Kendrick Lamar Spits Heat on Beyonce’s “Freedom”
Kendrick Lamar kinda snapped on "Freedom," the new collaboration on Beyonce's Lemonade album, which she dropped right after airing the documentary of the same name tonight (April 23). You can hear the track above.
The documentary was a dramatic, beautifully shot affair that ended up being a "visual album." The 12-track album is available on TIDAL exclusively and features Kendrick, Weeknd, Jack White and James Blake.
Many of the lyrics at the start of the HBO special spoke explicitly about getting cheated on, regretting marriage, and other heavily negative references that many took to be about Hov. We won't spoil it if you haven't seen it, but it is an effective technique.
The album seems to touch on a lot of issues, personal and otherwise, and features Beyonce on a couple of songs that fans might be surprised hearing her on. It'll be interesting to see what the reaction is to the LP.
One has to wonder if her husband is up to anything. We haven't heard anything from Jay since Magna Carta Holy Grail, but there's word he might be quietly working on something. We don't want to jinx it though.
