the channel in your head. He’s going another direction.

    • Lauren

      He specifically said in an interview that he doesn’t want to be held back by his old work, he wants to move on to make new stuff, give him a chance.

  • anon

    I can dig it

  • Lolrax

    Brandon Butch more like Brandon Bitch amirite?

  • Cody Riggle

    kendrick fan but i like the instrumental more than the rapping on this one

  • Chris

    Holy shit, this is amazing.

  • Cholly

    KING KUNTA! So excited to see how this, the blacker the berry and i will fit into an album together. I know Kendrick will kill it

  • John Jacob Jingle-Hiemersmecht

    I am a huge fan of Kendrick, I have listened and loved all of his albums but this song doesn’t do it to me.

    Maybe others will like it (which I hope) but I am not a fan. Anyone feel the same way? Or am I weird here?

    • Gucci Balboa

      John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt,
      His name is my name too.

      Whenever we go out,
      The people always shout,
      There goes John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt.

      Dah dah dah dah, dah dah dah

    • tha kid

      feel you hundred percent. love kdot. i really enjoyed i and blacker the berry too but im not a huge fan of this song. in context to the rest of the album maybe ill enjoy it more but first listen im not overly impressed.

    • Lauren

      Probably because you’re expecting his new shit to be like his old shit, keep an open mind.

      • John Jacob Jingle-Hiemersmecht

        That’s true. It is definitely not like his other stuff. I might get use to it.

    • Balsby Ichin

      You’re not the only one. Nothing about the song moved me. With that said, I’m all for artists evolving, but keeping an open mind doesn’t magically make the song sound better.

  • Kizaru

    DOPE.

  • JonRalphs

    Brandon Butch got balls probably money as well if he’s gonna get sued.

  • Jonathan W.

    This is outstanding. Gonna go platinum in 2 weeks
